That every guitarist on this board wants to be a Steve Vai clone ??
I find it rather sad that a guitarist would put in 100s of hrs practice just
to sound just like Vai/Satriani/malmsteen or whoever.
No disrespect intended to anyone...BUT..for christs sake be original.
Im tired of hearing bad versions of FTLOG for the 300th time.

Id rather hear something original that was decently played than a perfect cover of xx


ok rant over :roll: :wink:

I'm a bass player. I'm a jazz performance major at UofM. I hate Vai's bass players, I used to play guitar and never sounded anything like Vai. I dig this forum because I used to be really into Vai, I still dig him, and it's a good natured forum. You made an unfair generalization about this whole board. Listen to my band and tell me if it sounds like Vai.

Rant Over.

ok..you have a fair point .
what i should have said is 'most players' who post songs on the showcase forums.

Anywhere you go, any discipline you investigate will show that "most" of the people within a particular field are ripping off the talented few...it has nothing to do with Steve Vai, it's human nature.

yeh, tho i do kinda get the point, i try to dig out the original and interesting songs on the showcase forums, but there are so many covers of FTLOG on there its ridiculous lol

notthat i dont think that it is a good idea to learn otehr peoples songs, and the players are often very talented, but i like more original stuff

like gary salad lol

and some guy i just looked at, original songs
