Steve Vai studied when he was young 10 or 15 hours at day, he divided this time in exercises, musical theory, scales, reading music and improvisation.
Around 2 hours for everything, and later he wants the most strangest things on the guitar...

Guys, there's no ultra guitar wisdom in SV's 10 hour workout; it just explains the following:

1. SV spent a lot of time playing hundreds of permutations of 1,2,3,4 across and up and down the fretboard;
2. SV played all chords, scales, and arpeggios in all positions and all keys;
3. SV played melodic sequences in all keys and positions;
4. SV played intervals in all keys and positions;
5. SV concentrated on picking;
6. SV concentrated in slurring;
7. SV played a lot of songs;
8. SV transcribed a lot of songs;
9. SV improvised a lot.

but Steve Vai transcribed a lot of music, when he was the guitarist of Frank Zappa...and Zappa teach him...that's an very important advantage...

no offence to anyone but these 10 hour workouts dont seem to make much sence, just seems like alot of stirct practicing scales and picking fast, its better to learn by playing songs and jamming with other musos.
