It's been a very long time (ie. several years) since I last listened to "Trepass" by Genesis. When I got to the track "Stagnation", I heard at the end a theme which struck me as very familiar. Here it is:

Attached File  stag_frag.mp3 ( 175.05K ) Number of downloads: 228

I am convinced I have heard this exact same theme used somewhere else, but played on electric guitar, and am now wracking my brains to try and figure out where. It's not important, of course - it's just bugging me. Can anyone help?

MusicBrainz is a database of metadata; Picard is its associated tagger, complete with an acoustic matching algorithm.

However, this algorithm (AcoustID) is designed for identifying particular audio files with only minor variations, such as compression artefacts or a small offset. Two different versions of the same song, even recorded by the same musicians, won’t appear similar to it; even less completely different music that just shares (part of) a melody. There are other acoustic fingerprint algorithms for that purpose, however.

MusicBrainz (the database) could still be helpful because it also records relationships between musical works. In this case there is no relevant information available in the database, unfortunately (yet – anyone could enter it at any time, of course!).
