FTLOG Gypsy style

Don't know where to put it. A great cover of For The Love Of God. Gypsy style. Not by me, btw.

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

Don't agree. I didn't read too many interviews during the ALS/Fire Garden/Sex & Religion days where he talked so much about his love of composing. The composer stuff has only been talked about in the last seven years or so. I didn't mean to say that he was all into composing classical music. I mean...

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

I don't know if this is partly due to Steve's loss of technique, which has been very obvious over the years, or part of the production.! Loss of technique? I haven't noticed it over the last few years. If you compare to Passion and Warfare, than yes. But he was in his late twenties/early thirties b...

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

Ok after a good few days of critical listening...... The guy who "mastered" this album screwed up big time. Im hearing distortions/pops/crackles all over the place and its almost on every song. This album was pushed way too hot.....and the funny thing is, its not even 'commercially loud'. Kinda dis...

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

Thank you, but I can´t find it in the iTunes store, it says "not available in the german itunes store". Is the booklet included in the amazon-download too? Heh, I'm from Holland and it's the same overhere. I bought my copy here: https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=catalogdetail&valbum_code=HD69...

Re: Thank You Scientist

I got the cd last week, and couldn't stop listening to it. Somehow, it all sounds really fresh to me. Which is weird, since I heard it all before, but not like this. A truly eclectic band. All great musicians by the way. Oh, and since it's a guitarist's forum, this is a sick guitar player. Highly re...

Thank You Scientist

Ron Thal a.k.a. Bumblefoot posted this band. Kick ass guitarplaying. They got a cd out June 8th. This will keep me happy until August 14th.

Re: Mr. Fastfinger - Perfect guitar instrumental album

Hi Mika, or should I say Kon Ni chi Wa Mr. Fastfinger? I think it's really cool that you ask advice on recording your new cd. It shows you're not only interested in your own chops. Really cool attitude! And that we all know a new cd is coming doesn't hurt either I guess :wink: I don't feel I'm in a ...

Re: Vai Band for 2011 tour

I wasn't accusing him of being drunk - I was accusing him of being wildly insane :wink: You're right, though, maybe Billy is not to everyone's taste but I would definitely not agree that he lacks feel. Anyway, this will probably be my last post at Vai.com until the holiday period is over....so I bi...

Re: Vai Band for 2011 tour

I have never been a huge fan of Billy Sheehan's playing...the guy is showy but totally lacks feel. Good lord, did we wake up this morning and attack a bottle of pure Russian vodka before writing that statement? Billy lacks feel? That's like saying Freddie Mercury was a bit of a shit frontman. Well,...

Re: Vai Band for 2011 tour

'Straight forward' is a very good description of Jeremy's role in the band- and thats why i like it so much for the music. I like Vai when he's straight forward- thats why i like ALIEN LOVE SECRETS so much- I like Vai’s playing much more than Satriani but I think Satriani is GENERALLY more straight...
