March guitar challenge track?

Any ideas for a good backing track for the March guitar challenge?

Since we went basic and bluesy for last month, lets try to select a cool modal track for the shredders.

Please post any suggestions!!

Aw man the Vai track is clearly the best for me, and my second would be the Gilmour track.

I'm a Vai fanboy, and the Vai-ish backing track does have some convincingly Vai-ish moments... so the choice is clear for me

I'm good with the Vai track... although it will take me out of my comfort zone. Gotta learn new stuff some time, eh?

I think Kyle Am I will like it. He's a Vai fan... Shall we do it??

Its official... track is posted!! Soon to be stickied.

Anyone other than me notice the Vai track is described as 100 bpm but feels more like 50 bpm? My time keeping foot says 50... I guess it's a moot point anyway. Just wondering aloud.
