All About Vai's FLO- video

At the Vai camp I had access to vais guitars FLO and FLO III. I have many stories and will detail then at a later time.

All about FLO http://youtu.be/9aD1KfSMUSE

Me actually playing FLO III (I have lots of videos of this). http://youtu.be/Pk5hkkig978

Steve had gotten done jamming with us (I played building the church with him) and he handed his guitar off to me and went into the audience to watch us. I just improvised the solo because I didn't even know the song they were playing lol. Jeremy colson on drums and Philip bynoe on bass

Lol no I knew the song, I yet didn't know how to play it. But I figured out the key and just played little fills

His rig was amazing. Best sounding thing I've ever played through. People say he dosent use much gain- he only had the amp switching between clean and overdrive- not even the high gain channel because he dosent use it. The overdrive channel was very gainy even without the distortion pedal.

Re: All About Vai's FLO- video

What is his action like?

Does he boost the od channel with the jemini green channel for he gain?

Re: All About Vai's FLO- video

Ok so Thomas Nordegg said his action was as low as he could get it with no buzz, which is about 1.5mm on the high e. I consider this medium. The guitars felt ABSOLUTLEY amazing, the action was great and everything balanced and tight.

To be honest, he had a special switcher that switched only between the clean channel and the second channel (the second channel was enough gain as it is, and they're the exact circuitry as the L1 which is his favorite) and he never used the third. So yes he did turn the Jemini green side on for solos and stuff, but it really was just for extra smoothness of tone and a little more gain.

Re: All About Vai's FLO- video

That is so cool that he let you guys play his guitars and even jammed with you. He must be a pretty good guy.

Sounds like you had a blast! Thanks for the videos... For not being familiar with the song you did great. Hey Joe is one of only two songs I ever played on stage... lol. (Ramblin Man was the other)

I jammed Red House in Vai's presence. Didn't know it at all, but had fun. Looks like you are having a great time!
