Yes, "bella" means "beautiful".
Infact "bella rosa" could be a name or could mean "beautiful rose". :)

SFAM is my favourite too, but also the tone in SDOIT is very nice, just listen to the Goodnight Kiss solo. :wink:

For Vai I would choose For The Love Of God, altough I prefer Tender Surrender. :D

Erotomania is a great piece to play, but I don't think it's his hardest.

The Glass Prison arpeggios part is really hard (it's all alternate picked) and
the Lie solo is too. Also a lot of unison part (like in Metropolis pt.1) are really hard to play.

No, you're separating the notes. So don't think about the chord but the single notes.

Re: Dream Theater question

Maybe you should try Images and Words, it is a really good album.
However Six Degrees of Inner Turbolence is more similar to Scenes from a Memory, at least the title track. :wink:
