Re: 9 December 2013 - Belo Horizonte, Brazil - Story of Ligh

:D I would like to, first of all, congratulate Mr. Vai for being a nice piece of God in our living planet. We took a very tastefull time while he manifested his thoughts, insights, point of views and whatsoever. The brilliant person is a brilliant musician, in fact what struck me about him is his la...

Re: Yamandu Costa & Armandinho

Yes, I knew him. That was a pity that he's gone. Regarding that tune, I watched the original at Youtube (from Ernesto Nazareth) and was amazed at the end how fast the music goes, and at that time. Is a challenge even for a Malmsteen and the moving harmony is very blazing. This is very rich and a sch...

Yamandu Costa & Armandinho

Those are two guitarrists from Brazil playing a "chorinho" named "Apanhei-te Cavaquinho".

JEM 70V SFG

As Steve Vai said in various interviews, our DNA "passes" or incorporates to the guitar, it is true, I just purchased this instrument and I'm very satisfied with her. It's very nice to play, affordable comparing to the white one (JEM7V) and virtually the same instrument and very cute piece of wood a...

Bireli Lagrene

Hello everybody, I'm amazed by the astonishing technical performance of this great guitar player. I knew him before but just watched to some of his videos on Youtube (for long time I didn't spent time listening to him and was wistful). He "dances" and bounces from rock to jazz, from blues to reggae,...

My guitars and my "EVO" (pre cambrian)

[img]http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q573/Filafizz/b7d6438a.jpg[/img] Those are some of my guitars and the white one was made by a luthier (Otto), in my hometown in 1990/1991, is kind of my "EVO", since was designed by myself and is very nice to play. Interesting that it has the arm's root as c...

I planted the seed

The story about the pond and the history of life, you know what, back in the past, probably Mr. Vai had similar feelings, back in Sylmar and, of course, at Stucco Blue studio. Brand new studio, brand new atmosphere, "old" new sensations and a young kid "gas". I think, in my humble opinion, that from...

Re: The Middle of Everywhere

We're here to help each other, with Vai's assistance, for shure.

Here comes another, just the way you like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rvH1_rD ... digest_mon

The Middle of Everywhere

Clap, clap, clap, FANTASTIC the "documentary" made about composing, scoring, etc. Very intelligent editing, it's nice to watch and see Steve's way of creating "paper" music. Gee it makes, at least me, think "what a nice guy is this guy". Steve might be a very clever person, as we see his sence of h...

Ok, Thank you a lot.

Little Green Men

I was observing Vai's Little green Men tune and noticed one (or more) thing. It seems to float between 8/16 and 4/4 measures, sometimes 2/4. That is one of the most difficult Steve's music, it is hard to keep the A9 chord (with open B and E strings, sometimes) on the cadence, in fact it is a challen...
