My Steve Vai "Die to Live" guitar cover! Dimarzios, EVH 5150 iii, and my dumb face.

Just made this one for you all today! One of the only Vai songs (... mostly) playable sans whammy bar! I have a couple guitars with trems that you all have seen in my other videos, but i have one bar that both of them share... and it broke! So for now i am without tremolo. Oh well.
It's not totally perfect, but you know what? It's a Steve Vai song! Hahaha... I'd like to know more about which guitar he recorded this with; it seems near impossible to get the intonation on any guitar i've used to match up through the whole song. I know Vai has used stuff like the Buzz Feiten intonation system, so maybe that's the deal. I don't know.
I am playing my custom mahogany Ibanez RG7. This one has the mighty Dimarzio D Activator Neck model in the bridge position (amazing pickup in a dark guitar) and the Dimarzio Liquifire in the neck. The middle single, a Rio Grande, isn't even wired up. Playing through my new EVH 5150 iii on the lead channel. Thanks for watching!

Thumbs up Re: My Steve Vai "Die to Live" guitar cover! Dimarzios, EVH 5150 iii, and my dumb fac

Great playing dude!

Very well done. I dig on the tone you captured there, and your timing is great.

This is one of my favorite Vai tunes, I'd love to own it someday as well.
