Hmm, i agree with the TS but also the opposing party. I can't stand his music(not a fan of guitar intsrumental in general, not just him) but he is talented and there's no denying that.

He does have some really weird and random music but he is unbelievably talented...to say steve vai sucks is blasphemy!

i agree a bit. it's no question that he's a phenomenal guitarist with more talent than i will ever even dream of having, but i just don't like his style/sound.

Yeah i mean, Synyster has obviously changed the face of guitar music, whereas vai just plays crappy mainstream music... oh wait...

Steve Vai, took 11 months practicing, and completely nailed this modern classical piece in front of a live audience with absolutely no audio or visual recording

^ there.

See how i fix the stupid things you say. Its as easy as understanding the concept of Synyster being an average, mediocre guitarist. His band would be just as big without him, he is not a necessity, he is not the god you are treating him like.

Unless you live in England, or any other country which isn't in your time vicinity, and are sat at home because you have just got back from school.

No, it was a closed performance, Ichiro Nodaira's [the composer]'s wishes, so there is absolutely no proof beyond the audience, orchestra members, composer, and Vai

Oh I get it, this thread is all a joke, you wanted us all to rave about how great Steve Vai is!


Wait. It's not a joke?

In that case, please hurl yourself off the nearest cliff. We'll wait.

So far Vai is the first and only guitarist to play it, so let's just sit and hope that he decides to go at it again....damn Japanese composers...and their wishes

EDIT: okay, I looked into it a lot more, it was played at 3 concerts, all on consecutive days, and this says he was going to try to record it, but it's before the actual thing took place
