Fuck all of you guys. Vai would never blow eddie out of the water. vai was just another eddie wannabe up until about 1990 or something. And i hate all this stupid theory shit he has induldged himself in. Eddie could play like vai, but why whould he want to? And vai will never come close to what eddi...

i think it is kind of pointless to say who is better. maybe who do you like better, is a better statement. I prefer eddie, but i think they are both at the very top, but they play differently with unique styles.

Oh yeah I forgot I AM an idiot. You can do harmonics and whammy bar tricks on a keyboard can't you ? All those harmonics, bended notes, dive bombs and vibrato Steve does by rotating his fingers while playing, make it sound EXACTLY like someone pressing a white key on an electronic instrument. Jesus...

Wow , your a fucking idiot. Eddie would definaitley hold his own against vai. In fact i think eddie is better, because his playing actually sounds like a guitar.

It just keeps going...and going...notes going by. But it doesnt MEAN anything. Meanwhile someone out there just played 1 note, that...
