When I met Steve at the meet and greet in 2007, I gave him a CD of me playing "For the love of god" on my keyboard using a backing track I found on the web.

These backing tracks will take the keyboard covers to the next level, and hopefully if I ever get a chance to meet Steve again, I'll be able to give him better sounding covers.

I really hope these are more like the original backing tracks than the "naked vamps" tracks they once released. Those were packaged and designed to look like the vai albums, had a couple of traks that sounded somewhat remotely like the original track but wern't the real deal at all.

What I really need is a background track for The Attitude Song as heard on the G3 -97 album.

Is it just me or is the maple leaf between the words "Naked" and "Tracks" on the cover really a touch of humor? :)

Cool looking package, by the way!

Hi Guys,

I have to say, this is great news and a really really good idea!

I cant wait....

I feel it is really going to influence what we are going to see on YouTube over the next few months!!

Good point... will these tracks have the vocals? I hope so!!!

Also... will these be available for purchase (or pre-order) before July 31? I just wanted to know if I would be able to use that purchase as my entry into the Vai Equipment Giveaway.

I wouldn't mind if there were some songs without the vocal tracks in this boxset, cause I can happily imagine myself trying out "All about Eve" or "Voodoo acid" :)

But I understand this is not the concept of this package. I believe it will be mainly lead guitar stuff, which is perfectly alright, of course. (Just as long as there's a naked "The riddle", so that we can all go lydian till we're blue in the face.) ;)

It seems the Naked Tracks will be the Naked Vamps tracks re-packaged.

Here is the track listing for two of these :

"Steve Vai Guitar Styles & Techniques by Jeff Perin, Hal Leonard", P&W + S&R:

- The Animal
- The Riddle
- Answers
- FTLOG
- Still my Bleeding Heart
- Touching Tongues
- S&R
- Rescue me or Bury me

Alien Love Secrets :
- The whole damn 7 tracks

Is this it? When will a release date be set?

No, that's not it.

I don't have a release date set for the physical package just yet, but it's currently being pressed. The tracks will be available on iTunes imminently.
