@CSGuitar89 Thanks for the response! I really appreciate how you always put in the effort to respond to your fans and to help people enjoy music in the same way you do (through your tutorials and feedback). You’re a great musician and inspiration! Rock on!!

@AttackAndConquer For the string parts I just used the standard midi instruments from GarageBand with some compression and reverb :)

Written By CSGuitar89 on March 4th, 2012 @ 7:42 am

Do you remember what strings VSTi you used for this?

Written By AttackAndConquer on March 4th, 2012 @ 8:18 am

OMG! There’s no words that can explain my love for this song… And this remix just made dreams come true! T-T

@philiphuynh Hey! The strumming for that part is D, D, U, D, U, D, U, D, U. Hope that helps :)

Written By incomingVirus15 on March 4th, 2012 @ 1:47 pm

dude, it’s strange how great songs like this get really badass and even better with some distortion hahaha. Dammit it’s very good bro…

Written By MattSoares42 on March 4th, 2012 @ 2:20 pm

what is the strum pattern at 0:10 to 0:15? Thanks

Written By philiphuynh on March 4th, 2012 @ 2:29 pm

very very nice… love it!! but a little bit more emotions in your guitar playing would be more awesome…

keep up the good work!
