I take my hat off to you, Mr. Vai, for all the effort you put (with your team) to get those tracks available for us, your fans! I'll never forget your expressive, powerful, mind-blowing comments that you put together as a description for every piece. This also stands for the videos (VAIdoes), you guys put online. Impressive!

if it's anything like the sound theories cd's. it'll end up costing $50 vat and duty aswell.... coz of whatever company they use. the sound theories cd's were expensive enough with the very high shipping cost internationally.... and then i got a bill for €40 ($60?)....vat and duty. i wont be buying the cd set from vai.com anyway.. maybe amazon, never got charged vat or duty from anything from amazon.com

Just the liner notes alone (available on the official site) are marvelous !
I can't wait to hear the tracks.

if i may say,
naked tracks + vai musicbooks = probably the greatest guitar inspirational work of all time. thanks to vai and co. for the naked tracks.

i do have some question in mind, is there any (or easier) way in which people from outside the united states can get copies of naked tracks? amazon music is probably the easiest but registration is still quite complicated if your outside the north america..

well, if there is no other way yet then i will just ask my sister in Florida to buy me copies and send it here so would have my naked tracks. :D

Here is a review of the Naked Tracks including a recording of 'Answers'. It shows how it is the complete original backing track with an extended section for improvising over.

Not yet - they are still in production. Should be soon though! As soon as they're ready, I'll post a news item about it.

Cheers,

It will be November now. Unfortunately the CD manufacturing plant we originally were going with was bought out, so we switched to a new manufacturer.

Sorry for the delay!

Any ideas on pricing for the CD set? I'm watching the exchange rate become less and less favourable so I'm not sure if I'll be better off getting the physical CDs or downloading from iTunes. :(
