to play faster, I always try to relax and hold the pick lightly. It reduces the physical exertion required to play, and as a result, makes life easier.

Enjoy yourself and have fun.

i wouldn't worry about people comparing you. Its okay for influences to shine through, and most of the time, people will compare you to whoever it is THEY LIKE. For instance, I done a gig or two covering some Metallica and got off stage and people told me I sound like Eric Clapton! haha I took it as...

what I'd personally like to see is more steve vai... I mean in the extra's. I'd love to have like a second dvd with like 2 hours of cool stuff.
