I want my soloing/improvisation to sound similar to his. He is just amazing.

So in order to do this, what solos/licks should I learn?

the solo for lotus feet (where he speeds up like crazy) i think is one of his best solos

Tender Surrender, Die to Live, The Animal, The Audience is Listening, Jibboom (sp?) are all good ones.

The key to playing like Vai is to make funny faces.


Don't forget a well placed fan to blow back the hair ... it's the only way to invoke the viking god of shred .... or whatever.

Since we're on topic with Vai, does anyone what he does at 0:12? Sounds cool

I don't know, Vai knows so many cool chord voicings...

I'd say check out the Building the Church Live from G3 Tokyo version, Aching Hunger from The Fire Garden album is one of my favorites, and also try Whispering a Prayer...
