The first G3 DVD. Picture quality isn't the best I've seen but the sound is amazing! Check out the notorious Eric Johnson's performance in "Manhattan". The final jam is good but, hey, the vocals are terrible. If you like guitar virtuosos, this video is for you!

When you watch this video....you find a lot of histrionics and stuff...and some fast fingerwork...finally you cannot help but compare... Satch will blow you away..and his playing seems so effortless..wow...with Flying in a blue dream and Summer song.. other than that...Manhattan by Eric Johnson and For the Love of God by Steve Vai...were liked by me...I think highly of Eric Johnson....for infusing some melody amidst all the dive bombs.... I could not appreciate their jamming..though..I think fan's of instrumental music will appreciate the effort more....

First i have to say i do like these players but this video includes too much showing playing technique. Both Vai and Satriani do that here although their sets are good despite of that. Eric Johnson plays with style and the ending jam is not as good as i expected afterall.

This video will blow your mind. It features key moments from each stars performance and a final section featuring all three jamming together on three popular classics: Freddie King's "Goin Down" Zappa's "My Guitar Wants to KIll your Mama", and Hendrix's "Red House". Their solo performances are also great, but the final jam is worth it all. Each guy also takes a turn at vocals, which I didn't know they could do. For some crazy whammy work, and really fast fingers, check this out.

Pretty good but fans of EJ will feel short-changed I think. His songs are shorter compared to the extendo jams of Vai and Satch -- at least that was my impression. Vai and Satch both sort of beat the audience to death with the guitar stunts and full-bore Marshall grind. And who aside from Vai can have a simulated orgasm with his guitar? "Well hello Mr. Fancy-pants."
