A slight nitpick correction on Steve Vai's Tremolo setup.

I don't mean to be picky or anything, but after reading elsewhere on this Website where it said that in order to set up a Floyd like Steve Vai has on his guitars, to set it so that the G string pulls up a fourth from G to C . I know this is probably gonna elicit some "no duhs" from some people(Since most folks 'round this site probably already know this anyway, but I thought I'd mention it just for the heck of it.), but actually, I read in a Guitar For The Practicing Musician interview with him years ago that he goes one better & has it set up so that it pulls a fifth from G to D. Okay, you can go ahead & crucify me for this now! J/K :P Anyway, just thought it was worth a mention. Laters!
