My guitar teacher reckons vai wouldnt know phrasing, feel or emotion if it slapped him on the arse. he reckons he cant play blues at all and reckons that all he does is play a million notes per second. He reckons Eric clapton is better for feel along with a long list of other players.
My question is, Has anyone ever come up to you and said Vai is crap and stupid and what was your reply?
Vai had a key to open a door to my soul...and you say he has no feel?
I felt him every time I listen...and ignored him everytime i don't...
yes, there is one time my boss who was a fanatic Eric Gale fan, reckons that Vai is very technical...I say...to his face...that...yes...Vai...had a lot of things he wanted to say at the same time...he...did...abuse...his...guitar...yes...he...is very...technical!
only a Vai would know a Vai...ha ha ha!
