I have been detaching myself from Ego playing though. This is a medieval concept. By this I mean playing while not feeling emotions and not getting euphoric about it, yet trying to convey certain ideas. Wow! Now THAT is a style different from the modern day guitar playing we normally hear. As for m...

Ya, but no sense of telling him to go to another website when you can simply tell him the answer haha. Your guitar may have come with a pouch of tools, one with the size to fit the allen keys at the start of the neck. Since you broke the strings however, I suggest you go to your local guitar shop an...

Ya know, I think every single Vai song you don't hear about alot. It's actually a shame since most of his songs are the best I've heard in their genre. If you are talking among Vai fans, I would have to say: 1. Salamanders in the Sun 2. Warm Regards 3. Gentle Ways 4. Brother (Vai sounds like Mr. Mer...

Nope, because I once had two of the same guitars (was replacing them through online ordering), and I noticed the noise with the new one I received and changed arms and it still occurred. I used both arms on my old one and it didn't however. I'm guessing it has to do with the spring of the tremolo br...

I think most if not all of his albums are great, but it does seem like he adds the same songs in too much for the proceding albums, but maybe it's just me. I loved Alien Love Secrets AND Passion and Warfare the must though.

Acquired taste

I just received the new Vai album and ya' know, listening to the Vai orchestral pieces in his Shadows & Sparks album, I think I've acquired a taste for it. Now, I never really used to like orchestral pieces at all besides the Lotus Feet and For The Love Of God recordings with the Metropole Orchestra...

Few questions on the Edge Pro

Hey guys, I was wondering 2 things about the Edge Pro (as I have one), so here they are: 1. My tremolo arm never locks at a fixed position or direction, instead it just falls to the bottom of the guitar.. I think you have to adjust something, but what? 2. When I rotate the arm, it will SOMETIMES mak...

Aren't the guitars with the Steve Vai inlay at the 24th fret fake? How much did you pay for it, and are you getting your money back?

Pickup change

Hey guys, about a month ago I bought an RG1570 (which is an AMAZING guitar) but there are a few things that could be done to make this guitar so much better. I love everything about it but the sound is kinda low, tapping and low pitch notes come out sounding muddy.. I want to upgrade the bridge posi...
