Old fan letters - pre Internet

I have been a Steve Vai fan since the David Lee Roth days. And a user here at the forum for some years. I remember I read somewhere something about Steve Vai sending out "fan letters" in the pre Internet days? I don't remember what they where called/named, so not sure what I could search for on Goog...

Re: Modern Primitive/PAW25 Discussion!

I am maybe a bit more into "easy" songs these days with strong melody. But interesting to listen to all new songs, and learn the history behind them all. So my favorite songs are: "Mighty Messengers", "The Lost Chord" and "Upanishads" from the album "Modern Primitive". And on "Passion And Warfare" t...

Thanks people and Mr. Vai himself :guitar

Vinnie Moore - Aerial Visions (new album oct. 2015)

It's been a long time since rock'n roll. It's also been a long time since a new good instrumental rock album. A few days ago I noticed Vinnie Moore released a new solo album in oct. 2015. I don't read guitar magazines these days, so I believe I first saw it at Youtube.com The album is called "Aerial...

Re: 2016 Tour

The P&W is of course an excellent album, but I am not a very big fan of these anniversary tours, whoever the artist is. A re-mastered album is very welcome, but drop the tour if you ask me. I would more welcome to hear the news that Steve Vai is in studio and working on new songs :mrgreen: Just Stev...

Try again, another Internet browser (Firefox, Chrome etc), ask a friend etc. Guess it is just some temporary error. With Chrome or Firefox I believe you...

Re: Fixed bridge guitars. Similar to pre 2000 JEM feel?

You could install a trem. locker. Something like this: http://rpguitars.co.uk/Tremolo_Stabilizer_Strat.jpg Or just find a cheap guitar with fixed bridge and pickups and a neck as you like. Or something a bit different (12" radius, 24.75" scale, Les Paul) this Epiphone Les Paul: http://www.epiphone.c...

Re: Stillness in Motion - Vai Live in L.A

Just seen the complete dvd so a short review comes now. I been a Vai fan since the late 80's, the David Lee Roth years. So I guess I have seen most of Steve's official solo artist videos. Also seen Mr. Vai a few times live here in Norway, in Oslo. But not this tour. The live show setlist was good, I...

Re: New album?

I read in the Facebook chat that there will be no blu-ray so after waiting some time I can now order the dvd. Always good to know before ordering. Read the Facebook chat yourself if you want the excact answer. It was something about Sony had for now no plans about a blu-ray edition. The 3+ hours bon...

Re: Steve talks Passion & Warefare 25th anniversary and Zapp

I just read Guitar Player may 1990 issue. Vai on the cover and he talks about the album, songs etc. Interesting to read again 25 years after I first bought the magazine. Also now reading Guitar Player may 1988. That was when David Lee Roth's "Skyscraper" was released. Also interesting to read. Steve...

Re: New album?

3D has flopped before also. In the 80's or something. It just comes back again now and then. I don't like 3D for movies, but maybe for PC gamers? Well sometimes when I watch 3D I get a bit "sea sick". My brain don't like the fake 3D stuff. I like Blu-ray or "full HD" (1920x1080 resolution). The brai...

Happy holidays to every member and of course Steve Vai :mrgreen: Nice to see a new Jem with maple fingerboard coming. In dark winter days here in Norway it is nice with some light looking wood. Don't hold back if you have any Prestige maple Jem's in plan for the future. And we hope to hear from you ...

Fingerboard Visualizer - free Android and Windows app

Hi! I do some programming on my spare-time, as a hobby. So I made this Android app that can be used for exploring and visualizing a string instrument fingerboard. You can save images to JPEG or PNG files. You can change number of string from 1-10, and tuning for each of them. Not a app that will tea...
