eh, guys, ive just watched this video of Steve Vai and besides his brutal usage of the whammy bar (lol) this thing caught my attention heavily:

around 8:50 he is doing some squeals, and it looks like he is doing it by blowing on the strings!!! can someone confirm that and maybe explain a bit about this technique? cause it looks totally amazing to me! ^^

its not so much that i feel guilty about masturbating, its the things that i masturbate to that make me feel guilty.
Blowing on the strings doesn't really do anything. Steve Vai is just being a showman. He's just doing that for dramatic effect. It's really his Fernandes Sustainer kicking in.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.
