Was he talking about Whitesnake? I would imagine that he meant writing new and better harmony parts.

That's a good imagination.

As Ancestor said. Harmony parts, guitar/vocal/bass.
Re-arranging would involve changing the/some chords.

"reharmonizing" refers to playing different chords under the same melody. Commonly used in Jazz and in dance remixes. I heard a new Deborah Cox remix of a Phil Collins song over the weekend...totally reharm'd.

The difference is that Dance remixes usually simplify the original changes while Jazz reharm make the chords more colorful and/or complex.

Hope this helps.

That's interesting. I'd love to know what Vai's comment was in reference to.

He may have been. At the very least, Vai was playing inversions on his rhythm parts on the WS tour. Does that count?

Yup, changing the inversions counts as reharmonising.
