It was this dvd that introduced me to the amazing Robert Cray. He's awesome! 'Time Makes Two' is one of the most beautiful songs EVER! Oh, man! I felt the exact same way after I saw it! It's such an emotional song isn't it... Its a hell of a stretch when ya try playing it tho! Yeah I bet. I couldn'...

Ok, I'm very confused. :lol: Is the "Star Spangled Banner" not on the european DVD ending credits? Yes it is..! That was my point all along...! Wish it had the full version on the dvd and not just a snippet at the end with the creds. Good dvd in all though but it feels a little disjointed at times ...

I was talking about the actual concert, not the DVD. I went to the concert, and at the concert Neil Schon opened the entire thing with the Star Spangled Banner.
I'm sure he did. I was referring to the DVD though and not the concert...!

I'd watch the Astoria version. It's the best...! I'd agree though that I would have liked to see it on the Crossroads DVD though. I also like (I think it's) Neil Schon playing the Star Spangled Banner on the closing credits. Really nice version Really? It was indeed Neil Schon playing the Star Span...

I think you're trying to hard. Every now and again I can be on a massive creative high and everything sounds great then every so often I hit a massive slump and I start over analysing all my playing and before I know it I can be twisted in knots..! A few years back I used to play golf quite a bit an...

I too play just like you...not bad but more sloppily than I'd like... one of the things I do wrong is I lift my fingers way too high off of the strings inbetween notes. (happened from using 13 guage strings at one point....doing the SRV thing) anyway, the advise that I was given is to slow down & r...

Hi Steve Personally like many have mentioned already, any CD from you is much appreciated..! ALS is one of my favourites but I was blown away by the sound and your acoustic style on the Grammy's website. I'd love to hear more of your acoustic stuff but in the end of the day any Vai release is a bann...

For me I can't really listen to anyone faster than Paul Gilbert. Not really a fan of machine gun notes just for the sake of it. My wife recently bought the lastest Dragon Force CD. Sure the playing is jaw dropping but there was not much in the way of melody or feel, so after the first solo I found t...

Some parts from Eugene's Trick Bag but I think only coz it was in a mag somewhere. I've never really tried to play any of his songs throughout just prefer to choose some licks and twist into my own style of playing........

Yeah good point, but the thing is when Coverdale asked Vai to record the guitar parts, he must have had an idea what to expect. Personally I think it's their best album, that's not coz I'm a Vai fan but I think the guitaring really fits the songs and his voice.

Thanks for the reply If6was9, yeah I heard that Aldrich's style was more like John Sykes. I'll probably still check it out though..!!

Cheers :D
