One of my biggest inspirations, "Whispering A Prayer" is probably my second favorite song of all time, its so Beautiful it makes me shake!

His technique is just mindblowing!

His composing abilities are amazing, his playing amazing, his singing...... not so great, firewall did not really impress me. I absolutly love what he has done with his music, the crying machine and building the church are my two favorite songs. Im going to see him in toronto on September 23 right after firewind on the 22nd promising to be a good weekend smile.gif

Well, what can I say? Steve Vai is the man is as simple as I can put it, and I'm looking forward to his new cd with the Metroplole Orchestra smile.gif

Every time I see a video of him perform, it reminds me of why I picked up the guitar in the first place wink.gif

If you haven't seen some of his performances with the Metropole Orchestra, check this one out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34y4JgVJjEc
It's a cool rendition of his song "Answers".

@Smikey2006: I'm going to see him on the 23rd of September as well! I'll probably see you there somewhere among the crowd smile.gif

Talking about guitar gods.... i LOVE Steve Vai - just for the record!!!

BUT again - guys if you don't think about GODs it will make your life easier and more interesting! None of them is a GOD - absolutely NONE of them!!!!
Those "GODS" you refer to have over 20 years of experience with guitar!

They are PROFESSIONAL GUITARISTS!!

If you think of it like that you'll live much more comfortable and you won't hit the wall each time you can't play something! It's just the practice that made them so good!!

Take it as a friendly advice! smile.gif

Steve Vai is one of the best guitarist there is.
I saw him in Nasville ,Tennessee at a bar and he had his jem with lights built in to the fretboard,and had these laser light rings on his fingers.Dont forget about his bass player Billy.My opinion he is the best bass player i have EVER heard.


--------------------
My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

You're absolutely correct. All those excellent guitarists are human beings like the rest of us, and as Pavel says, they just have years of intensive practice sessions under their belt, anyone can get good with A LOT of hard work and the right attitude. wink.gif

Besides, if look through any biology book to read about genes that contribute to musical talent, you won't find anything, because those genes don't exist! What you see a great guitar player do on stage for maybe a couple hours is the result of years spent with their instrument in the "woodshed".

So don't give up, it's a super-cliched saying, but it really pays dividends if you follow it with regards to the guitar or any other skill you want to develop. smile.gif
