For a taste of Steve Vai’s quirky brand of virtuosity, check out the following clips on YouTube:
Vai performs “The Attitude Song”—one of
his seminal classics—with the Metropole
Orchestra in 2008.
Three necks are better than one, as Vai demonstrates
during this 2003 G3 concert (with
Yngwie Malmsteen and Joe Satriani) in Denver.
From 4:34–4:40, Vai plays the most insane
5ths-based sequence ever.
Vai and bass god Billy Sheehan perform “Shy
Boy,” the unison-filled shredfest that symbolized
their respective instrumental powers during
their stint with David Lee Roth in the mid
’80s. Here, Sheehan takes vocal duties.
