Thanks to Steve Morse for making this possible.

But but, why not do like Satch and play an Ibanez tele...

Re: If Steve Vai and Stevei Ray......

I'm with Elcid on this one, if this impresses you I'd suggest you look into Michael Angelo Batio.

Just want to clarify that my comment is based on the first video posted, the video in post 7 is WAY more impressive.

I actually like MAB a lot too........ but for me it's never been about "note count". I'm not such a big fan of Yngwie or Herman Li, although I have a ton of respect for them. For me, There also needs to be some "feeling" or "groove" to the playing.

When Andy play's "cry for you" or "electric gypsy" he sounds like a completely different player......... he has a VERY wide repertoire, which is what I respect the most from any player............ but that's just me.

Re: If Steve Vai and Stevei Ray......

"cry for you" and "electric gypsy" are his highlights for me! great songs along with "gone 11/09"!

Re: If Steve Vai and Stevei Ray......

He's actually been playing that song since the Danger Danger days when it was part of his solo. He's much more into writing great songs and playing with amazing feel and KILLER tone than just shredding these days (don't care for the tone in this video tho...). But it's still one my favorites. Check out the version on "That Was Then, This is Now." The best take on that song, in my opinion.
