How can someone look so good and play like that. Just listened to Steve Vai together with Orianthi

And I thought there was just Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart.

Amazing how alive the Blues is.

I have to say I don't really get the fuss about Orianthi. I hadn't heard any of her playing that I'd really liked yet, though I certainly haven't heard nearly all of it. That video with Vai was a step up from anything I'd heard before, at least there seemed to be some direction and phrasing to the playing instead of what I'd call mostly wanking without going anywhere. But the Voodoo Chile thing was more indicative of her live playing I'd heard before, mostly just noise.

I'd actually say "guitar god" music is at the top of my favourite genres. I have nothing but love for Hendrix, SRV, Clapton, Satriani, Petrucci, Paco De Lucia, etc. Oddly enough Vai is not even close to being a favourite, even though it's obvious he has loads of technical talent - he just doesn't speak to me much either with where his compositions go. Then you have guys like Malmsteen, I was totally blown away by Far Beyond The Sun when I heard it, but then lately I've finally heard the rest of his stuff, and wow, it's all just the exact same thing over and over - he's what I'd consider an insanely talented player technically but doesn't go anywhere interesting with it, it's actually quite depressing.

Never heard of Ana before, but that speaks to me much better, way more tasteful/emotional playing. Sure sounded like Riviera Paradise channeled though. Always interested to find more interesting artists in this genre. Anyway, who am I to criticize, but it's fun to talk about this stuff anyway.
