In the movie crossroads? Or does anyone have a good picture of it? Red Charvel possibly?

It was a Red San Dimas Charvel, but the actual part was recorded with Vai's "Green Meanie" Charvel.

The rest of the movie is decent. Nothing spectacular, but watchable. Vai has said that he made up that Bad Horsie-ish lick during the filming of the movie. Originally it was supposed to be something like a train whistling.

And I totally agree on the retarded, dancing girl.

Its amazing how long you can keep a riff or a melody before really using it (considering Alien Love Secrets was released almost a decade after crossroads)

^It's not that hard to find. :p: As a matter of fact, they play it on CMT sometimes, for some reason.
