Geniale Technikübungen für Anhänger des virtuosen Spiels. Man muss schon einiger Zeit einplanen u das alles zu bewerkstelligen, aber nach einiger Zeit stellt sich der Erfolg ein. Alles wird flüssiger, Akkorde, Licks, Riffs.... super Buch.

The Great thing about people in all walks of life, who have become successful in their field, whatever industry that is, is that when they are good teachers, they help the next generation towards insights into what works and what doesn't while we are on this Earth. Providing us with the next step of what we formerly thought was "impossible"...possible.
We don't always have to re-invent the wheel. Studying the greats, people who excel in what they LOVE doing, because they LOVE it so much, can be evident in the Fruits they bare. Big or small it doesn't matter. It's a decision. A believe in a your PERSONAL Purpose. Steve Vai is one of those people.
I love diving deep into this intensive material. Some of the things he talks about (for me personally) are pretty basic, like for example motoring exercises. I have been already doing them for years, they work ! Period. They CRUCIAL for making the physical "part" of your playing possible. But diving into the 30 hour Workout and the stories behind what he does and how he thinks, makes it more of a personal one-on one conversation with Steve Himself. I have learned so much more already. A good way of looking at this book (i find) is looking at it as if you are hlding gold in your hands and you seeing it in a new way, even though some things you have done or applied already before) and by repeating, it will make this book more powerful. Just like with everything.
Thank God for Steve Vai !!! Steve If you are reading this, and I believe you are. I thank you from the heart of hearts for inspiring me throughout the years, striving to be a better artist, learning to read between the lines, a better human being and coach/consultant !!! I am working on my debut album now. You are one of the very few people that showed me that there is more to it, then "just" playing guitar. Enlightening. God Bless, Henri
