ya know.....
The store DOES offer "Signature Licks" Books for The Ultra Zone, Fire Garden and Alien Love Secrets which include (on a CD) the athentic backing tracks by Steve Vai for your jamming along pleasure.
These include a lot of his "popular" songs :)

Hopefully thats what you meant, and I didnt misinterperet you :)

mmmmmmm........not

what i mean is the actual backings not the ones developed on those books, which are more directed to learning the theory behind the song
and have verses and sections repeated more times ans so..........
you know?? the real song withouth guitar, for example warm regards
windows to the soul , whispering prayer lotus feet etc........

hope i made myself clear

i doubt that steve would do that, because of one simple reason... if he did, some would say, why not offer the single guitar tracks, so we could dig into his playin some more... and it's not in the mind of an artist to sell the single bits of is work... they want their fans to appreciate the whole banana.

Yup. Nice idea, though some of us already have quite a load of them with the Naked Vamps books!

Also, check Radiohead and NiN, selling individual tracks for remixing. I know I would want to hear a Radiohead/Nin/Vai mashup.
