Vai has always been my role model when it comes to a peak in guitar talent. Ever since i heard Eugene's Trick Bag years ago i go nuts over practicing (i now know it and it's almost to speed :-P) and so yeah i practice like 6-10 hrs a day (vai practiced like what...10 hrs a day for 16 years?)

other than that Jesus is my inspiration for everything. If he can die on a cross for everyone, i can play guitar for extended periods of time :-P

You're going to see a lot of the typical here. I'm thinking more of somebody like Joe Perry. He was able to rock it on the guitar when necessary yet managed to compose the beautiful guitar in "Dream On"

Much similar to Slash in GnR -- the legendary soft song, of course is none other than November Rain
