This is a song that's one of my favorites of all time. Mainly because of the solo near the end. One reason I like it so much is because it's a perfect example of how fast playing and sweep picking can evoke just as much emotion as anything else.
A lot of people say things like: "Yeah fast playing is impressive, but it doesn't sound good," or "It doesn't have any feeling."
Well this solo evokes a ton of emotion and gives me goosebumps every time. And in fact, the technique that gets talked down on the most (sweep picking) is the part of the solo that evokes the MOST emotion. But one reason is because he doesn't just sweep up and down through each arpeggio, but he doubles up on some notes, and uses different variations of the arpeggios. It's a great example of why it's important to come up with variations of your sweeps. Have a listen: (if you want to go straight to the solo, start at 4:42)
