Re: "Live In Minneapolis: Where The WIld Things Are" DVD REVIEWS

It's a great DVD. I noticed there was a section of text during the intro of "Tender Surrender" that stated if people wrote four bars of music, that we could send it into Steve and he would construct a piece out of what was sent to him. Where do we send the music and how should it be sent? Please let...

How could my band get something like Vai Tunes?

I was wondering if there was a certain provider that my band could host its songs through so people could spend .99 cents per song download of our's from our site?

Well, I know the guitars aren't all an octave apart. The harmony is too odd to be that. The guitars I know have some dissonance going on.

Weird (wicked) harmony in "Deep Down Into The Pain"

What is the intervallic relationship between the three guitars in the part that appears 3:52 to 4:12 in "Deep Down Into The Pain"? The guitar work in this section sounds really wicked. Plus, if anyone could send me some PDFs of the music to this section, that'll rock!!!

Well, I actually go to one of the leading film school's in America. I'm going to try and get some film score work when I collaborate with some film students. I like the idea of telling a story in 30 seconds because most film compositions are real short anyway.

The Hirojoshi is my favorite scale of all time. In my solos I love to jump into Hirojoshi from time to time for more "aural attitude" even though I may be playing in a traditional minor scale.

How do YOU make your music more "colorful"?

Making your music colorful is what music is all about. Music is color. Sound is color. Some things that I do to make my music colorful are playing lots of grace notes and using notes that aren't part of the key.

How about thinking that mistakes aren't what "mistakes" are known as. Think of them as things that aren't accepted. So if you make mistakes, you are being a rebel!! Create songs full of "mistakes". Who's to tell you what's right and what isn't. It's reverse psychology to think like this. Therefore, ...

Indian Instruments

What's the name of the Indian instrument that sounds like a metallic accordian? It's usually played to produce a drone. And no, it's not the sitar or the sarangi.
