Not really, I think it's rather logical, considering you weren't around for the numerous threads we've already had on them before you registered...

I just freaking wish he'd go back to using modded Marshalls or the Bogners. I don't really llike the tone he has now at all.

Yeah it's spread out over the course of 3 days, but I don't have the time for that, so I just fit in the hours when I can.

Vai is still my favourite guitarist (Saw him at Zappa Plays Zappa in Vancouver last month, and he completely blew me away) but when compared to Satriani in terms of writing and solid albums, he cant hold a candle to him. I find that with Vai, you really have to wade through all the crap to get to the good stuff... but the good stuff is AMAZING.

steve's awesome, so is satch. i really like steve's music, but sometimes it can get a little boring when he shreds too much. i can always listen to satriani though, his songs have a groovy feeling to them, and he keeps the insane shredding to a minimum. but still, vai is great, one of my major influences in guitar. along with satch and petrucci.

if anyone's new to vai, i suggest the album: Steve Vai: an infinite anthology. it's practically 2 disks of the more popular songs. some good songs aren't on there though, like touching tongues and warm regards, melissa's garden either.

what some guy said earlier, I haven't heard decent covers of Vai, except that Mexican guy from youtube, but he focus on getting the vai sound, not the vai thinking.

I can see alot of players play Vai but not play LIKE Vai.

Tender Surrender and For The Love of God are probably his best known.

Is anyone else sick of people saying that Steve Vai or the Satch have no soul when they've only listened to one song at the most?

Yeah dude, they probably haven't heard Tender Surrender. Or For The Love Of God. Or Lotus Feet. Or any of the 7th songs for that matter.

His phrasing is pretty freaky. No one except Vai can play the solos from Tender Surrender and FTLOG.
