Its me again

I think I might have actually gotten this video off Vai.com when they offered "free" downloads of some of Steve's work. The good old days <sigh>

Unique Bad Horsie Video - Where can I get it?

I seen a video of Steve playing Bad Horsie live onstage one time and it was one of the most incredible performances/songs I have ever heard from Steve. The Bad Horsie video on the Sex and Religion CD doesn't even compare to this live performance. He plays the song differently in some parts in live p...

What would Vai be doing if he wasnt a famous guitarist???

I always like to wonder what Steve Vai might be doing with his life if he wasn't a famous guitarist. The only other thing I can visualize Steve doing would be keeping bees and selling honey to pay to the bills. Hehehe. If anyone else has any thoughts please post them.

But you kind of answered my question in a way I dont think you intended. You said that moving from acoustic to electric guitar would be easier to play which I agree with because of the action being generally lower on an electric guitar(im only assuming). And if your expending your time and energy on...

How much influence does the guitar have on speed

I've been playing guitar for about 4 years now(part time) and its mostly been learning Steve Vai songs. I can play them pretty good but I never can seem to gain any increase in my speed needed for the solos in Vai's songs such as Tender Surrender and For The Love Of God. Eugenes trick bag is another...

Surely that's a bit like painting eyebrows on the Mona Lisa because her not having them irritates you! Da Vinic painted her with no eyebrows and Steve recorded those tracks with the voices. Don't you think your being a little bit too dramatic about this? How many times have you listened to Jiboom? ...

The Audience is Listening and Jiboom without voices???

Does anyone know if any of Steve's songs have been relased or can be obtained or modified so that they can be listened to without the voices. The laughing voice in jibbom gets on my nerve's after listening to it so many times. I love the song. Same with The Audience is Listening and Im sure there ar...

The Next DVD

Ryan, I agree. I dont think a DVD that just showed a closeup of Steve's hands the whole time would be good either. Making a good DVD means having the camera focused in the right place at the right time. Have the camera focused where the most intense action is at a given moment. Just think if the cam...

Suggestions for Mr Vai on the next DVD

I just wanted to submit one suggestion for the next DVD that Steve releases. Please, please, please, focus more on Steve's incredible guitar playing and not his stage show. I enjoyed Steve's last DVD, Live at the Astoria, but it could have been a whole lot better. I always wanted to speak out about ...

Steve probably listens to Korn because they use an Ibanez Universe 7-string guitar....

What songs does Steve use Paf Pro Pickups On?

Can somebody list a few songs that Steve uses the Paf Pro pickups on. Im trying to decide whether or not to buy an Ibanez 2550EX guitar to save a few dollars or become a male prostitute so I can rake up the money to buy a JEM with the Evolution pickups. Thanks.

Anyone living in Kansas City, MO Area who likes Vai?

Hello, I live in Gladstone, MO. Im looking for some guitar players who might want to get together and just learn a few things from each other or maybe work on learning to play Vai songs together. I know how to play 3 or 4 right now. I could teach you what I know. Im nowhere near a professional thoug...

Do you know the last year of re-issue? I wouldn't want to buy one that was too old. I would be buying to to play it, not to collect dust.

Is the JEM 77FP 1 of a kind?

I was just curious if the JEM 77FP(the one Steve is seen using in the Real Illusions teaser clip) is a guitar that can be bought by ayone like the Ibanez JEM VWH or is it a one of a kind guitar made for Steve only. Seeing steve use it in the video makes me want one. Thanks.
