Re: I'm Starting to Get Bored of Playing

Re: what do you play from

Hopefully both? It's an interesting question. I probably play more from the mind when I'm out of my comfort zone and have to *think* more just to get something that sounds reasonable. If I'm playing something more comfortable I don't have to think as much and can play more from the heart.

Re: I'm Starting to Get Bored of Playing

I have like 30 song ideas Most people I know have tons of riffs, chord progressions and melodies; but it's a whole other story to take those riffs, progressions and ideas and turn them into songs . The important thing in my mind, is to pick some and just finish a song. Come up with a structure, rhy...

Andy Alt in Vintage Guitar

FYI, I noticed Andy Alt got a pic in the latest Vintage Guitar (with Tom Kiefer on the cover) - he's trying out an Evil Robot amp at an amp or guitar show. They call him out. Congrats, Andy!

Re: 17 August 2012 Fall Tour - H.O.B. - Lake Buena Vista, FL

Amazing show. And even more amazing, my wife loved it as well! This is my first time seeing him live (other than the Alien Guitar Secrets clinic). Because we had a babysitter who wanted to leave before midnight, we had to leave just as his acoustic set was starting. Still, it was everything I hoped ...

Re: Steve's new album "The Story of Light" is being rel

Just got mine today! I'm really diggin it! And Jesus Christ Weeping china doll was amazing! Hard to pick, but so far that's my favorite track on the album. John the Revelator is great. The solo in "The Moon and I" is just unreal. Creamsickle Sunset is an awesome track. Mullach a' TtSi' is beautiful...

Nevermind, as translation would blow your mind anyway. :lol:

Re: Steve's new album "The Story of Light" is being rel

Got my disc & DVD package last night (a week early!). The album is awesome, and the "behind the scenes" DVD is great as well. Really going to dig into the album over the next couple days but first impressions are: A+. When did you order the package? Which one have you chosen? I ordered right from V...

Re: Announcing Steve Vai’s 2012 North American Fall Tour!

House of Blues Orlando is listing tickets at $27, although they're not on sale for two more weeks. Not sure if that's the final price. If it is, wow, that's the deal of the century.
