Most people that steal it aren't putting the songs on blank discs, they're putting it on mp3 players. I don't want to pay a tax on blank discs to cover someone else's theft when I use them to copy music I paid for. I would guess that most people use blank discs for legitimate reasons and are theref...

Ah, the always interesting debate on dowloading music. First of all, downloading music thru P2P is not illegal in the entire world. Where I live it's legal. I'm allowed to download a copy of music or a movie, as long I don't give it to others. So it's not considered stealing. The artists will be co...

Steve Vai and Graham Bonnet Collaboration?

I've just recently been listening a lot to 'Disturbing the Piece' - the Alcatrazz album with Vai. It's an incredibly good record. I've also just been reading an interview with Graham Bonnet - and he has nothing but praise for Steve. ( http://www.rocknrolluniverse.com/rocknrolluniverse_053.htm - this...

I thought I'd share this interesting Vai quote as it seems to round the topic off nicely: "I believe it's a law of nature that every person is different, with a unique capacity for self-expression. As a result, we all have the ability to be unique in the way we express ourselves musically. A lot of ...

Hope that helps! :roll: :roll: Yes. It does. Hopefully as much as your monetary assessment of music quality helps you. 'Cuz like... everybody knows if you make a lot of money and win a lot of grammies then you're a music god -- the more money you make the greater your music is. It's a mathmatecally...

In closing, all I'm trying to say is: give Nelly a little more respect. She's been more successful (in music) than all of you put together, and to suggest she is beneath Steve is quite frankly, pathetic. There is no 'above' or 'beneath' in music. [/color] Wow... this thread didn't stay dead. It mes...

Hmmm... I think I am going to have a rant on this one... {sorry!} I can't believe how much stick Nelly gets for this performance; not just here but on the YouTube video too. It really does annoy me - and it seems to be mostly Vai fans. A lot seem to imply that Steve is going beneath himself in playi...

Thanks Anil. Yep - I still plan to go that route but like you say, studying computer science would make a lot more sense. I've heard a lot of good things about Cambridge too - good teachers certainly help! I think most of it is down to determination, though. Both friends I have that are working as ...

Sounds like a brilliant idea. You'll probably have more time to study as people will come to you to learn. Make sure you buy a copy of Tony Buzan's books 'Use Your Head'. Also, don't forget your pals on this board-its good to post here. Hey Anil. Yep - I think muppet sums me up! I could do with you...

I love this album too! I still think I prefer Paul when he sings too - but my favourite Gilbert instrumental is 'Mount Fuji Christmas'. It's the Japanese bonus track on Merry Axemas. If you haven't heard it you should defo check it out!

Thanks everyone for your advice - very much appreciated. This is going to be my last post on here for quite a while (100th post is a good place to stop - right?!). I'm just gonna put my head down for the next few years and study, study, study! You may think it sacrilege - I have sold my only guitar...

lol the star of the solo in it is "standard satch".. heard it 100s of times on his records.. oh dear :? That's unfair. There are lots of Vai solos which follow the exact same pattern or technique, but few people criticise Steve for that. Agreed. Every guitar player has their safety net and Steve is...
