Steve Vai is a great technical guitarist, thats true, ill give him that much. But Steve does not have any musical feel. He knows how to play guitar but he doesn't know how to play music. He's fun to watch for 2 minutes, then he gets boring cause its the same thing all over again, speed, speed, speed, speed, speed.........Boring. Take someone like BB.king. He's a great guitarist. HE plays slow but he plays from the heart, and thats what music ia all about.
