Well...some of it has to do with his using a slide for a good bit of the song, the rest is Vai-brand magic...

flange, wah(morley bad horsie),distortion, tune to drop C, dimarzio evolution or breed pickups.

you can make your own insane donkey noises for the end of the song

For that Steve Vai sound you will need a JEM and a Carvin Legacy...simple enough ehh?

everyone has missed the main point that he plays it with a slide


I didn't know that! (it's true)

But only on the chorus part, i guess...

we did, and........

didn`t mention the slide `cos it was mentioned ahead of my post (#4 if you wanna be pedantic) and it`s normally in the performance notes to use a slide

IMO...if you can't tell by listening to the song that VAI is using a slide then you really shouldn't be trying to learn the song yet.

I thouhgt the TS original question was more based on how to get the tone VAI has for that song

for the tone use a glass slide with a thick distortion with the mid slightly scooped

Heh...I guess I meant to say "really, everyone (has missed it)" not "really, everyone is a dumbass"

The point I was trying to make is that not everyone had missed it...not trying to be like "omg i'm so awesome"
