Symphony X - Sea of Lies (by ear)

Well I found out the intro riff (it's also the chorus) but that fill at the end of the intro I'm not even going to try to figure out right now ... I tried following the guitar exactly even though the bass only does this after the first section of the fill but when I listened to the whole thing I realized the first part of the fill was the easiest.

Say, would any of you know whether they tune down one step or if they use 7/5 strings?
The intro riff is in G and that would be really crazy if they did that on the 3rd fret instead of on the open A (tuned down to G) like I am doing. By the way I'm just getting into that band, this is the only album I've heard so far, and already they are one of my favorite bands! How do they write that stuff?!?

I can't believe someone can mix up Mudvayne and Primus. That's mudvayne.
Speaking of them, the other day I listened to their song 'Dig' and realized how cool the bass is on that track. It's not too complex, but he has this awesome/strange sound that must involve some sort of weird pedal or something ....
He plays slap on a 5 string and he pops tritones on the G and D strings (both at the same time). It sounds great. I had fun with it by improvising a diminished lead throughout the song - mostly fast diminished runs ... THAT by the way is something that's really fun to do. Grab a nu-metal disc and play leads/solos to it: since there usually isn't already a lead and there is no clean singing and the rhythm is simple and has many pauses, it leaves TONS of room for a lead. You have so many options of what you can do because there's practically nothing else going on. It can be hard to follow some riffs solowise though, since writing a chromatic piece to a chromatic rhythm can be pretty hard ...

Anyway I bet everyone will find the last 3 songs that I learned pretty damned funny: Blink 182: '21 Days' A Perfect Circle: 'Judith' Thousand Foot Krutch: 'Phenomenon'

Why on earth did I learn these songs? You must think I'm crazy. Well actually, I teach bass, and those are the songs that my students wanted to learn. Surprisingly all 3 have some interesting bass parts and aren't that bad of songs (excluding apc, I liked them before having to learn that song). They're good songs for beginners, but I think a bit too hard for my students right now ....


And isn't She-Wolf fun Downfall?
Do you play it on a 5 string or do you tune down?
