Hey Bro!!!

  For the Love of God! The first time I heard the tune was from a guy who played guitar in River maya. His name is Perf de Catsro. He lend me the "Tape" (sorry ha...hindi pa masyadong uso ang CD nuon eh :-D). I always gets attracted to good solos..but man, Vai can evoke some deeper feelings in you once you hear his licks! I never did hear anything after Passion and Warfare but at least the notes of the song lasted me through these years...until recently...I ventured into You Tube. LO and behold...Vai together with an Orchestra and the very first time I heard, "Lotus Feet"...(hanep!!!) ang galing bro!!!

   man, the notes that goes through his brain is connected to something Divine!
 
   He admits that he is a spiritual person and he does meditate! somehow that explains something to where he gets his Inspiration!

  Yun  lang! :-D

   God Bless!

first time i heard vai was the first time i saw him...

the movie  "crossroads" as the devil's guitar player , jack butler.

but even before that, naririnig ko na sya sa david lee roth band...but wala akong alam sa gitara noon at mahilig lang ako makinig ng music sa radio.

"passion and warfare" will always be my favorite vai album.

i would only dream about learning his songs, it would take a whole career to completely get his technique down.

i learned a lot from his 10 hour workout in guitar world. and his articles from guitar player, would help my insight. he is a genius.

the only song/solo i was able to learn would be "eugene's trick bag" from the movie crossroads. all his other songs would be too hard for me to learn.

Dude if you can play "Eugene's Trick Bag" flawlessly, i think you can play For The  Love Of God without having any difficulties  :-D

BTW OT do you have the Guitar World CD-Rom where they featured Vai's 10 hour workout? Cause GW didn't send me one.........PAKOPYA hehehe

I was introduced to vai's music by my elder brother. The first song i heard from him was the Yankee Rose when he was yet with the David Lee Roth Band. The song's intro is very unique and genius, only a guitar wizard could do that. The first song I learned was Warm Regards, and it took me a century to nail it  :-D. And yes my fave is of course FTLOG. I just really love vai's nuances.

the first vai song that i learned was CRYING MACHINE. firegarden kasi ang unang vai record na nakuha ko.. inaral ko rin yung aching hunger,warm regards,dyin day,.. then my friend gave me his casette tape of alien love secrets.. that album became my favorite among his albums. i learned tender surrender pero ang hirap nung last part!!!!!! tapos yung pinakapaborito ko na boy from seattle... again, mahirap na naman yung last part!!!!!! hahaha... ang lupet ni vai.. unique ang tonality..

Passion and Warfare in the late 80s early 90s. I was listening to Vai and Satch really.  Didn't learn any songs from him but was heavily listening to his music and got influenced by him.

Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey soundtrack...... Vai lahat yung mga air guitar parts....really cool stoner movie.

10 hour workout also helped me when I was still buying guitar mags.... awesome guitar player.

there was a time, noong nag sisimula pa lang akong maggitara ay araw-araw kong ginagawa. i don't think it was flawless, pero nakaka-loko ng ibang gitarista.....

eventually, i just realized na mas gusto kong sariling style ko na lang kesa manggaya ako----hehe, palusot ibig sabhin nun talagang nahirapan akong kumopya ng solo ni steve vai.

bro, baka may cd ako ng hinahanap mo. taga -saan ka ba?

Huge Vai fan here! I'm a fan of his music and character! He's the true guitar hero! Grabe mga live performances niya, madadala ka talaga. Favorite ko yung Alien Love Secrets, lalo na yung DVD nito. Of all his songs, Tender Surrender talaga ang favorite ko.
