Few modern rock guitarsist have had such a major impact on the guitar community as Steve Vai. Mr Vai’s musical ability comprises of strong, unpredictable compositions – as well as a technical driven guitar style with innovative techniques and melodies.
In this lesson lesson we will approach Steve’s pattented tones and techniques by analysing “Vai slides”, whammy-bar tricks, lydian mode and plain shred! The backing tracks should allow you to start practicing these techniques slowly – and gradually work your way to the top! As always, if this feels way to difficult for you – just focus on nailing one single lick.
In this short video I show you a wonderful invention called PTFE Tape (Plumbers Tape) which you can simply and easily use to stop you whammy bar from rattling. My strats have always had this problem and I can’t believe it’s taken 20 years to find the answer – which is why I made this little vid. Hope it sorts it for you too. This problem had bothered me for years and BIG THANKS to all the wonderful people on twitter who told me about this remedy. 🙂 Cheers.Taught by Justin Sandercoe.
