Too many to name. But the one that I went to first was the Red Flame Guitar (as seen in the Goin' Crazy video) because I just wanted to see that he still had it in his possession. He doesn't have it anymore, but it was for a good cause why he doesn't as it was sold to help out his friend and also the luthier of said guitar. Also shocked to see that he doesn't have 2 of the 3 Heart Guitars either.

Steve Vai's Wild Guitar Collection | Reverb

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



We FINALLY get a somewhat "in depth" peek at Steve's Collection. Sure, there have been a few vids out there where he is demo'ing something or giving an interview.....but this is a first (that I have seen) where we finally get a run down of all that incredible guitars hanging on his wall.

Hey Steve, Guitar Center called and they want their store back. 🤘😎🤘

Steve Vai - "Bad Horsie" from the Harmony Hut

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pl46Qsk-Wvs

If you are living under a rock, you a missing out. Steve has basically being going LIVE every day on his Channel during the Lockdown and it has been fascinating to watch. Yes, he plays and this is taken from one of his LIVE sessions. F*ck man, I can't stress how lucky we are to be alive to witness him in all his glory. I've heard this song a million times and seen him play this more times than I can count and he still blows me away. Sorry Eddie....sorry Yngwie....sorry Satch, but you guys are just not in the same league as Vai. I don't mean that in a negative way. I'm just saying that Steve is on another planet entirely.

Steve Vai - "The Moon and I" (Solo Acoustic & Vocals)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBN9zqR4Wzg

I forgot to post this when it came out. But this is dope as f*ck. Yes, there is a good helping of Reverb on the vocals, but the dude can f*cking sing. Love getting to see him play an Acoustic for a change.

totally agree.  Steve is crushing it during the lockdown.  I haven't watched any of the longer videos but I've been saving them all.

Michael Batio has been uploading lots of lessons from his facebook live sessions (onto his youtube channel)...he's such a character and a damn good teacher!!

Batio is been putting out the most content lately. So much so that it seems that's the only thing in my YT feed these days.

Not so much as playing, but more noodling around with some of the Guitar Sims I'm checking out as I find them.

Steve Vai "Alien Guitar Secrets: EP7 - The PIA"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZvM43VGGes&t=5142s

What a fantastic episode. Man, I tell ya, what other guitar player out there is a virtuoso on the fretboard as well as an orator. This guy can do it all. I can listen to him talk forever. This episode is basically two parts. The first half, he talks about how to be in the 'zone' and how to just let go. Riveting stuff and very informative. The 2nd half of the episode, he talks about the history of the Jem (pre and current) and how it evolved into the Pia. I can definitely see myself watching this again. Highly recommend checking this one out. His running commentary of his Acoustic playing (The Moon and I) was was hella fun to listen to.

FYI, be sure to watch/listen to the last 20 minutes or so of the video (The Bathroom story). It's both funny and icky at the same time. I'm surprised Steve even told it to anyone other than his family. I sure wouldn't have. But then again....I ain't Vai!!!!
