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 ]

Hello Steve.......I 'm your cousin from Italy

Yes...i remeber seeing you in iceland.. I missed your last show here in Reykjavik though. But loved your show with White snake back in the day 😎

A band that bathes together....

This is awesome! Story of Light Tour was wonderful!💫

I was the 666th liker, yay!

Looks there was a serious Alien Water Kiss involved...hee hee.

Been there, done that😉. Saw that tour and it was amazing🎸🎸🎸

Love that place. Must have gone there at least a dozen times when I spent a summer in Iceland when I was a youngin. I think it's time that I go back!

Great tour Mr. Vai. Thanks for bringing it to Atlanta, Ga. USA

I was there two years ago.

Should we be offended for ‘whiteface’ lol.

Judging by how red their faces are, I'd say the sunblock came a day too late. 😂

Awesome guy's !! Cool place men !! 👍 Keep on Rocking !

Looks like Shrooms were involved. 🤪 Looks like a great time!

I saw you guys twice on that tour.

That's a little too much sunscreen guys! lol

I had ever been there too. Nice !

Humming Joe Satriani's Surfin with an Alien..

Think you may have overdone it with the shaving cream.

No running water, no problem!

Thanks for sharing these candid moments with us fans Steve!

This might sound weird. It even sounds weird when I say it..... but I'd love to be in a hot spring with that group of gentlemen.

Oh my.... i was there years ago and I never wanted to get out...

Fuaaaaa... Steve el grone q esta al lado tuyo parece un mono de la isla galapagos!!!!! Congratulations men!!

Was the water cold?

Vaideology=the study of becoming Steve Vai

It's your fault Steve... I've decided to ditch tabs and learn old-school

Yes but those of us at Vai Academy got it first !!👍🏻

Written music is a beautiful thing! 🎵

Waiting patiently in Canada for the book to be released.

Sold out in the UK

Just ordered a copy!! Thanks Steve!!

Finally got my copy 2 days ago after a 3 week wait.. I bought it just out of curiosity to see how well Steve Vai simplifies his vast knowledge..

Just picked mine up today Steve Vai. Some very interesting stuff for me to work on. Many thanks

Thank You Steve...I had many gaps in my theory from college 20 years ago. Vaideology is the shot in the arm I needed to start relearning my theory.

Received a copy this week. Beautifully laid out and illustrated. There's something in there about music too, which is nice.

Malmsteen eats it up you deserve to eat it up 2! You are still surprising after all these years! That's the highest compliment I can think of. Thanks for all you have shared😊

Just picked up the one copy on Amazon. Very excited :D Thank You, Steve :)

Ordering mine next week.

Mine arrived yesterday. Nicely laid out and thought out, with just the right touch of "Vai-isms". Thx for doing this, Steve!

Been waiting... ordered it 2 weeks ago, hasn’t shipped yet. C’mon Hal Leonard!

All is at the Vai Academy 4.0 got it 1 year before it came out. We feel special. But we'll still buy the book too.

Just got mine two days ago 👍👍

Started reading it....completely lost. HELP!!!

STILL WAITING FOR MY BOOK FROM THE STEVE VAI MERCH SHOP. 🤗

Looking forward to reading it👍

Do you plan Bulgarian translation?🇺🇸➡️🇧🇬

A great Book that I must add to my collection 😁

You are the best ever Steve.

I've ordered mine here in Perth Western Australia, can't WAIT to get the Master's Text! 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

We just completed a comprehensive library on www.vai.com/guitars of all of the guitars that Steve has ever owned! It contains a wealth of new information. You can comment on there as well, and Steve will be checking it out periodically and replying when possible. Help us find missing and stolen guitars! - The Vai Alliance ... See MoreSee Less

Can't believe vai.com and jemsite is over 20 years old!! Still remembered those days surfing with 28.8kbps modem waiting for those guitar pics to finish loading!!

These aren't yours Steve.

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

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.

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

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

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

As a Canadian and someone who loves the guitars that Robert at Godin Guitars (OFFICIAL) makes, it's awesome that you have a Glissentar in your collection. And it's good that Dweezil has a good taste in guitars too.

Nice, now let’s see the Les Pauls 😕

400 guitars and no Jem PMC???? waaat?

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.

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

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

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?

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

blue steel and let it bleed please

the photos aren't clickable? We cant zoom in? Yes im complaining sorry.. :/ But Im sure you have an intern willing to update your site! ;)

Referring to EVO's crack... why does Thomas Nordegg not do a wood substitution ? If made from the pickup cavity and the neck pocket no one would even see this ? And, combined with injections of thinned CA glue / Titebond from the upper horn following the crack, should do the rest of the trick. The injections would be the first thing on the agenda. I do not think, tonality would change enough to be recognized, but EVO would be usable at least in the studio... Perhaps, a master builder like Dan Erlewine could help, as he has a lot of experience with crazy damages like this.

the uvmc that was on the cover of p&w and given to thomas mcrocklin isnt anywhere on the site. why not?

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

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!

Some of the guitar is "perhaps" for sale... How to know which one is and how to make an offer??

I have a pink pickups that comes from FLO, I bought it on Ebay to a former guitar tech

I only just bought my second Ibanez, but that's in the space of 3 months ....

very nice i expected a few more strats
