Well, my parents are payin for it, not me. But, they wont spend money on gear for me....and it looks like a great oppurtunity; and it would look great on a college application: something I really need to start worrying about.

No whammy pedal, just a sustainer.

I can't listen to the clips at the moment due to dial up internet and bad computer. But...You guys are all criticizing him saying there's other 14 year olds better...but remember this.....Satriani started at age 14......Just thought I'd throw that out.

If the fretboard is made of standard fretboard wood (other than ebony), you can't. It would completely rob the guitar of its sustain. You need either ebony or some even denser material. I've heard of graphite being used for this purpose.

K'm Pee Du We. When I saw him play that live and hit every stingle note , my jaw hit the floor. Blue Powder as well, although I have yet to see that live, it's the Bass solos I love in that song. Jibboom used to, but now that I can play it, it doesnt. :? Funny how that works all the amazement of a s...

Burning down the mountain is fairly easy. Die to Live isnt bad. Frank is great, but you gotta have GREAT control of the FR trem for the solo.

In a guitar world interview, he said that he hits a pinch harmonic on the open G and with his fretting hand, he very quickly dives the bar down and slowly brings it back up. Works for me.

Hey, I feel dumb asking this, but what's the name of the song they did towards the end of the acoustic set? They all sang. Steve prefaced it as something like "The silliest love song ever" or somethin like that. Whats the name of that tune?
