Hey GMC! im almost done recovering from my fever and I plan to start out with steve vai's 30 hour work out. I already play ten hours a day like steve vai except i have no set organization. it is pretty much just jam. An no I do not have a life, I wish i did though haha. Of course , I will probably lose some motivation along the way. I was hoping somebody can try it with me? Interested?

If anyone is interested, please pm me for the entire workout.

PS Any tips? laugh.gif

I would if I had the time. I'll do in the summer if you ever feel like doing it again, because I would definetly need someone else doing with me.

I believe it's very good nonetheless
but maybe you don't have to bother with that,
30 hours thinking of something seems scary to me,
there are endless things to practice anyhow. smile.gif
