Here is a link to a download of a PDF file of a book called 30 hour workout by Steve vai, he explains everything and there are exercises for fingers/scales/shred/sweep/jam everything!!! It's based for a three day 10 hours per day lesson plan. But of course, im not going to do that.. but I'm going to use the excercises and for inspiration.! Download Steve vay, 30 hour workout.


I've disabled the link for the time being while we sort out whether this is free or copyrighted material - Micke

I´ve bought the Guitar World some months ago. There´s the interview with Vai and his excellent work-out. It´s really well-structured. Have fun! tongue.gif

It's excellent!
He did that 4 years ago, as a follow up to his 10 hour workout published in 1990. wink.gif

QUOTE ("Steve Vai")
Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

yeah, I read it few years ago and it's interesting, but I think that each one must find his own method. BTW it's an interesting inspiration biggrin.gif
