Re: Vai.com News | Pre-order the DVD & CD, Get A Bonus Album Dow

Will a Blu-ray disc play in my current DVD player? Or do I gotta up-grade to a Blu-ray machine?

Re: Charisma

None of us here (that I'm aware of) ever saw him (Hendrix) with our own eyes so I think it's impossible to fully appreciate the effect his performance had on an audience. Uh . . . I doth protest . . . I "saw" Jimi at the Hollywood Bowl and the Inglewood Forum (both in LA) back in his day . . . Both...

Re: Steve Vai´s creative output

MI.....All I can say is there's nothing like it. It is hands down the greatest school I could ever dream of attending. I love it. the staff has only the best musicians teaching here and the atmosphere is the most chill you've ever experienced. The one thing I absolutely love about MI is that it's n...

A great reverb "surf" tune from back in the 60's. Recorded at Abby Road studios of all places.

Re: Seven String Guitar ???

Steve uses 7-string guitars more than people think. "Under It All" was performed on a 7-string. Plus he has recently recorded with one (for a little something on the DVD), and I'm sure they will also appear on the new album. With regards to touring: due to logistics, Steve brings only the guitars he...

Re: Alien Guitar Secrets Masterclass FAQ

Hello Mikey

Can Steve recommend an author or book title on the “spiritual” topics he speaks of in the Alien Secrets Master Class?

Thanks for a great class . . . . let’s have another one in Southern Ca ASAP.
