Juice Solo - why is the recorded version not played LIVE?

By the Juice Solo - I mean the ascending/descending part played with tapping as recorded in the "Alien Love Secrets" album - why does Steve not seem to play that LIVE?

I think that Vai is the Paganni of today - a virtuoso who I'd pay good money to go and see! And indeed, have done so! I remember hearing somewhere that Paganni used to compose these impossible violin peices to be performed in front of royalty - and then when doing so would intentionally break a stri...

Hi Steve, If it was just you coming on and playing a few scales then I would pay to see that. I feel lucky to have seen you perform several times live - just the same thrill that in times gone by that people would have felt when seeing Paganini, Segovia etc. Expericencing a virtuoso musician at firs...

I'm not that good.

But I've got the point where I can play real fast and real clean. I thought that getting to this point was everything - but it isn't.

I've become a technician - not a musician.

I need to re-think.

Complete crap.

Fool yourself if you like. You should be learning the notes on your instrument and not on the internet. Remember what you are learning is not just visual - but also muscle-memory too.

Think! How did Steve, Satch, even Segovia learn the notes? Not on the internet.

A Merry Christmas to Steve and all Steve fans from Ollie in the UK. I was lucky enough to meet Steve through the EVO experience this year - and of course, it was one of the high points of the year for me. But still the highest point of the year is watching Steve play and perform live. A great musici...

Bought the album and thought it was so-so.

Saw the gig and it brought it all to life.

Wonderful music, wonderful player, wonderful show.

An honour to see one of the greatest virtuosos/musician of our time.
