I'm watching it and I still have no idea what he's doing to make those sounds.

I followed the comments to the All About Evo page on Vai.com. That's a messed up guitar. Eesh.

I have this DVD! This performance of this song is superlative!
Steve Vai can open his soul for the audience when he's playing..

I've seen Vai play this piece twice live before. I also got to hold THE Evo, and I met Vai for my 15th birthday.



... but actually I like Windows to the Soul more than W.A.P. these days. Lots of great Vai ballads. I'd say that's his strong point.

Steve Vai is my other faviroute next to Paul Gilbert biggrin.gif What beautiful technique he is showing in this video. Love the JEM too cool.gif

Yeah, well he puts his guitars through hell, and they still sound perfect!

Anyway, Steve vai is a magnificent performer, Windows Of The Soul is another one of my favorite, also Hand On Heart is great, i love that one to.
