Re: Vinyl collectors!

From "Steve Vai" tab book published by Cherry Lane Music... "I had fun being a little "artsy" with the manufacturing of Flex-Able.

Re: T-Ride

Indeed, the CD is awesome. Very tight guitar playing and despite the slightly annoying vocal tone (imo) the songs are great to listen to. They didn't take themselves too seriously either. I heard rumours of a 2nd CD that was recorded but never released. Anyone else confirm that?

Sorry to partially disagree but as a professional violinist I reserve the right! It's very good to be sure, but she's not playing what was originally written - her version is substantially easier. The original bowing (after the intro) should be 3 ricochet down bows followed by a single up: http://w...

Feeling smug - got to see Steve on the Sex & Religion tour in London. And yes, it was awesome 8) For me it was the best Vai show I saw until last week... others have been great, but those 2 just stand out for me. I remember the signing at Tower Records - Devin was like a recluse deep inside his hood...

wireman24, I am a violinist by profession. If you want some books I have plenty of teaching materials I can scan for you. However, I would say that it's incredibly hard to teach oneself to play the violin well so it'd be worth finding a willing teacher. You can certainly get so far by yourself, and ...

What Cleggy said... when somebody says "play me a chord" without qualifying the exact type of chord, they usually mean the Major. So if somebody says "play me a chord of B" they usually mean B Major. For a quick reference in what makes up a particular chord, look here There are a couple of slight di...
