Finally, Howerd Stern did something cool. The world needs more Vai exposure.

He could have picked a better song, though. In my opinion, of course.

Hello, Master. Real Illusions: Reflections is my favorte album of all time, so I can't wait until the next part. However, as others have stated, I'll buy anything you put out. The songs on Alien Love Secrets are amazing (Juice is my favorite Vai song!), so I would really love anything else in that "...

I really don't think Steve Vai needs to be turned into a cliche anime pretty boy. I'd rather the cover be a picture of Vai slaying Satan in outer space. With a guitar. That is the very essence of rock.

Yeah, when you hold your (I assume non-digital?) watch up to the pickups, you amplify the ticking. My portable phonw can make some awesome feedback. I've used the bow a la Jimmy Page. Oh, and a ruler.

Wow. An entire year has passed since I was introduced to the greatest music in the world. I'll talk more about the emotional impact this had on me than the actual event, which has already been covered in full. My friend Dylan and I were guitar players. He invited me (along with our friend Jib) to se...

The only one of these songs I've heard is Lotus Feet. That song was better than any award Steve could receive for it.

I need books about theory and notation.

I haven't been able to find a comprehensive (yet comprehensible!) book about music theory, harmony, etc. A source for notation info would be really handy, too. Are there any free internet soures? Books? DVDs?

Thanks.

Dude- very cool. I'm the same age and started listening to Vai in March. Actually, I had only listened to a few of his songs before going to the Atlanta concert. Best concert ever. I would kill to play Lotus Feet live at my school, but A. I'm not good enought to play the solo and B. I've only figure...
