it was good....technically, he did seem a little overworked by it though. I would like to have heard it without the "death organ" in the background. I'll give the guy props for it but I don't really understand why so much would be made over anybody else on Vai's site, theres something disrespectful ...

I use a piece of wood that i put under the bridge made especially for when i change the strings. It helps keep the bridge level during the process. As far as adding springs to the bridge claw, I've never attempted it but it doesn't sound to hard. Like I said I don't really like nothing about these s...

Problem w/my Ibanez.......

To anyone who can explain why my guitar has done what's it's done. I have strung my guitar 3 or 4 times now and each time I get a little quicker and more efficient at it. Before this guitar I had never messed with or had one with a floyd tremolo system on it so I've been learning alot about it. The ...

ok, what does "not universal in a way" mean anyway? i'm not poking fun i'm just really curious. I think that phrase is the key to unlocking this riddle. Exactly why do you say that he has no energy? If you view anything steve has done on film, with the exception of the nelly furtado thing, and even ...

mines got to be "the audience is listening", it was the first song that i had ever heard and the one that started me on my Vai journey. But alas, this is kind of like picking a favorite Led Zeppelin song or any other of the thousands of groups out there, it's almost impossible. Especially with someo...

this has become really silly, you guy's need to spend more time playing your guitars than arguing amongst each other like this. I wouldn't blame steve in the least for not replying to this bullshit, would you? If you had a website and forums set up so fan's, players, musician's and friends could com...
