Re: Steve Vai Guitar Techniques 'Review'

I'm doing an album at the moment, the first for 12 years, having spent a bunch of years making music for TV, which was...

Steve wasn't making any recommendations... he just mentioned them in passing.

He is not an authority on this subject, and has stated this several times :)

These were the 2 Authors / people Steve mentioned as being of 'spiritual' or philosophical interest at the EVO. There's a lot out there, but this is a pretty good place to start... and may even be all you really need to help you find what you are looking for :)

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

It's a work of art, probably his most 'Liberated' release so far. The production is just stunning, impeccable genius. With so many rich layers and dense harmonic constructions.... and not a single note... or frequency out of place. It took a few listens to really dig in and appreciate the many aspec...

Re: Too scared to play slow ??

Looks (and sounds) like the boy's been spending a lot of time using the internet to 'develop' his right hand technique :P :mrgreen: :oops: Sorry!! But there's only really one question to ask yourself as a player... or listener.... "Is it 'Musical'.?." It's not the technique that counts... it's how y...
