Yesterday’s post about the continuum was really to just give a little background. I bought Black Clouds and Silver Linings, Dream Theater‘s newest album earlier, and it’s probably my favorite album of the year. There’s one solo, however, in “A Rite of Passage” that I just couldn’t figure out. It’s distinctly a Rudess solo because it’s just out there, but it wasn’t a regular keyboard solo or the continuum. So yesterday I had stumbled upon Rudess plugging Bebot for the iPhone. It’s an app much like the continuum in that you can slide around and play notes. Then, I found this video of the Rite of Passage solo section. Blew my mind.
