Re: Fire Strings

Fire Strings! I want it, too. I could remember, before the concert a famous weekly magazine wrote about Mr. Vai. They introduced him as "Heavy Metal man, as readers can easily see with his long hair" and quoted someone's word, said "he is very famous with shred and tricky guitar play like imitating ...

I didn't know Joe had dropped the case... I was hoping he would win.

Otamatone ; Funny instrument

This is product of Maywa Denki, Japanese performance artist. I don't know if he knows Steve Vai but at the end of this video, he plays Star Spangled Banner with Otamatone just like Mr. Vai's play... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qecPQ0FB-64" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; AYI, "Otama...

Re: Suggested Vocalists for Next Vai Album

My idea is, 1. Steve decides to start world tour. 2. He writes new songs which needs a big choir for live recording. 3. Fans join the choir in their own countries. 4. And we can find each name in the booklet of new CD. ...what do you think? I'll take voice lesson if it would come true! Anyway, I lov...

If you want, I could ask Kanda Shokai about where is the nearest agency to Illinois by e-mail. Their website is for Japan only.

Re: Is there a soul inside musical instruments?

Traditionally, Japanese thinks everything has their own soul. Old story says, a precious chinese lute didn't make sound when someone whom it didn't like touched. I can't play guitar but I love mine. Sometimes I feel so sorry to him because it's rare I touch and hug. I don't know he is correct or not...
