Re: cobalt strings

I tried the cobalt strings in 9's on a JS1000. It brightened the sound of the instrument up, which I did not like. I had also read that the cobalt would wear your frets out quicker than regular strings, but that may not be true. Anyway, I removed them and went back to D'addario. They (cobalt) did fe...

Re: I don't like the 'Legacy tone'

I like his sound. Do not know too much about the Carvins, but I know he utilizes different pedals, and therefore gets the sound(s) he is looking for.

Re: EVERYONE LISTEN UP

When I was around 48 or 49 years old. My teenage son, who had just started getting into playing electric guitar got me to listen to some of his stuff. I was blown away. How could I have gone all these years, listening to rock and metal & never heard about him. I am making up for lost time now. Saw S...

Re: Vai has no feel

I can see the passion in Mr. Vai's playing. I see the emotion when I watch him play for the Love of God. Not knocking the teacher, but he should respect what Steve has done for the music industry.

Re: Steve’s “Ultra Zone” Emerald Ultra Guitar

Ultra Zone is a super nice axe. Has the looks that I think Steve likes.

Got to see Steve play it at the show in Durham, NC and it really sounded good. Of course anything that has strings on it and is in Steve Vai's hands is going to sound supreme.

Re: Help choosing pickup color and type

Either sounds like a good combo. Post a pic on the route you decide to take.

And if you ever decide to get rid of the old pups, hit me up. I have a RG470 & RG570 with the same config and I like the sound I get with the originals.

Thanks, Steve R

Re: Where did Steve get the melody For the Love of God??

I started wondering who had written the original FTLOG when my wife who was in the next room heard I was playing the song from You Tube on my PC . It was the version where he plays the song live with the Holland Metropole Orchestra . She told me she had heard that song before but did not think Steve...

Re: 25 August 2012 Fall Tour - Carolina Theatre - Durham, NC

Really enjoyed the Durham show. Never have been to a live performance to see Steve, and I was not disappointed. Super nice guy. Got the new CD and now on the lookout for Passion & Warfare.

Hope to see him again soon.
