    I've been lurking on these boards for a looong while. It occured to me earlier that I had never listened to a Steve Vai song. Yeah, blasphemous I know. I downloaded Bad Horsie. It's been on repeat for about an hour and a half. Dear god, I love it. Any more recommendations?

    I happen to actually know this guy, Thom Mathews, he's got a song called "Conquered and Swept Away" that blows my mind in some crazy @ss cosmic melodic way. Here is the link to his myspace please listen to the conqured song, it is FN killer. Let me know what you guys think, maybe pick up his...

    I just drove 52 miles one way to buy this album. Amazing, Fun, and more than I expected. And I'm only on the first disc! Thank you Steve Vai! I felt like a total dweeb waiting this morning to be the first to buy it. But is worth it. Tuggey

    Is Steve Vai a Freemason? The Pyramid logo schemes with the disappearing pyramid, pyramid with the eye, etc are too close to actual Freemason symbolism to be coincidence. The pyramid with the eye is also linked to the Anti-Christ, hence, why Tolkien made an allegory to it with Sarumon's one eye...

    From the Vai Newsletter: Hi Folks, Well, I was sitting here thinking, it's been a while since I was out there with my own band playing a full show, but would it make sense to tour on an orchestra record since that's what's being released? If I don't get out for at least a little bit now, it...

    Yeah the title sums it all. I'm not just meaning Yngwie (whom I have always disliked) but also Steve, Satch, Gilbert, Petrucci and others that I can't think of right now. I find that I'm not that eager to listen all of those lightning fast solos and fancy techniques. Don't get me wrong this is...

    Has anybody ever heard of this band? Despite all the campiness of their power chords, they are quite a good band! I think they use Ibanez guitars too(well as far as I could tell...) Im pretty sure they use a 7 string too...being that most of the music is in standard and you hear that Low B...

  13. Pickups & wiring
    I have Marshall VS100 combo,Ibanez RG450 guitar(basswood,rosewood fingerboard,Edge) and I love the guitar for its action and feel but don't like the sound(muddy,thin,too dirty). I would like to put some DiMarzio in it(only pickups available in my city) to try get a bit closer to sound that I...

    Okay, so lately every single day I think about Steve Vai and his music. My two best friends and I (their names are both Brandon) totally IDOLIZE Steve Vai!!! I was riding the bus to school and staring at my binder (where I placed quotes from Steve Vai, pictures of this past weekend, pictures...

    On this planet. What is our purpose. What is it that we were meant to do? Has anyone figured out what they themselves were meant to do? Or is it just something everyone goes through life without knowing? Im not sure. Im just wondering.

    I just realized that my pet peeves could lead to some sort of OCD!!! :lol: Open cabinet doors; picture frames not being 100% PERFECTLY straight; extremely long, drawn-out conversations about HOW the HECK the UNIVERSE is EXPANDING; why men have nipples, etc... :oops: My most retarded pet peeve...

    What the heck, yo!!! I went to Borders Music and Books today... And went to go look for some Vai albums, and they had STEVE VAI, OUR GOD!! under the classification: POP. ROCK. :o!! I mean, what else can we classify Vai as? Rock? New Age? I looked in New Age first, then Rock...... Then...
