The_Grindfiend Though I will acknowledge that Vai has a distinctive sound, his songs typically sound to me like solos with hastily put together vamps underneath them. In other words, his solos often sound like they're there for their own sake.

That's odd, as I much prefer Satriani over Vai, if for no other reason than the fact that Satch is much more consistent than Vai. Vai has several songs that are very good, but the vast majority of his work, to me, is unoriginal, uninspired, and wholly uninteresting.
Why do you say that? I've never heard anyone sound quite like Vai, or Satch for that matter, though I enjoy Vai's work a little more...

Two hands31 Was the "young guy" Dave Weiner by any chance? Because him and Mr. MacAlpine are Steve Vai's backing guitarists. They're just there to make sure all the parts Vai isn't supposed to play get played.

G3 is just 3 guys: Vai, Satch, and a guest (this time Fripp). They're the stars of the show.

And I would have been interested in seeing Fripp. Maybe you don't like it, but playing a guitar synth is still playing a guitar.

JEM10th Well....as i was enjoying the G3 tour in Stockholm in JUNE, i must say that some things dissapointed me....

First off Mr Fripp, were hiding in stage side, just moaning some mysterious guitar synth overlays.....

Then i was expecting more from Mr MacAlpine, who just fiddled around on the keyboard and guested in a small contribution on guitar...he did not got the chance to show his quality at all...more from him!!!

Then there were some young guy at guitar, never heard of him, still he was good but definently NOT G3.....

G3 should be Satch, Vai and some quality guitarist who´earns his way into the guitar heaven.....then there should be Mike Kenealy, or they can forget it on keyboard.....

Mr Sheehan jumped around looking as he was waiting for David Lee Roth to enter any time

At last...there were no drum solo from Satch´s eminent drummer, as i expected


Just a thought...

It was good, but it could have been better!!!

ukwan imo, satch stole the night for me.. absolutly fantastic.

Vai was great but the "harmonic" on the tongue thing is a bit *** when he's just using a sustainer on harmonic mode.. i saw him change the switch whilst he did it. pffft.

other than that the Vai show was fantastic and what a performance, I find though in the Vai band everyones fighting for tonal bliss in that band so much so every instrument sounds too defined and clear?

where as the Satch band kinda mushes together a bit more and sounds more like a rock band.. which i enjoy.

steve used evo on several tunes in oslo

Just had to fill in here

And I am 100% sure steve used evo in several tunes in oslo june 20th , which was a sunday btw.

Very happy he played the chess tune "bangkok", that really did it to me, I thought satriani was boring though, he's doing his same tricks over and over again til boredom, but Vai is THE artist, he's just incredible.

Well Euph, I'm quite sure it was Evo.
I saw Thomas Nordegg carrying Evo around on stage before the show started. I also recall seing Evo being played by Vai in one or two songs before he finished the set with Flo.

Texter Like I said...he used EVO...and YAY!
06-22-2004 12:14 PM
Jeroenn Flo II is a regular VWH, with a sustainer.
Just like Evo II is a regular VWH..without a sustainer.. I don't think it was Evo II btw, on the pictures I saw, the body was discolord like Evo, but just way too little wood damage (as far as I could see). Evo II is hail white, not smoke brown like it has been sitting in Rich's living room for 10 years.. Maybe it just was evo....

Oh, btw...Euro solo tour planned next year.
06-22-2004 12:06 PM
Gharedd I didn't know there was a FloII. Is it identical to Flo (is it actually a floral painted white) or is it called that just 'cause it has a sustainer. G3 is on tour here, and I'm going to miss it I hope to see vai if/when he tours his new album ..Maybe I will never see the REAL Evo and Flo.
