Not even MP could have planned this  ;D coincidence of course, but an interesting one!

One flaw in this though. Where is When Dream And Day Unite?

He said "Starting with Images and Words" though, it's not like he forgot about it.

The debut album didn't have James... it's him who came up with the piano layout! Portnoy copied it for Octavarium and that's why things went sour between them.  :biggrin:

My favorite chord is apparently F7M, or Eadd9.

Eadd9 is a very nice chord on guitar in the first position.

Especially if you follow it up with an F#m11 and then an Amaj7  :)

The thread started with a conspiracy theory and then turned into a ''what chord are you?'' discussion... why am I not surprised  :lol

So apparently my triad would be A, D and E. I think that it gives me either Asus4, Dsus2 or Em7sus4.  I'm more of a sus2 guy, so I'll go with the Dsus2.
Well, then you'd remember that I was playing the guitar. I was holding the pick, I flexed my forearm and it just made a carve of the scoop. And we went ''Hey, that's pretty cool. We should use that in the production model.''-John Petrucci

My chord would be D E F (SFAM, ToT & SDOIT), I don't think that sounds nice  :lol

I guess it would something like Dmin sus2 or something like that.

This like the 5/8 thing with Score, with the 8 Studio albums and 5 live albums to that point following an octave on the keyboard like you've described.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Technically, in order of release, Luna Park and DT12 should be swapped, as LALP was released about 6 weeks after DT12, but the pattern is saved by the fact that LALP is the live document of the ADTOE tour.

Given the way they're advertising the album and tour so far, I'd be very surprised if they didn't document it with a live DVD of some sort. Being a concept album, they'll likely never play it beginning to end after this tour.

Now choose your favourite 3 albums and post the triad that results!!!  :biggrin:

Scenes + Octavarium + Six Degrees = D,E,G  = Dsus4add9  :biggrin: :biggrin:

SFaM, IaW, 8vm = D, A, G

I don't know what that chord is, but I you add my number four and five album (TA = E, ADToE = C), you would get an Am7add11 chord.
