All the time. It's easier in California than it was in Philly.

And if they stay 'till the end, hey, I let 'em. Soon as I'm done my set, I want to kick back too.

for exemple:
Hour 1 - exercises
2 - scales
3 -chords
4 ear training
5 sight reading
6 composing songwriting
7 music theories

etc..
you practice 10 hours a day and rest your fingers on the other hours

Butthe best things are his ideas. I'll make you guys a big favor :) and write the final part of the article by Steve Vai:

"Becoming a rock star, a movie star, a powerful executive, or a rich and famous anything is easy compared to controlling the mind so that it stays focused without iterruption on the music within. I do not claim to have that muchcontrol, but I'm working on it. Some people have an abundance of natural talent and are more gifted in soem areas than others. I'm not naturally gifted; I had to work very hard to develop my chops and techniques...

...I think Being a musician and being abl to paly an instrument is about the coolest thing in the world. Creating music (and specially playing the guitar) is most rewarding when its based on pure passion. It's our birthright to play an instrument and to create


Of course you can toss the whole concept of this article and just do it your own way. However somethings don't change. The amount of focus, passion and time you put in are going to be reflected in your art. Whatever the case, I hope you find yoursoul in it all. THats the payoff."

Words by Steve Vai



I don't know what you guys think about that but it makes me rush to my guitar on the spot, so that's what i'm doing now...

See you guys later

He's one of the most musically appropriate people I've ever met...I've told him that any time he wants to step onstage with me, he is invited to - and he can make any sound he wants to, I know it'll fit.

Most professional musicians will see the daily practice (as much as 6 hours per day) as their daily work, the musical equivalent of driving a bus, or delivering post, or...

There was a time when I would religiously guarantee myself a minimum hour each day. Now I often forget where the damned thing is! (That could explain a few things!)

As for "a three-time state fiddle... can show up whenever she wants to!" - there is never an excuse for discourteous behaviour. Never.
