I've got a question about performing at live shows. I've recently come to realize how hard it is to avoid that stern face, lost in concentration while playing. Is there a way to practice a more outgoing expression while on stage?
Just wanted to ask about finding melodies in songs for solo's? When you write solo's or even play over backing tracks what is you method for finding the melody/notes to use in your solo? Hope that makes sense?
Hi Jordan, I have just bought a Korg Kronos 2 and I was wondering if you have ever or have ever considered releasing sound patches for it since I know you use a Kronos too. Also, is there any tips for designing your own synth sound? Thank you
Hi Jordan, question comes from far away (Brazil). I`m having a hard time performing arpeggios with high jumps like when you have to pass your thumb under other fingers to reach it. What type of exercise would you recommend to improve that? Thank you!
Hi Jordan if it is possible I'd like an advise from you. I'm composing ideas but i always ended up with compositions without clear structures. The song continues to move forward and forward and I can’t find a good connection for example a chorus
Hi Jordan, my name is Mike (I live in the UK). I love your new Hungarian Dance. It's so good - Brahms would have been proud to call it his own. Is there any chance you could publish a PDF or MIDI of the piano part please? Best wishes, Mike
Hi JR! My name is Daniel Kelley. I have a three year old daughter and she's a JR fan like me. Is there any way to get my hands on the sheet music to A Last Goodbye from the All That is Now album? She loves it so I'd like to play it for her. Thanks!
While meeting in Paris at the VIP, John Petrucci and you talked about the possibility to get a copy of the orchestral score of The Astonishing.
I would like to know how to obtain it?
Thanks for all!
First of all thank you for your generosity and for being so accessible to your fans. I've been following DT for over 20 years and your solo work is inspiring. Can you please post a vid of the correct fingering for DT's "Wait For Sleep"?
Hello I'm traying to improve my sight reading because the difference of what can I play and what I can read is so big. Please let me know if you have any recommendation or material. Thanks!! Greetings from Costa Rica.
I've been meaning to ask about the lead synth in "My Last Farewell". At 1:38 in the solo you make a squealing pitch bend. How did you make that raspy squeal? Is it FM? If so, do you modulate frequency or depth of the effect?
Besides your work with DT and your solo work, I've been watching YouTube clips of your solos and I have to ask: are you from another planet? How does one get that good? That last question is serious :)
