"Answers" is the answer... DANG that was fun

Before heading to bed, I plugged in my beloved Jade GMC, found a decent setting for a distorted lead on GuitarPort, loaded up "Answers" and just started wailing with Steve. I sure as hell didn't get it right down to the milisecond, but I was pretty close (except for that crazy delayed chord section in the middle of the solo which I'm still learning).

It was therapeutic... I couldn't help but just burst into a grin halfway through until the end. I recommend if you're having a bad day to give it a try...

I know what you mean - every day before work I blast through Hand On Heart and Dyin' Day.

I was in heaven the first time I was able to play The Riddle on my seven-string, instead of having to use the whammy to hit the lowest notes on a sixer. However, learning the song that way gave me kickass bar technique. Hehe.

I actually used a custom tone on that... I played along with the MP3 file. Yeah, Vai needs to get some tracks / lessons in there baaad... heck, they got Charlie Christian stuff and Satch stuff too!

Yeah, I do that often. I don't have a guitar port, but I just plug into my computer and belt out "Love of God" or something.

The guitar port sounds suprisingly awesome!! I hvaent played my duel recto half-stack since I bought it in january. I think it is worth the $150 bucks just for the tones. I can nail vai's tone to a t!!

Yeah, everytime i plug in the guitar, i will without fail play something of steve's. Be it the Boy From Seattle, or Die to Live. If i were to practice my licks or speed, i would do that short run at the end of 'Answers' during the G3 concert, with the multiple finger tapping run. Simply gorgeous.
