I fail to see how the original post constitutes such a response from Mikey. Clearly the creator of the post as a member of the Steve Vai forums is entitled to state his opinion (even if it is highly unoriginal). I see the only problem that this post could possibly create is a few extra kilobytes of ...

Steve Vai is a musician that has impacted other musicians through his originality and facility on the electric guitar. Since Beethoven is also a musician that impacted (immeasurably more then Mr vai) comparisons are easily drawn. What is wrong with making a darn comparison with something else. We ex...

Hmm. Has anyone actually tried to tounge the guitar like steve with his Ibanez jem and fernandez sustainer? I think its possible with just that and no wammy bar or pedal bar. My theory. IF you get a slide you can actually play notes beyond the fret board very simply. I dont see why steve vai cant ge...

Steve's sweeps always follow a rather simmilar pattern. He isnt really known for going outside his own box sweep wise on a jam because he will probibly screw up. If you want a tab for those sweeps look at tabs for Tender Surrender, The Audience is listening. You will find steves most common sweeps i...

my friend hit a whopping 2 notes a second. if you dont practice speed you actually lose it and your playing becomes sloppy. Since i doubt steve spends all his time shredding his speed has increased and decreased over his carear. We can all agree that he has played some extraodinary fast licks. tende...

Yes i know my post is not to do with perfect pitch.

Actually i have a friend who wants me to get into dream theater. So i have listened to quite a bit (reluctantly) I think dream theater as a whole is a very skilled band but they are just far to Computer "power tab" for me.
