Vaideology

I’ve written a comprehensive music theory book for guitar players. It’s called “Vaideology: Basic Music Theory for Guitar Players” and it contains all the basic, and some very advanced, music theory that can stand as a powerful foundation for a lifetime of understanding the language of music. You can purchase it at SteveVaiStore.com.

Piano Reductions Vol II

Piano Reductions Vol II continues the tradition of inspired solo piano performances of songs from my catalog. This Volume is performed by the truly amazing virtuoso Miho Arai. She has delicately, and at times tremendously aggressively delivered these performances with focus and passion. Enjoy. https://www.vai.com/pianoreductionsvol2

Handpainted Guitars…

When I started doodling with art, I decided to paint a few Jem bodies and the colorful guitar I used in the “Dark Mater” video was one of them. 

I’ve painted 4 guitar bodies so far. Two were Ibanez Strat style guitars I did some years ago for the “Experience Hendrix” tour. 

One of them, “Girly”, is used quite a bit on tour these days. It’s tuned down a whole [ … Read More ]

The SV 242 was built in 2012. <3 https://www.vai.com/guitars/jemb-1-black-pink-green-pick-ups/

#61.. Sofia.. coolest UV77MC ever! 🎶🖤🎶

Still no original BFP (or blue swirl jem :P) and the PMC that's featured in the 1992 Ibanez catalogue isnt in there which means it was just a prop after all

And all I've got is an 86 Roadstar II. Signed by Vai, Satriani, Petrucci, Malmsteen, Wylde, Bettencourt, Meneketti, Sheehan, and Abasi.

I still remember the EVO mini site. That was a pretty cool piece of the internet!

Steve Vai, you should do something similar with all the amps and cabs you own and what their history is.

These aren't yours Steve.

Great! There goes a month of my life...

Ive been, over the last 20 years or so, watching that collection morph into the staggering collection that it is... I still never get tired of it Steve.

I heard that Steve Vai has so many guitars that if he walked to the gig and dropped a guitar every few minutes, he'd lose more guitars stopping to pick it up than if he just left them and kept on walking.

Which one's are free??. I'll one of dem please🤣🤣

Was there ever any follow-up on the green guitar I read was stolen from storage during the filming of the Yankee Rose video in '86?

That’s awesome! 🎸

My Favorite is For The Love Of God MC 7 String.... Just Love that historical piece ...

Whoever post this for Steve mentioned still missing and/or stolen guitars, I know there are a lot of fans of musicians that would like to have memorabilia form certain players like Steve Vai, but to go to the lengths of stealing one of his guitars, that’s not a fan! A true fan would never! In fact if someone ever said to me check out this guitar or whatever that I stole from whoever, I’d turn that POS in! Hope Steve gets back all that was stolen!

Always wondered what pickups were in Girly and Cherry Blosom. Unfortunately no information listed here either.

Nice, now let’s see the Les Pauls 😕

Robert Wilson defo worth a look through!

Very cool. I sold a 7rb to Vai through his assistant Andy a few years ago. Wonder if it's still there. Miss that guitar.

Amazing collection!

I always wanted to get Jem with the pyramid inlays. Coolest thing I'd seen at the time.

Much better layout on mobile, Steve!

Gorgeous collection! Website is terrible to navigate on mobile, really takes away from what should be an awe-inspiring experience in any medium!

very nice i expected a few more strats

LET IT BLEED that's cool name sir

this is truly ''nowhere'' which is interesting 🧐

Not a bad position having Pamela Anderson just above you

Except....Steve Vai is the only star on the list still relevant.

Steve q pedazo de teñida te has puesto man!!!! Un exito lo tuyo!!

Harry Hamlin? Did he do a dramatic scene from Clash of the Titans?

Pamela Anderson in the 90s?

Isn't Pia jealous? :)

I had a crazy dream about Harry Hamlin during my flu induced coma. I was in a hotel on vacation and everywhere I turned Harry was there, but in a different outfit and scenario. At one point he was lying in front of the lobby fireplace. Just weird!

Sounds like a Big Crazy party!!

I nowdays No Longer Party anymore at all including drinking any Alcohol or do drugs or smoke any Marijuana at all anymore nowdays I'm very straight and sober and feel alot better

Black Cat is STILL one of my favorite guitar songs of all time.

What! You are in my country! You should do a concert in Tahiti.

A Vai sandwich with Pammy and Janet as the bread. Not sure if very jealous, or very, VERY concerned! :D

I want to meet with the sex giant

That's my favorite island!!

Is not it Stephen?

I've got dibs on Pamela....ha I like a ribeye with my bloody Mary, Kettle One, Whisky Willy's extreme mix and spicy V8, two light green inner celery stalks in a chilled glass with no ice..

Are you all going to be topless?

Way too interesting!

Steve you rule !!!

That must have been some party!😮

Didn't know you had Pamela Anderson on top of you!

Love Bloody Mary’s on Bora Bora! 🌴

You will meet Steve Vai!! WOW lucky guy!!😂 😉😎

Soooooooooo... excited for you!!!

If only the common Joe could afford this seminar. Sigh....

Great pic of some happy ppl doing what they love.

Always wanted a BOSS BD-2 Blues Drver

Guthrie Govan!! Scary talented guitar wizard!

Bernie Sanders all the way

One of these days I’ll make it to this. Please keep doing it. Maybe next year I can make it 😉 for now this will have to do.

See you there!

If you throw in Yngwie’s ruffled Pirate Shirt and some his jewelry - I’ll sign up ASAP

Quite the assortment of talent in that group

Guthrie Govan = GeNiO 🎹

Great guitar strings

Do a workshop in Australia and we're there.

One of Guthrie's regret was not having the opportunity to work with Zappa!

I'm on the left behind Kyle!!! Great times!!!

Wrong side of the pond for me, if you ever come to blighty though....

Look Jesus on the left side with Steve!?!

$2500 for 4 days.....What a rip-off!!!!!! I shouldn't have cut down my money tree last week. Greed...Greed....Greed!!!! Over-priced room and board.....what's the meals? Probably frozen dinners and burgers and hot dogs......All of us musicians who have been playing the guitar our whole life......myself(52 years) would love to attend but it costs too much. Try to get a loan and the bank would laugh at me. All of the featured guitarists are great guitarists but the price is GREEDY.

A lot of talent right there !

$3,000 a night... Do I get to record 💽 everything I play ▶️ doubt it... 😚😚🙄🙄🙄🙄🤓🤓🤓🤔🤔🤔 what happens when u play an can't record 💽 you usually forget... So everyone make sure u get your $ worth....

I wish I could attend

Is that Skunk Baxter?

You better write some songs with Satriani then 😂🤟

A shot from Vai #1

Wish I could be there, just lost my job
