The GURU of VAI
« on: January 05, 2018, 01:40:09 pm »
let's do this....so many amazing Steve Vai lessons on Youtube...so much wisdom and not only guitar knowledge but just approaches to mastery of an artistic skill and creativity.

Here's a few to start it off...this can be our one stop Steve Vai guitar lesson center...and I think it will be bad ass.

Nice thread. I hear that Joe Satriani just joined Penny Can just to soak up all the knowledge here.

Steve Vai vs Ralph Macchio Epic Guitar Battle (Crossroads Duel)

FYI, ya can't have a Vai thread without having the Crossroads Duel that started it all (in the public's mind that is).

funny story.

one time my dad came over YEARS ago and I happened to be listening to Vai.

he goes out of the blue...this sounds like that scene in CROSSROADS.  I was floored because the movie was like 15 years old at the time...and
it's not like he knows Vai or what makes him unique.  I was really impressed but my dad actually has always been a BIG music fan but more like the British blues and early rock

apparently Steve Vai was once Buckethead.  ;)



actually his hobby is bee keeping.  I knew I needed to add one thing to my "get awesome" plan.

note to self....gather bees and wear yellow.

Modern Primitive which Vai says is his favorite album he's done (and touring for the 30 anniversary of Passion and Warfare) he said most fans agreed.

I will say I do not like the first track very much but this playlist looks to have them all on it.

and this ties in directly with that tour and this album release:

I just checked those two new guitar lesson videos Vai has up...you caught those crazy frets!  great eye.

I totally didn't notice that...although in my defense I was working and only listening!!

Steve has his fave and I have mine. Bar none...Passion and Warfare takes top prize.

As for the Frets, those aren't new. I actually saw them maybe 2-3 years ago in another video of his. He may have had them longer than that, but that's when I noticed them for the first time.
