Re: Vai has no feel

My guitar teacher reckons vai wouldnt know phrasing, feel or emotion if it slapped him on the arse. he reckons he cant play blues at all and reckons that all he does is play a million notes per second. He reckons Eric clapton is better for feel along with a long list of other players. My question i...

woa, i've never actually descripted my style. although i like to play penthatonic bluesy style stuff when it fits(almost anywhere with a minor/minor-ish scale) my main influences are fredrik thordendal from meshuggah and Mattias Eklundh, so i pretty much like to play in the half-whole tone scales, m...

u can also do it by hitting the bridge gently with the side of your hand, if you're too lazy or the song is too fast to catch the trem bar.

ahhhhhhhhhh!! i actually have read and seen all those thing, but what i DIDN'T know is the index/middle finger stuff, I was trying to do it slapping the harmonic directly with my middle finger without any other finger touching the string (and it actually worked about once every 100 tries). I'll be p...

IA's whammybar+harmonics

anyone know the correct way to hit mattias eklundh's crazy harmonics? i've tried and managed to play the first part on The Grey Hat of Compromise, just to practice, but when i try on harmonics on the 3rd fret on the G and D string, i always get the stupid low 6th string to ring, and the harmonic jus...

the instrumentation and the tempo and/or rythm variations are important too, but indeed, a change on the scale makes all the difference, or a change on one or many chords, like for example a piece of the melody or a phrase that sounds good with a chord that's different from the original one, that he...

IA's great, he quickly became my favorite guitar player shortly after i heard the road less traveled and freak guitar. His album Mr.Libido - Sensually primitive is hilarious too, and it has not a single guitar note. and judging by some videos, stuff i've heard and stuff, he's a great guy and funny a...

hi. another thing i'm thinking right now is to make a really soft slow maybe octaved melody, or just a little lead of only a note or two per chord, try with 4ths and 2nds so it adds a little body to it. or making a little response to the vocals, say each verse or couple of verses.. or making the sam...
