Vai's 10 Hour Workout

It was in an old issue of Guitar World. There is a book in print now called "Guitar World Presents Private Lessons" which includes it. I got my copy from Music Dispatch.

The 10 Hour Workout is killer. I definitely recommend it.

It's literally a 10 hour thing, right?

Post soon, I only have a week before school starts, and I have to move from 6 hours to 2 or 3. It'd be great if I could get 50 hours of guitar between now and then.

Well if you did a hack job it wouldn't turn out to be 10 hours. :silly: but Steve practiced his stuff for 10 hours. it's in the text, how long he actually practiced it.

I have it scanned and will post tonight.

Just to keep you guys posted, I'm fixing up the scans now. (Nothing's perfect, you know. ) If they're not up tonight (likely, because I have to work tomorrow), I will try my best to upload them by 8PM tomorrow.

See ya!
-Justin

EDIT: Last post before I sign off for tonight. Report on quality of the scans: they're going to be big on the screen but should print well. Text is very sharp; however the music notation/tab did not come out quite so awesomely. I can't seem to correct this. Anywho, like I said, they are going to be very big pictures (file size of the first one I tested - 233K at super low quality JPG) but my reason for keeping them big (screen-wise, not file-size-wize) is that, at least some detail is preserved for printing (which I assume you will all print this out, right?) and for the music/tab parts that came out mediocre, you can zoom in enough on the screen and still be able to make out the notes.

Hope my rambling made sense. Good night!

I would think if a person plays for ten or more hours a day, he or she would develop physical problems from overuse of the muscles and tendons. *Is this true? How does people like Via practice for such long amounts of time without developing problems? *I know when I tried to play for six hours a day, I couldn't due it for to long without feeling overworked.

Think of it like running, JT. *You probably couldn't go out and run 15 miles right now. *But there are people who do! *The point is, like any kind of muscular activity, you need to work up to that sort of time. *I'm up to about 6/7 hours a day, but it took me 11 years to get here.

Absolutely, eventually it comes crashing down. I think this 10-hr stuff was 'marketing lingo' personally and hype. That said, i'm sure Steve did spend allday WITH a guitar... maybe transcribing, experimenting, meditating and sleeping with it.. but certainly not doing "10-hr workouts" every day for months. Its imposible even for a teenager... glen

You're wrong about that one Jemsite. I've done 6 hours and I know a guy who's done 9-13 hour days one summer.

I understand that you can't get up to 10 hours right away, but you probably have to work a little for it. *Again, like running. *I run a lot, and I probably could go run 15 miles, but still, I'd have to train to make it to that distance. *I can't go out and run 15 miles after sitting at home for 3 weeks doing nothing. *Maybe some people are just dedicated enough to look past any kind of pain they endure.
