Playing as a kid is at the same time esoteric and natural! Steve Vai is "only" a kid! Every kid can play like him without even owning a guitar! School is a shit, school is for apes who sniff and imitate, school is for perverts who like to sit next to others and annoy each other, and school is for intellectuals who like to copy thinking they create! the kid does not go to school, the kid stays at home playing! the process is very easy. pick your best guitar and roll it in the earth, in the mud, then pass it through a soft current of water, then burn it with your lighter and last but not the least let it rest in the wind! you will become a voodoo child! you will be able to sing the truth, you will be able to hear everything without concentration, you will be!

If you don't understand my words and harm your guitar it's your fault!

I agree to some degree.

Even though school is far from what it should be, it teach us some stuff that we need to learn, in order to open new worlds and possibilities for us as humans, as musicians and as kids.

sense when trying to make a point .

Mr. Vai's music will not bring you from A to B, it's not a straight way, Mr. Vai's music is like a universe spinning around. if you try to watch a fixed point near him you will probably get very confused till you start dancing! For "school" I mean a serious place in which you try to dominate and get from A to B. that kind of school is not a place I want to bring with me when I play. A real school is a place where kids have fun! A real school is like a concert made of chaos!
A newborn is music in silence, best than every music ever made, like a clear blackboard with nothing inside yet. being a kid is something fenomenal!

im a kid, I enjoy school, and I enjoy guitar. I have NO IDEA what you said. School is not a place to have fun, people who aren't musicians and want to be something really serious (like a doctor or lawyer or whatever) need a school that teaches. School isn't fun, it's not meant to be fun, it's supposed to be useful. There will be smarter kids who enjoy school and what they teach, I for one love biology and chemistry, along with literature and things like Spanish (I am in no way calling myself smart BTW). School is a vital part for people who don't have the creative freedom of being a musician and want to pursue a profession (that's not musical). Yeah, I stay home and play sometimes (rarely though, I almost never get away with it).

I also have no idea what you said and I have no idea what the point of my response was. Vai's music and school? I listen to Steve's music on the bus, during home room, during my classes, and anywhere else I see fit. If you mean that playing guitar is not school, meaning there is no way to just get from point A to point B, then I understand that and that makes sense. Playing guitar is not a clear easy thing to do. You can't read from a textbook and understand all the emotion and feel you have to put into playing, and can get out of playing. There's no way to simply just learn something, and then just know how to do it, use it, and have the 100% knowledge you do have with school. But again, that's all I understand lol.

Can you elaborate a little more and not in "parable" so to speak, I want to understand what your saying!

when you say how to play as a kid, do you mean how to "play your life?" Do you mean, like, how to spend time you could spend playing?

Excellence is a good thing, and I always give my best! I loved school, science and poetry. I only left competition. That's not a good thing! To be creative is to enjoy small things and I see that quality in Zappa's and Vai's music. Easy little things that evolve in very complex and extraordinary music! I started to be creative when I started enjoying not only very complex exercises but also "normal life" things like cleaning the floor, my guitar, changing strings sometimes, walk in the garden, taking care of plants... To be creative is to enjoy every little action! and you can not do it if you do everything like a race! you can not play fast if you get bored at very slow blues! ;)

Perhaps my two college degrees (summa cum laude bitches) prevents me from understanding any of this

Air guitar is a fenomenal and very practical way to remember every moment of inner peace we had! Also smashing a old cell phone! I also liked to cook and cut vegetables with my little "katana". Mr. Vai does a similar thing breeding bees. You will get rid of every tension or hurt yourself! be careful, try air guitar first :)
