Trivium - Like Light to Flies (Guitar Cover with Solos)

11100 ratings | 1552394 views
I'm playing along to Trivium - Like Light to Flies. It's the first Trivium song I've learned in its entirety (probably because it's the easiest!). Regarding the distortion in this video: I was not using speaker cabinet simulation on my POD, so the tone sounds very harsh and fizzy. On all of my more recent videos, the tone is much better, so please do not comment about the tone in this video if you don't like it. Trust me, I've already heard this dozens of times. Thank you!

i enjoy your commitment to not using alternate picking, and somehow manage to play what is intended for alternate picking still with relative ease.
Joostin Kookel (2 years ago)
probably easier to make it sound clean without the added strokes of alternate anyway L:D.
iKlinja (2 years ago)
Joostin Kookel It wasn't intended for alternate; Matt is all down stroke :)))

R Reeps (2 years ago)
His guitar tone was pretty legit for 2007. Nice chops
krebskrank (3 days ago)
I heard this cover more often than the original track, it have to sound exactly like that. The tone is absolutely perfect. Go away with your whatever equipment, this is how metal should sound. Rough, brutal and amazing.
NekroMcFly (8 months ago)
when I saw this back in 2008 his tone was amazing to me, but now 10 years later and after using a lot of diferent ampsimps including BIAS, I came here and listen to this cover again, and I realize that this tone is truly trash. POD 2.0 now is trash, back then it was the great.
GM Skywalker (1 year ago)

Russ Reeps sounds like he didnt use a cab simulation

IKR. This is relatively easy to play but so exhausting without alternate picking. But the sound of constant downstrokes is just too good.
Thomas Lakes (2 years ago)

Nathaniel Finalet (2 years ago)
Anybody know what his guitar is tuned to?? After playing along to the original song then to this video, his guitar definitely sounds like it's in a higher key for some reason...
kretelj (2 years ago)
He does change the songs pitch so he doesn't have to tune his guitar out from what he's using.
Nicholas Wiranata (2 years ago)
I'm sure he knows it's drop D. He said he played along with the original. He's right in saying that the key in the video is higher. I'm guessing he pushed the audio up a semitone for copyright reasons.
Alex C (2 years ago)
Nathaniel Finalet it's drop D. Standard E, just tune the low E string down to D
ba0511 (2 years ago)
he is in dropped D
Nicholas Wiranata (2 years ago)
It sounds like he's playing a semitone higher than the original in the key of Eb minor.

Vengeance By Venom (3 years ago)
I read the description about him not using the cabinet speakers or something therefore getting a harsh tone.. But the solo kinda sounded like a classical instrument in the beginning haha! xD

RODE2112 (3 years ago)
@ michicho caca - Original music is wonderful! It lets out your own instincts and shows your personal talent. Doing covers is how you  play for generic crowds, and tests YOURSELF against OTHER people and for trying to learn new techniques, styles, expand your horizons, etc. Both are equally important in my point of view.

killed it
michicho caca (3 years ago)
No offense .but if I'm really good !!!! Maybe I can create my own music I hate covers why if your talented waste your time repeating something that already is been done. Just my opinion thanks
Kevin Owens (3 years ago)
He was in 3 different bands. He is 36 now. When grow up and get a real job and have a family, this is the kind of stuff that helps you keep your love for guitar and metal going. He is a good friend of mine and I know this, otherwise I wouldn't comment. When you work a ton and have kids it is hard enough to find the time. I only wish he would play more often now. He was a lot better guitarist than I was.
amgonna bakeyobread (3 years ago)
+michicho caca No offense, but show some respect! If you bothered to look you'd find some amazing original music on Buckeye's channel too!

You2ubeTool (3 years ago)
Great playings. The distortion sounds about right. Now, I don't want to criticise the tone as he knows it's pretty thin... but I have to say I'd love to hear Mr Buckeye re-do this video with some thumping valvey goodness! Such skillz deserve a better sound!

its downstroked, trivium downstrokes pretty much everything, they have songs way faster than this that are downstroked
Algastar (4 years ago)
Yeah me too, it's the way its meant to be played. It's how Trivium did it on the album and at live shows, and it's also how killrbuckeye does it.
