I think it's time that Steve got some love back from his fans.

How about holding a contest at Vai.com where members can post a song, riff, solo - whatever - dedicated to or inspired by Steve.

Mods and the big guy can judge. Winner gets respect 8).

:D ?

I'd consider it if the winner got money/gold/riches. I have enough respect. Good idea though.

Good idea. Although I don't think there should be a money-orientated prize for the winner. I think if there was to be a prize, it should either be something like some Vai merchandise or a spot on the site or something.

Or, you know, have Steve play the song on tour or to you privately :lol:

Or just a special message from steve or the chance to meet him :lol:

Fine, enough dreaming, I'll settle for a Legacy or a JEM :P

Screw money.

A simple "whoa.. cool song" from Steve would be wayyyyyy more than enough 8) .

Have you actually ever read what we say about Steve? There's love dripping from our every pore, for Stevie and his music! Besides, " Treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen" :wink:

That sounds like an awsome idea for a contest,what if the winner got a call from steve and got to chat with him for 5-10 minutes or something.

If Steve calls my house, my mom will probably think it's a telemarketer and just hang up on him.

:lol:

Do you think we should have a theme/concept here or just compose whatever comes to mind?

dudes you can give up the hope of steve calling... :P

If there should be a contest like this, it should be amongst the vai members.... we shouldn't drag steve along, we should be happy if he just listens to the winner song.

So yeah, I think the respect of winning is enough for me, eh, I mean... ehm!, I mean, eh, like, yeah the one who wins... :oops:

This should also be arranged in the "General Music" forum, not here.

my $0.02:

1. One piece (but it could be anything -- from a lick to a full scale symphony :shock: )

2. 10-12 minutes max sound decent?

3. I doubt Steve has time to listen to so many tracks.. so.. poll it :D !
