That photo (the live shot) is not Photoshopped, and shows clearly that Steve has only 5 fingers on either hand.
Please, let this not turn into a "secret sauce" thread......

Use your eyes, everyone and not your brains. I can clearly see the base of six fingers.Mikey has clearly Photoshopped the end of them out.

Yea, zeds picture only shows him having 4 fingers. An index, middle, ring, and pinky.

I still think its a joke. Maybe its that one joke "how many fingers do i have?" and they say "10?", and you say, "No, i have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs" . He has 4 fingers and 1 thumb on his left hand.

Please BBB, i love steve vai's music and that makes him my guitar idol. but im not going to believe that the reason he plays so good is because he has 5 fingers on his left hand (and one thumb). He is musically inclind and a prodigy. And he used to practice for days on end till he got everything right.

I have a copy of that original photo-don't ask how I go it-lets just say that after several boxes of donuts, Mikey tends to get sleepy and a small person, perhaps a dwarf, can sneak past him and into the 'lair of the Vai' and rummage around in drawers and paper bins-

So what the hell is this? Steve's tucked his sixth finger behind the fretboard to save m Mikey hours of toil with Photoshop but he didn't realise it was sticking over the top. I'm not saying Steve's an amazing player and thus an idol to all of us on this board because he has six fingers, I'm just saying that it has helped with his virutosity.

so your saying he has 2 thumbs. How does that enable him to play so well. my friend has 2 thumbs(not even joking, its fucking awesome) but the only upside to it is he can mute the strings when he sweeps. IT DOES NOT MAKE HIM FAST AND MELODIC. just cleaner. He is good because he practices.
