    In response to your message: No, I cannot play the song at the set speed but I do know that it is possible. It actually varies to the speed at which i can play it. The first part before the main sequnce is very easy for me so i can play that up ...(more)

    watch the movie "crossroads" starring Ralph Maccio (not Brittany Spears) and you will see Steve Vai play it in the ending. P.S. its not as hard as you might think.

    If you have ever seen Yngwie live, then you would know that he can probably play it even faster. The stretches are extremely hard at first, BUT after a few short weeks of practice your fingers will be well broken in and you will begin to be able...(more)

    I will probably be putting on the other parts of Crossroads within about a week. If you like the duel in this movie check out my lesson titled Nicollo Paganini's Caprice #5. It is the origional version of the song.

    You are absolutely correct about the fingerings. You see, the only time that i ever get the chance to work on the actual music is usually about 2:00am, and most of the time i am very tired and make subtle mistakes, not to mention this one. Anoth...(more)

    Thank you very much. It was extremely hard to tab that song due to the finger-melting speeds they use for the actual song. You have read my mind and I have already started tabbing The Legend of Zelda's main theme. This is not so hard to do aside...(more)

    Thank you for your information about Nicollo Paganini. I am very deeply into classical music and enjoy listen to / playing it. Some of my other favorites to play are Canon in D, and Moonlight Sonata. If you could give the name of a good classica...(more)
