Steve Vai
    #2913947 - 07/21/04 11:23 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I am obsessed with this guy. Known about him for about half a year, and every time I listen he gets more amazing. He doens't just play songs super fast through effects, but composes them all beforehand brilliantly and performs flawlessly.



This guy is GOD (to me). For The Love Of God, Tender Surrender, Bad Horsie, the list goes on..........

Yes, parts of it. Very good. The Audicence is Listening = amazing song. Starts with about a minute of this woman talking about being happy, then suddenly Steve comes in and, while she's talking, he matches perfectly the tone and volume of her voice and the length of everything that comes out (using overdubs, of course). He mimics perfectly her speech, and it has awesome results.

I'm a huge fan of satriani/petrucci/vai, and i must say that out of the 3, i like vai the least.

I think he tends to ramble with the guitar a bit when he plays. Hes definately talented, and on another level with his musical ideas...it just doesnt suit me very well.

However, i saw him play a while back at a G3, and it blew my mind live....his "for the love of god" live was absofuckinglutely amazing.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I saw that G3 tour also. My theory why they didn't release it on DVD/CD? Petrucci upstaged Vai at the end, played some cooler shit! haha

Vai is the man. He is a great composer, adding much feeling to whatever he does. It's incredible to watch him play as well, he is a great performer.
