I just love his music...some of the stuff he comes up with I think is impossible..really...you even look at the little detail of his vibrato...how he uses the round motion to control how much vibrato he wants...he is just impossible to immitate...

but I'd rather be myself than some1 else:)

ye well sorry guys for been picky but that was the impression I got, after viewing his masterclass in the UK he didnt really go in-depth if you know what I mean, like he might demonstrate some amazing thing, but he wouldnt go through the effort of slowing it down. As for youtube I've really never fo...

thx for the reply guys...I am intelligent enough to understand that vai is simply "nuts" when he begins his taps....the only thing i can do is try and pickup the notes....most of the tapping does not seam to be of triads or arpeggiated as much...its more of a psycopath haha...

cheers..

Time to revive lol..... Seriously when I head "The Black Forest" from 3:00 onwards after the lead-in...it was an incredible feeling of "no way", like I cant believe someone such as Vai could compose such phrases... Also "Hand on Heart", wow that song made my hairs stand...something inside me just wa...

Steve's Religion or view about life

I was wondering if Vai is spiritual and believes in a god, or is rather an atheist or evolutionist. I'm thinking someone as intelligent as Vai would be seeking answers.

Cheers.

The Secret behind Vai's Psycho taps...

Hey guys, I'm starting this thread because after all searching for an answer on the forums, I was unable to find one.
