Nice of them, but i think that tribute sucked big time...
Yep gotta agree there. It's typical Vai overindulgence noodling.
Nice job filming. You framed the shots perfectly.

And now for the flame. Those two guys put together harmonized melodies in a day, played some goofy solos in tribute to a guy who wore one glove and walked on his toes alot, and did it on probably a single rehersal. Steve and Andy have turds that can play better than probably everyone on this site. They were doing what they do. If you don't like endless noodling and guitar ****ery, don't hang around a forum dedicated to a guitar designed for noodling and ****ery. I know everyones entitled to an opinion, and I know this is one, but does everybody like to crap on people just to crap on people? The internet truly exposes how much people suck sometimes.
Sorry - I still think this is still pointless noodling. I've noticed that a lot of times when Vai plays live he just goes into "masturbation" mode on the guitar and this is what you end up with, something that goes nowhere.
Yes the Jem/RG series of guitars may be suited to fast playing but that doesn't mean that everything coming out of them has to be a ****fest, also I don't think this forum is dedicated to mindless noodling either. There have been some great tunes and playing on the Jem/RG as well as stuff that's shown up from players on this site from time to time. So if you don't mind, I'll reserve my privilege to keep hanging around the forum hoping from time to time to hear something inspirational.
