No questions, just a compliment on how you conducted the interview.

Man he looked like he could've talked for days.....Who pulled the plug?
Pity he couldn't of done a demo of what he was talking about on the guitar.
Did you get to jam with him Justin?

Great interview!  Really inspiring.  Steve seems really into visualization.  I'll have to try that.

Vai COULD talk for days; he's got so much going on in his head nd he knows how to put it in words

props to Justin too, in manageing to let Steve do most the talking of course (bad interviewers need to ask too many quesions :) )

that´s right. most interviewers want to show what smart guys they are. it was good to see that justin wanted steve to talk and didn´t interrupt him.

I'm pretty sure he knows Beck is familiar with the note names, the point he was getting at was that you don't HAVE to know the note names to be a great musician. It's not some sort of requirement to knowing and playing great music. He meant it's all about listening and the connection between your ears and your fingers.

Also, I agree, great interview, sadly it was short but what can you do? I went and watched another one of his interviews after this and noticed that some of the stuff in this interview had already been asked in previous interviews, but nonetheless it was very interesting.

True, but there are very few who have the innate, organic understanding of music of Hendrix or Coltrane. Most people need to develop their musical ability though assimilation and analysis, accompanied by trial and error. Learning theory is a 'tedious' requisite for most mere mortals.

would have been great to hand him a guitar at the end and asked him to play ;D All interviews should end like that, great job though.
