Hi, can anyone recommend any Steve Vai tracks to listen to? or any other guitarists along those lines. I heard some Vai stuff, and it was awesome!!

Hi there,

some of my favorite SV-tracks would be:

"For The Love Of God"
"I Would Love To"
"Blue Powder"
"Liberty"
"Animal"
( those are all from the "Passion & Warfare" album which is my favorite )

"Tender Surrender"
( which has some of the best Vai-guitarwork ever, really pure stuff without any tricks or whammy pedals / harmonizers )

"Windows To The Soul"
"Whispering a Prayer"
( those two are ballads, they´re wonderful... both were nominated for a Grammy, too )

For some weird stuff, listen to "The Attitude SOng" or his G3-live version of "Answers" ( which ends with a really cool guitar solospot... )

He really played some cool stuff when he was with David Lee ROth ( on "Eat Em And Smile" and "Skyscraper" ) and Whitesnake ( "Slip Of The Tongue" album )
Hope this helps
Eric

I thought Speed Metal Symphony was Vai , but later heard that it was Jason Becker, a different shredder.

If you like Vai you may wanna check out some Satch (Joe Satriani)...

Summer Song
Surfing with the Alien
The Extremist
Always with Me, Always with You

You may also like to listen to some Yngwie Malmsteen, he is one awesome guitar player.....

Far Beyond the Sun
I am a Viking
Magic Mirror

Only heard one Paul Gilbert song myself , quite impressive, check it out....

Technical Difficulties

There we go, see if you like them.

Peace,

Actually, that song is by Cacophony... Jason Becker & Marty Friedman...

Oh ok, all I heard that it was Jason Becker but I didn't know it was Marty Friedman as well. Nonetheless Speed Metal Symphony is a pretty good instrumental.

Yup... just wanted to point out that there´re two players on that song... and maybe make it easier for people to find the album it´s on
