Weekend Musical Diversion: Tender Surrender

March 12, 2011

He’s played in Frank Zappa’s band as a teenager and has played in Whitesnake, Alcatrazz and David Lee Roth’s band. But Steve Vai’s greatest legacy has come as a solo artist. Whether he’s playing a dozen notes a second or something slower and melodic (like this song), Steve Vai never ceases to amaze me. Part metaphysical madman, part fretboard speed demon – Vai is 100 percent guitar virtuoso. I love his expressiveness as he feels each notes he plays…it reminds me that if you happen to be doing something you love, make it obvious.

Have a great weekend…
