Steve Vai: recommendation

hello,

I have never heard anything from him...
I dont have much time unfortunately to go through all his cds.

could you please give me some advice on what to listen from him?
I really like satriani: the melodies, the solos etcetc

I dont really know what to expect from S.Vai.

(I don't know why I have the idea of a guy who's showing his skills more than emotions when playing the guitar...)


thanks
A.

nah I say get the Infinite Steve Vai, it's like the best of and there are many songs. PAW and Fire Garden are great but I definitly suggest the Inf Steve Vai to get a good dose of different albums.

Re: Steve Vai: recommendation

I have to go with PaW as well. It should be issued with your first guitar.

Re: Steve Vai: recommendation

I don't think I could name a bad Vai song.

Personally, I'd start with Alive in an Ultra world, then Real Illusions. But I'm wierd.. P&W doesn't really give you his current sound at all, and personally (and this is just my opinion) his newer stuff is vastly superior.

Just my 2 cents...

Alien Love Secrets is an awesome Vai album.

Juice and Die to Live on that CD are awesome tracks.

Nah, Vai's definitely one of the better speed guitarists in terms of actually writing and recording good music. He's pretty experimental.

I recommend you get "The Infinite Steve Vai: An Anthology". If you like what you hear, get more of his stuff from there.
