It's the note arragement that really counts and not the speed they're played at.
Being a great player is way more that just n.p.s.
When I think of Vai, I think Melody not Speed....I'm sure Steve does as well....He's got it all and knows how and when to use it.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good Shred now and then but have you ever tried to hum a 64th note passage ???
It is just an interesting fact. Not a measure of the guitarists skill or musicianship, and I think everyone here knows that.
