MTV SUCKS! i saw a few steve vai videos a few years ago and they called the song "Im very very shy" instead of "I would love to" and they called it "It Isnt Right" instead of "In my dreams with you" which i say is 1 cool video too.

Just goes to show how much MTV care about their videos :roll:

ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?!?! I'm saying that not ONE guitar player has the same talent. Sure we can play the same chords, scales, melodies and harmonies the same as everyone else but we have our lil creative moments that make us special and we can use that to a wonderful degree.

im not saying that its all about shredding! im saying how determined these people were and how they'll be remembered for the ways they influenced others to play and so on and so on.
