That is one confusing line lol. biggrin.gif

I'm guessing you said listened to too little of them to decide. Or something along those lines biggrin.gif

I think that Gilbert is awesome but Steve Vai is a genius that is always experimenting. However it's great that both exist.

To be honest, i've never been a big fan of Vai. Dont get me wrong, he's a technical genious and all but i just cant get into his songs.

Gilbert on the other hand makes catchier and more memorable songs, atleast in my ears. So Gilbert is my fav smile.gif

Paul Gilbert, without a doubt.
Steve Vai is amazing, but I find him a bit too extravagant as a person.

Gilbert, on the other hand, seems to have the right mix of madness/geniousness and down to earth attitude.

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.

These are my two favorite guitarists. For me Vai is #1 without a doubt. His compositions are so unique and amazing.

Paul for sure, I really dig his music, I don't like Steve Vai's music at all really, I find it too out there, he's a great guitarist but he only has a couple of songs that I actually like. Gilbert on the other hand, his last two albums I have listened to for hours on end and have enjoyed them thoroughly. Plus Paul just seems like a really chill nice guy and Vai, well he just doesn't seem quite as down to earth, I could be wrong though.

Vai really introduced me into the solo guitar world, his stuff is just incredible, maybe not as memorable as some of Paul Gilberts, but listening to the whole album Crossroads/Passion and Warfare all the way through just blow my mind. I also like that vai writes alot of stuff that isn't complete shred yet hes very capable of outshredding most of everyone. My vote is for the man with a 3 neck heart guitar smile.gif

For me I would choose Steve Vai Without any doubt. I "discovered" Gilbert a long time and he was nice and still is I like his stuff, but I not too long ago "discovered" Steve Vai and this dude changed my life! I will never look at music the same way after I saw Steve playing! wub.gif
