OMFG!!! Steve Vai, Yes the actual Steve Vai (The most prolific guitarist in history since hendrix, in my opinion) who has been a huge influence on my playing and outlook on life in general has actually watched and written me a personal message to my rendition of his song Tender Surrender, i wont post a link here as the mods dont like that sort of thing but im sure you can find it if you look hard enough!.

I had to share a huge moment in my life here, the power of the web is truly amazing, you never know who might watch one of your videos that you upload so to everyone out there working on their music i hope this might give you more inspiration to put your stuff out there! I do feel very lucky this evening! (pic attached of his comment!) thanks to everyone that shared the video, somehow it made it to the biggest guitarist in the worlds laptop!

Shouldn't have asked that question at the end, but still that's pretty sweet, man.
Check out my band Disturbed

Unless it's fake, congratulations! Very cool to have a famous guitarist reply to your video.

That's fantastic. Steve Vai sure is a great player and musician. Can imagine you would be very happy with that.

And screw what any mod thinks, post it. or at least give me a link >_>

Remember me to the one who lives there
For she once was a true love of mine

Of course Steve Vai would be looking for videos of people playing his music on Youtube. Narcissist.

He presumably watches videos of himself playing his songs and you still say he's humble.

Found your video. There's your reply to the Steve Vai comment, but not his actual comment.
#19
It's him... or if it's not it's someone closely connected to him.

I'd post his channel but the link seems to be down.
#20
The fact steve vai took the time to comment on your video raises my respect for him to a different level. Legendary AND humble.
Just a sub-par guitar player..

Hey dude if you sort comments by thread (beta) you will see it. Youtube for some reason fooked the comment order up on the video- no idea why

Found it, so it's not fake. Congrats! I don't really like shredders/solo guitarists but he is very famous and got a great technique. Very cool to have a reply by him. Nice playing too. Keep up the good work!

Oh cheers man, i posted this not actually expecting anyone to check the video out but thats awesome you did! really appreciate the feedback! I loved that tune from the moment i saw a guitar, in fact it was that song i heard when i started playing!
#33
Probably Steve liked that you used his signature hand moves in the hammer-on and pull-off parts of the song.
You just missed out saying "pardon" (in french, of course!).

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.

Probably the last time he uploaded. It's the same thing with my channel.
