Overall a great show.

My only real complaint was the inconsistancy of the sound. Sometimes it was perfect and sometimes it was muddy as hell.

I believe i remember reading that before the ibanez 777 prototypes came in Steve used some custom Tom Anderson guitars for the Skyscraper demos. One of the solos on the demo ended up being put onto the real recording but the solo in question slips my mind.

If i use a midi pedal board to switch from one sound to another will it change all the patches at once? or can i for instance be on a distorted sound on the triaxis then d...

Well if you want to clean up your overall sound make sure you are muting the strings you ARENT playing with both your right and left hands. You will probably have to start off playing very very slow to get the technique down at first then gradually build up to the tempo desired.

Slip Of The Tongue is one of the most listened albums i have. I used to listen to it every day for a period of like 9 months. I love how Vai layered all the guitars on that album, it sounds like a rock orchestra. I have pretty much figured out most of the songs on guitar except for "wings of the sto...

Flight of the bumble bee can be 2 different people as far as i know. IF there you can hear delay it is most likely Nuno Bettencourt's track from one of the early Extreme records called "flight of the wounded bumble bee". IF it is a live solo it is probably John Petrucci from the Dream Theater record...
