I used to be able to play a chord of all E's in standard tuning using only my left hand to fret notes. I know it's not technically a chord, because it's just one note, but it was freaking cool looking. the chord looked like this e 0 b 5 g 9 d 2 a 7 e 0 Don't try this at home! Actually, try it at ho...

For the Love of God, I think. Such an ingenious display of both technical skill and songwriting ability.

Re: Who is Jack Butler?

Can anyone tell me this? I tried to get Steve Vai's soul (by him signing a paper declaring his soul mine, as an autograph), and he started signing it, but then saw what it was at the last second, laughed, crossed out his name, and signed it as Jack Butler!!! What a guy. So is this Jack Butler actua...

For The Love of God, and after that, it's a tie between Tender Surrender and The Black Forest. Black Forest just kind of puts me in a surreal otherworldly mood that I love.

achilles: by what measure? lol. rush is fantastic .. can't really ever get enough. ~A I really just feel that Zeppelin has much more of a prescence. There's a lot of stuff they have that's "under" the music. I think Rush sometimes does stuff just to make it hard. They remind me a bit of a toned dow...

Well, to be honest, just a year ago, I was an absolute file sharing freak, and I still shared files occasionally up to a couple months ago, when I was listening to Alive In An Ultra World (great album, by the way, I would suggest all Vai fans purchase it) and I thought "I cannot believe people are l...

Yes, Steve went to Berklee School Of Music in Boston if memory serves. I plan to go there, too. I hear it's a great school.

Personally, I really respect vegetarians and vegans a lot. But I would never become one. I just figure animals have killed animals for food since the beginning of life on Earth, and there is no point in stopping nature's course.

I just saw Rush recently on their Vapor Trails tour. It was cool, but I certainly think Zeppelin is a much better band, both in the studio and on stage.

I actually use his pink one. It's 1 mm thick. Great pick, by the way. Does anyone know where I can buy more?
