When will the 8 string be available for public?

Wonder if it'll have a whammy put on it sometime later

I do like to have a good melody or "hook" in the song, some
guitar instrumentals I've heard are just a frenzy of notes that some listeners can't identify with, but it is important to have fun...don't make em all the same 8) 'cause there are many ways to write

The ending part of Erotic Nightmares is a good start to
some Vai taps, or "Big Trouble" from Roths Eat 'em and Smile

I think the CD cost $4 from guitarworld....
I subscribe, so we're punished by not getting a CD with
the mag. So does the mag cost more of the shelf with the CD's?

Great video Mikey, you should hold of on the Vai-tunes download
and do a vid for each new song, and THEN put them onto Vai-tunes 8)

he did a little VH tribute. Billy did the bass slapping
and harmonic thing from Ed's 316.
