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 ]

Vaideology=the study of becoming Steve Vai

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.

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

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..

Sold out in the UK

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

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.

Keep it in stock, I'll have the money eventually! LOL

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😊

Ordering mine next week.

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

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

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

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

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 👍👍

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

You are the best ever Steve.

Do you plan Bulgarian translation?🇺🇸➡️🇧🇬

Keep it in stock Steve, I will Be buying soon!!

Looking forward to reading it👍

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

Mine is on the way ✌️ Curious how it will change my playing. Expectations are high :-)

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.

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.

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

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?

Nice, now let’s see the Les Pauls 😕

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 can't post comments despite being logged in.

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

Not a bad position having Pamela Anderson just above you

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

I'm waiting of my signed cd and signed vinyl . I paid 200 dollars to Pledge ....Generation Axe !

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

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

Pamela Anderson in the 90s?

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

Isn't Pia jealous? :)

Sounds like a Big Crazy party!!

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.

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

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

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!

I want to meet with the sex giant

That's my favorite island!!

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!!😂 😉😎
