This came up in another thread where a member asked me what I could possibly be doing to break a whammy bar a year- here you go

I'm sparse with my trem bar use I guess."
The most abuse is usually on the sustainer guitar where I get out the Vai induced antics, like karate chopping, smashing, windmilling, and propulsions, rocket propelled flutters, Improvised Exposive Divebombs (also known as an IED for short), Electro- Magnetic Pull-ups (sustainer induced pulling up on the bar, for short called an EMP)"
I took this video as a joke a few months ago for some of my friends who hate both steve Vai and pop music (especially the electronic stuff). While I have a certain enjoyment for electronic music (because i have synesthesia and can actually see the various sounds as colors effects and textures) for some reason the sheer horribleness and unoriginality of the songs lyrics pissed me off.
So I made this, which is an accurate depiction or *sometimes* what can happen when I'm mentally in the mood to work out but want to play the guitar instead
"I heard this horrible song on the radio or something and actually heard some kind of sustainer induced abuse of the laws of magnetics to go along with it. I decided to make it 1000% worse than the original song completely for fun. I'm sorry you had to hear this. "
