How does Vai not break strings?
I didn't know where to put this, so sorry if it needs to be moved. Anyways, I have been wondering how the hell Vai and Satch don't break strings regularly in concert. I have seen a couple of vids of their concerts and I haven't seen them break a single string. If I abused my trem like Vai does, i break the high e string in a second. Yngwie too, how does he constantly bend his high e up to the 24th from the 21st fret, and not break a string? I consider myself to have good technique, but is it something about their technique? (by the way, my jem seems to be in perfect shape, I am 99% sure it is not something like a burr or whatever.)
