do I dare try to play like Vai

Hi Friend,

So I’ve been playing around with this
new “Song Surgeon 3″…

(get it fa-fa-fa-phree for a limited time here):


Revisiting some of my favorite guitar licks
and solos.

The other day I was decoding some Satriani
licks from one of my favorite solos.
I sent you an email about it 🙂

Today I went for a Steve Vai tune called
“Hand on Heart” with one of the most outrageous
guitar solos ever put on tape.

Yes, I was able to hear what was going
on during the super fast part of the solo,
thanks to Song Surgeon.

Basically he’s using a wide stretch on the
high E string and tapping out some notes
at the same time.

He’s playing notes on the 7th , 9th, and 11th
frets, while tapping the 12th fret.

Then he switches it up and starts tapping
on the 14th fret.

The crazy thing is how’s he’s mixing up the
timing… There’s 16th notes and also dotted
32nd notes.


Obviously, its a little complex and involved 🙂

I didn’t tab out the whole thing because I’m a bit
short on time here tonight, but you get the idea.

And no, I don’t dare to try to play like Vai, however…

It’s amazing is that I’m actually able to
figure out what he’s doing because I can slow
it down as much as I need to.

Remember, for a limited time you get Song Surgeon
free (a $59 value) here:

Now if you wanna to try to play like Vai,
you’ll definitely need Silvio’s course
called “Virtuoso Guitar Secrets”. it’s some
strong stuff – just what the Dr. ordered. 🙂

Ok maybe you won’t be shredding like Vai overnight
(In fact you definitely won’t), BUT… you’ll be
on the path to being a shredder.

(I’m personally working on this course now myself
to beef up my own chops.)

Why get it now? Well, with this new dealio,
you get song surgeon with it.

You can also choose the Flamenco Guitar Course,
the Bluegrass Course, or the Rock Riffs/Metal
Guitar package.

4 killer choices, and they all come with Song Surgeon 3.0
, which is an invaluable learning tool as well.

But the deal is almost over…Scoop it up now.

Have a great week,

Claude Johnson
