The cd i like the most of Vai is " the seventh song" wich is a collection of his ballads. The other songs seems to me that are just a show of technical abilities. I think that the techique he uses is the same of Satch (in fact it is almost the same school, at the beginning Vai teaches Satriani) but Satch has the ablities to make appears his guitar tremendous skill less technical and more song-releated.


It's a good point of view man. Thanks for your thoughts. I don't agree 100% with what you said about Vai's rocker stuff but it's true that Satriani always sounds melodic.

Vai is a tremendous musician and those strange ways of expression are very personal smile.gif even though there is a 15-20 % of his stuff which I don't enjoy too much, I do agree it's as outstanding as the rest up to 100%

I cannot compare the two smile.gif different personalities, different artists, which I love in equal measure wink.gif


I agree with Cosmin, I think they are two differnt and unique styles, each a master in their area. Via uniqueness to me comes more from when he was with Zappa and that is something you have to learn to appreciate I guess. But I would gladly accept the talent for either's little finger...I could use it!

Overall my vote is for Satch.. many here have said what I believe and that is his music is just more accessible. I really like Vai though.. The visuals he puts on top of his music are amazing..




Cheers!

yes, I heard different opinions about this but I like the "show" side of his art.

I could say that from the perspective of 'the whole pack' Vai is closer to being complete, having a fantastic display of image, sound and music!

I agree with all of you when you said when Vai is en excelent musician, fact is that i've been once at a Vai concert and I initally enjoy it for the first 30-60 minutes on a 2 hours show. The rest of the time i was really bored by his playing and his behaviour on stage, i feel like i was in a circus ! (sad to say that but was true) Been at Vai's concert twice just because i want to give him a second chance, result: same feeling, i was really bored after a while. Never get this feeling on other concert (satch's for example).

My point is, I really like some of the peculiar behaviour of Vai and his music (some of it al least!) but sometimes i think he over exagerate his behaviour and playing, pushing himself to a point where things become un-useful and un-necessary in a musical context.

This is my personal view of him, not want to pass this for the absolute truth or convice someone this is true neither to offend someone smile.gif
