There is always some other level of expression that is either more or less informative than whatever example you start with. The level of conciousness exuded by some is dwarfed by the deluge of others. Perhaps you should ask yourself why you don't understand the complexities or simplicities of certain artists' projects. Stop blaming them for your lack of amusement. If you want a continued debate about Clapton and Beck VS Vai or Yngwie, I know a 9 year old girl that will argue "Jewel" can rally them all. It's all relative. Let our taste govern what we enjoy to listen to, not our ignorance.

The lack of tolerance around us is utterly astounding.

They are just words though.
The wisdom is in the meaning You give them.

Vai has more feel on the guitar than anyone I've ever heard.

No feel! No phrasing! What a crazy teacher. Vai's music is like a religion to him. I've heard he fasted for like a week on PAW. That's what I call a determined musician. He has loads of feel and technique, more than any other artist I know of.

im f***in outraged that a guitar would say that, if they dont like him then thats there opinion but weather he has feel or not is not and opinion is it? its true or not and he has an emense amount of feel and can express himself in a way not many other gutyarists "with feel" can, i bet he plays a strat. steve plays exactly wat notes he wants to play not because they impress people either, infact steve is a shredda but there not many songs were steve just rattles on veryy fast for ages, its not like yngwie malmsteen, were its constant shreddin, but still i think he pays with feel too, people are just 'feelin' diffrent things and wen there good enough to epress themselfs with any note they like in any fashion, everyones guna be difrent.

Yeah Wolf I'm pretty suprised myself. . . Everyone has there own opinions about guitar players and music, that's just the way it is. In my opinion it's ridiculous that anyone, especially a guitar instructor, would tell his student Vai has no feel . . :shock:
