Damn right man! get that video!
Get that paul gilbert video. sequences and techniques II...thats what got me upto speed... and that demented yngwie arrpeggio video, i remember first seeing that video, "now this is that lick, slow" SLOW>?! SLOW>!?! that guy doesnt know the meaning of the word...but yes, enough of that. Im telling you, plenty of people can play that kinda thing, it takes lots of ambition and practise thats all, and if you got a jem its easy on that nice thin neck...cheaper still a PGM300 is nice and i just got myself a PGM tenth...sustain is sweet.... so yeah, gilbert rules, anyone can play like vai can... (runs and hides) and yeah Rock on, practice, you can do it!
