    at 1:42 it sounds like the clarification from Close encounters of the third kind when we make contact with the aliens. lol. Steve’s an alien hahaha.

    @aigmeyer Makes me feel better about wanting to practice. Steve Vai, as excellent as he is, still relies on dedication and HARD WORK to make music and play guitar. Makes me feel better about practicing. XD

  10. mkaali says:

    @InsanityType66 cafo is on a 7 string brah! but yes that shit is CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! those intro sweeps always blow me off my feet!

  12. InsanityType66 says:

    @camshreds I LOVE THAT SONG! A: I don’t know how to play it (or find out how)
    B: I don’t have 8 strings :/

  13. camshreds says:

    @InsanityType66 CAFO by: animals as leaders you will slap ya momma that shit is so crazy.

  14. camshreds says:

    @AciDXRaiN27 they are used in drums, but the band animals as leaders uses them A LOT! they use odd time signatures on guitar and layer that over a 4/4 drum beat and that is what i meant buy the polyrythm. What steve is doing is different.

  15. AciDXRaiN27 says:

    @camshreds he does. he doubtless just assumes everyone else doesnt, so he didnt want to whip out the huge vocabulary lol but maybe not. polyrythms are more used in the drum planet and not so much in the guitar planet.

  16. InsanityType66 says:

    Just learnt it. COOLEST. TAPPING. EVER :) (my opinion, if anyone has suggestions of songs with outstanding tapping, please message me!)

  17. camshreds says:

    that is called a polyrythm steve. I thought you knew everything about music!

  18. RoderickCissan says:

  21. js100serch says:

  22. foxns7 says:

    Akira Takasaki of Loudness did the same technique too on the ‘Soldier of Fortune’ and ‘In The Mirror’ solos…he’s one of the best tappers out there till today..anyone agree?

  23. btyremanable says:

    an awesome riff, it reminds me of free jazz and buckethead

  24. masterdebradwick says:

  25. tjompiskompis says:
