I wasn't knocking the kid. It was more about shining a light on the fact that I should have taken it serious when I was that young. I got my first guitar when I was in elementary school and didn't do much with it except learn a few chords. It wasn't until Jr. High School that I really put in serious effort on my part. This kid is definitely an inspiration.

Same here... I dabbled in music a little in high school and beyond, and since then have wished I did a whole lot more.

And the converse, my son excelled in marching band and orchestra learning Sax and trumpet. That suddenly came to a halt with college. Such a shame. He was good with no where to go but up. Instead College life completely shut out his music direction along with video games.

Nita Strauss / The day I got tricked into meeting my guitar hero, Jason Becker

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ti5rWHOkZ0

This is fantastic. I loved that they showed that she was terrified of playing in front of Jason. This just adds to the authenticity of the moment. This just goes to show that even someone as accomplished as she is, has too deal with moments of doubt. She nailed it.

Rob Scallon - Metallica's "One" Played on One Guitar

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzwPZ27ju5I

This is awesome. I can only imagine how may times they had to rehearse this to get it right so that they wouldn't step on each others....fingers.

That certainly was different. Not seen anything like that before.

Pretty cool to watch.

I sure don't remember if you did, but it warrants a post here. That was cool.

She's not a god, but good and damn if she isn't creative. I really enjoy her take Fleetwood Mac's. Man give her a platform (studio) and let's see what she could do.

Steve Vai - The Making of Woody

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wyKqZeMdUI

This is without a doubt the best and certainly the most entertaining Guitar Build video ever.

Steve Vai - "30 years of the Ibanez JEM"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gjf_e6h0dtY

This video is dope. This is just another prime example why I love Steve's YouTube Channel. His videos are just more than the standard "look at me shred" puff pieces. As for the JEM, I've always wanted one for myself and came pretty close to pulling the trigger on the Floral JEM and the Multi-Color JEM. But they were so damn expensive back in the late 80's, early 90's that I just couldn't justify that kind of price.

Steve Vai and Russian Guitarists - Flash Mob Live 2016, Moscow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRurCKVDTEU


I'm trying to recall if I have ever seen that many guitar players on one stage before. The only thing I can think of is AC/DC (Who Made Who) and Ace Frehley (Rock Soldiers), but those were music videos. This is something different all together. It wouldn't surprise me one bit that none of them were actually plugged in. Having watched it a second time, I don't think they are because A), that's a lot of noise to control and they can't be so perfectly in sync to make it sound as "clean" as it is and B) at the end of the song when Steve is saying his "thank you" to the crowd, a bunch of the guitar players in the back are still strumming and yet.....no sound. I think it was more like a music video after all. Haha. Hey, at least that were on stage with Vai. That's more than most people get.
