... P.S. After playing for a handful of years i have also found that there are many different ways to play a certain piece of music and that it is in the hands of the musician that determines what feels comfortable.

First you must tune the guitar like you always do. If the trem/bridge system is pulled too much upwards you should adjust the tremeleo springs. The springs are located in the body. If the threm is pulled upwards that means there should be more tension in the springs. If there are 2 springs, the tigh...

I've got a question, are the tabs/sheet music also copyright protected? If so, is downloading Vai tabs from e.g. powertabs.net also stealing?

Yeah, me and a few hundred other Vai fans. :wink: Glad no camera dudes were in my face the night before, but it would be freaking cool to hear yourself shout on television... at a Vai concert... Good cameravie...

I've listened to the album a couple of times now and starting to get a good grasp on this album. Once again I'm reminded that I don't like vocals for various reason, funny thing is that Vai was the person who introduced me to instrumental music. But the vocals are not anoying so I can live with that...

I'm starting to believe my Music Store jumped the gun with selling the new album. I thought the official release date was the 22nd but they sold it to me today.

Anyway, I don't mind if they did.. . hehe.

Edit: People, if you even had any doubts, don't worry! it is GOOD! T...

Yeah, he always seems very relax and cool when I read his posts on another forum.

You know if he brings his new signature BO-EL along when he's on your birthday? It looks real nice from what i've seen on some pictures, and it sounds even better.

I've seen him play and exchanged some words but I'm not his friend and I don't know him personally. I just admire his music.
