Re: new interview with Steve Vai

Steve says things that I myself have thought of or have realized, sometimes it shocks me. It's good to have at least one artist on earth who will be open about their problems and solutions.

I'm not sure about the whole "vibrations" thing though. That seems a bit Pavlovian.

I hear you. I think the hard part is that we have to use words to describe things/experiences, it's limiting. For example, I could type about "Strawberry" for a long time, how it looks, what it feels like, it's taste, but if instead I just tossed you a strawberry and you bite into it, then you know right away.

Steve was tackling some pretty deep teachings that come straight out of the Zen meditation school. He is limited by words in what he can express, but I thought he did a great job at pointing in the direction of the experience.
