Re: Steve Vai 10 Day Fast

I've heard him talk about this- He does a long one and a short one I think once a year- or maybe 2 short and one long a year-- it was a coincidence that the long fast coincided with him tracking the leads of P&W/FTLOG and he recorded it during his fast- he didn't do it purposely or try to get that ...

Steve Vai 10 Day Fast

As long as I have been a fan of Vai I've just recently learned that he engages in the yearly ritual of a 10-day fast. To be able to fast for 10 days without food requires incredible discipline I imagine. I have only ever fasted a a maximum of probably 3 days in my life. When I did this I actually ha...

Re: Steve has changed over the years

To a degree I agree but we all change and age. No one's gonna have the energy they had at 25 when they're in their mid 50's. I think all wish some things never changed but that's life. I think Steve and his band are doing a pretty tremendous job on this tour pulling off the entire P&W album 26 year...

JEM JR - Can someone talk about this guitar please?

I am very curious about this guitar. $500.00 for a JEM? I am guessing this is the same guitar Steve talked about Ibanez making solely to reduce piracy in ummm....far away places from me so many years ago. Steve mentioned that it would never end up for sale in the west as a legitimate product. But it...

Whats up with G3 Tour - Looking forward to another G3 DVD!!!

Anybody know when the next G3 Tour would be starting and who the 3rd guitarist would be? Would love to have Steve release another DVD with all the best performances from a tour like this. My favorite G3 DVD is "Live in Tokyo". But they are all great. Looking forward to many more.

Re: Has Steve burned all of his guitars yet - Im just curiou

I think it's more of a bit of her being a little full of herself and wanting to show everybody how effortless her guitar skills are. Unless her parents are sadomasochists they probably encouraged her to do what she loves. She appears to have already mastered the guitar at 14 years of age. Her future...

Re: Has Steve burned all of his guitars yet - Im just curiou

i have to say the 8 year old japanese girl,li-sa-x is even more impressive. It's crazy what these young people can do with focus. I've been practicing "Eugenes Trick Bag" forever and can't play it 1/10th as good as Tina S. I seem to remember a link on YouTube about an 8 year old guitarist from Japa...

This girl is amazing. I am guessing Steve hasn't ever seen this video because he hasn't burned all his guitars yet and retired. Maybe he can ask her to do a G3 Tour when she's old enough.

I can play some songs fast but now slow - is this a problem?

So I was watching some guitar videos on YouTube and I seen some people playing really fast and I thought, wow, I need to up my game here. What can I do? So I went back to using a metronome as an important tool to get serious about getting better at playing guitar. When I started using the metronome ...

Re: How does Steve makes his "Live Concert" Discs

For the Astoria dvd 2 consecutive shows were shot in the same location. In certain song there are 2 sections, one from each show edited together, you can actually see that sometimes the guitar changes during the song....The Minneapolis dvd I believe was a single night as are all the G3 shows. There...

How does Steve makes his "Live Concert" Discs

I am pretty sure I heard him say he films multiple live concerts in the same location so that he can choose the video footage from the best performance to put on the finished disc. Does he use all footage from the best single nightly performance judged as a 'whole' or does he literally cut'n'paste t...

2 Cellos/Highway to Hell with Steve Vai - awesome video

I just stumbled across this video on YouTube. It was a cover of Highway to Hell with 2 Cellos(never heard of until now) and Steve Vai. Very funny video at the beginning and cool all the way through. Steve is always funny in his videos. He should be a comedic actor if he ever stops playing guitar. Ju...

Cost of JEM7V up 50% - what are the factors do you think?

I remember considering the purchase of a JEM7V a few years ago. The price was about $1,999.00. I was revisiting this idea of purchasing a JEM7V and I see the asking price is $2,999.00 on at least one website. What are the reasons for this increase of 50%. Has the cost of the materials used to make t...
