Hmmm, So

Did you listen to each song 3 times like you said you were going to? When Steve's new album came out, Real Illusions, I bashed it pretty hard. I guess it had to grow on me a little bit. I give it a 7 out of 10 now. Hehehe. You compare some of Steve's work to cotton candy. Whats wrong with that? You ...

Ahhhhh

Okay, Whispering A Prayer, good song. I guess Im just not used to seeing most of Vai songs posted as acronyms with the exception of FTLOG. Hehehehe.

Eugenes Trick Bag - Video Footage other than Crossroads?

Does Steve ever play this song live? Has he ever played it live? Is there any video footage of Steve playing this song? And lastly, did Steve write this song? Who is Paginni and Ry Coder? Thank for info.

What wah/wah effect/pedal does Steve use on Windows2TheSoul

You can hear the wah/wah going constantly throughout this song which is very cool. I want to know how to get this sound. Is it a single pedal effect or a wah/wah from a multiple effects pedal? Please, someone let me know. Thanks. P.S. Is the Bad Horsie the same thing as the wah/wah pedal and is that...

Care to identify yourself to the Vai fan base?

Hello, I was just curious what your relationship was to Vai. How are you connected to Steve.

I Changed My Mind - Album isnt that bad after all

When I first heard Steve's new album I bashed it pretty hard on these forums. After having listened to the songs a few more times I am liking most of the songs more than I did at first. I like 7 of the 11 songs.

You're in love with guitar playing, not Steve Vai's guitar playing. Well, at least the last of half of your statement is true. Im not in love with Vai's guitar playing Im happy to report. If I was I would be praising every song on his new album like you seem to be doing. I couldn't judge each song ...

Yes I will stop listening. As Jonesy stated, people listen to Vai because he is a famous guitarist...When I buy a Vai album I want to hear that fukkin guitar scream I think those are the words of a metalhead, and not a genuine music lover. The thing that attracts me (and I'm sure alot of other fans...

I feel bad for Steve. What if he decides to strictly be a composer some day? Will everyone stop listening to him? :? He's so much more than just some guitarist. It's a rock fable, anyway, not a guitar album. Yes I will stop listening. As Jonesy stated, people listen to Vai because he is a famous gu...

Not Vai's Best in my honest opinion

I was expecting to be blown away by this album. When I first seen/heard the clip of Midway Creatures posted on www.vai.com a few months ago I was very excited about the new album. After hearing the song, the clip is in fact, the best part of the song. I would describe most of this album as riding in...

I have the Ultrazone Tab Book

I can play alot of this song already but I need help in some parts. If someone could just make a video at a slow playing speed Im sure I could figure it out. I'll bet Tommy Angelo knows how to play this song. I learned how to play a few songs from his videos. Is he making any more instructional vide...

Sisters Sucks

But since I've gotten back on the Vai wagon (and the internet in general), I've been somewhat...what's the right way to say this... surprised(?) that FTLOG became THE SONG from the P & W cd. Yeah me too. FTLOG is a good song don't get me wrong, but I prefer Blue Powder if truth be told, it just see...
