Just made this one for you all today! One of the only Vai songs (... mostly) playable sans whammy bar! I have a couple guitars with trems that you all have seen in my other videos, but i have one bar that both of them share... and it broke! So for now i am without tremolo. Oh well.
It's not totally perfect, but you know what? It's a Steve Vai song! Hahaha... I'd like to know more about which guitar he recorded this with; it seems near impossible to get the intonation on any guitar i've used to match up through the whole song. I know Vai has used stuff like the Buzz Feiten intonation system, so maybe that's the deal. I don't know.
I am playing my custom mahogany Ibanez RG7. This one has the mighty Dimarzio D Activator Neck model in the bridge position (amazing pickup in a dark guitar) and the Dimarzio Liquifire in the neck. The middle single, a Rio Grande, isn't even wired up. Playing through my new EVH 5150 iii on the lead channel. Thanks for watching!
Nice work! I liked it. Haven't heard the song in awhile, but I think you nailed the feel of it, despite having greatly different gear.
