I just viewed the Real Illusions video trailer and I have to say... I consider myself extremely lucky to be around to bear witness to this phenomenon we all know and love as "Steve Vai"...
Just imagine waking up tomorrow...and the guitar God of the day is Duane Eddy (no disrespect to Duane...my father loves his stuff...innovative...for the times...but EEEeegads)
...and now as I sit here in my basement, Cakewalk up and running, staring at my guitar, trying to coax from it sounds that evoke emotion (other than sheer frustration), I re-load the Real Illusions video trailer and am reminded how the guitar can make you feel: sad, angry, scared, happy, liberated, I realize how lucky I am...it's a great time to be alive!!!
