WOW! GURU! He is definitely inspiring, he should do some motivational self hypnosis tracks.

Can you imagine a boot camp with Vai, Guthrie and Satch, one intense weekend, just you and those three regardless of level. You could only come out of it a better person cool.gif

That's great, thanks Gab, of course it's not just the mechanics, a major major part of it is the ear and the speed at which the ear recognises the pitch if it recognises it at all. I really struggle with my ear but it does work if I really know a piece. I remember trying to learn Always With Me Always With You and the TAB had a couple of notes that were a fret out and I noticed it right away. That's why I was going to learn the Phil Collen lesson by sliding to the notes, I thought it might instil the correct notes in my head if I learnt it off by heart that way and then progressed to bending. I didn't get around to it though, but I think I might still try it along with developing my bending technique.

Cheers Gab

He runs the Vai Academy every year. Satch was at the first one and Guthrie was at the second (I think)!!
This was this years one. With Steve Morse and Yngwie!!

Here's another interesting Vai interview, short but sweet, I think he was doing a few at a guitar convention in the UK, seems like the interviewers got around 10-15 minutes with him. He doesn't seem very interested in the beginning but Justin asks some good questions wink.gif

I have tried visualisation in the past but I can never get an image, I always thought you were supposed to be able to see and image like a dream when you use "The mind's eye" but I can' get anything, just darkness laugh.gif
