    A month ago i went to the NGW where steve did a 3 hour clinic/masterclass. We finished classes at 12 for an hour break before he came, but I went to where he was going to be an hour early. I was looking through the door and then I saw him and my heart dropped. I watched him do soundcheck and...

    Hello all, (Problem is that when I try pull-offs I can't seem to get the string to ring without putting a lot of force on my other fingers, hence the little one goes mental again.) I'm currently trying to tidy up my abysmal playing, so I'm working though the Troy Stetina Mechanics book and...

    I have listened to quite a few Vai albums and watched the live DVD's but has he really prodgressed his playing since the 1980's. I have just seen a clip from a Zappa gig in 1982 pulling off the same licks and moves he does now!

    If God could speak, he would sound like this song. Sure there are no lyrics but that's not the point. This song is beyond amazing. The fast picking by Steve blended with the slow vibe to the song, oh my goodness...!! This thread is dedicated to the Godliness that is Blue Powder by Steve Vai.

    I would like to clearly point out that Hendrix, Clapton, Page, Zappa, BB King and Stevie Ray Vaghan etc are the true masters of guitar. I admire people like Satch and Vai but they are really, just good guitar palyers. What I mean is they can play fast and a hold load of techniques, but they have...

    On what to learn. I've basically worked at Eruption for the last month or so and I got that down good quite well except for a few parts in the song but other than that it's top notch. Now that I have 2 weeks of holidays I need to work at my guitar fiercly. Today was a variety show at my school...

    This may have been discussed a zillion times...but you know on the Halo 2 theme song in the beginning where Steve does that really loooooonng drawn out harmonic? How the crap did he do that? I've been trying to do it myself but you can't make the harmonic from one note ring out that long with...

    I don't know which hurts more? My fingers from the lack or progress or my ears from the, well... lack of progress ;) (you should hear some of the rubbish that's coming out of the amp - actually, no you shouldn't, no-one should be subjected to this!!!;) ) It's been ages since I struggled like...
