Format: Paperback
The backing tracks and book/tab are totally usable and great. The best way to to this is either to use a Tascam cd trainer for guitar to slow things down or use Sony Acid and import a track, create some markers and loop a section. Adjust tempo and practice. When I had time I learnt Tender Surrender almost completely. Yes, it's true that lead guitar is not on the CD in any broken down form. But the package clearly says backing tracks/naked vamps. Of course you have to have access to the actual Audio CD of the songs also. I thought that I could never play any thing Steve Vai. This package proved me wrong. I also experimented with other songs from this book. Musically the concepts are unique and fresh and totally Steve Vai. Any intermediate guitar player will benefit quite fast from this book/cd and beginners can also learn. As I did a few years ago. You don't have to start a song from the beginning. Go to any part of the song and try to identify it on the original album. Read the tabs and try it. Some books identify the time from the CD over the tab. This one I think does not. Still a very good learning tool. Also there are very helpful chord and scale diagrams for certain scales (not all) used in the book. Definitely recommended. Also you will be SHOCKED to see how complicated it looks on paper but is just SO simple to actually play. Just don't give up !

Format: Paperback
A few years ago, a friend of mine challenged me to learn to play "Juice". Now I've been playing for 30 years and am adequately good, but it's just for fun: I have plenty of other commitments and to me, this was way beyond my league and I knew it. But my friend kept on plugging away at me, and in the end I started listening to the track at half-speed with Windows Media Player: still impossible!

Finally, I discovered this book and it all became clear. At the rate of a few bars a week, I put the whole piece together and a year later, I can do it! If cloning Vai is where you're at, there is nothing better. Since immersing myself in all things Vai, I have met him twice, and I know he finds the "robot copier" approach rather sad. I don't think he realises what a haul it is for a mere bedroom guitarist to approach his own level of technical ability, and there are very few people who can also be original and creative at that high standard. But then, he DOES play for 8 hours a day, every day...

The book is excellent - but don't kid yourself, it is WORK! But if you put in the effort, the reward is extremely satisfying. Good Luck!

The cd with backing tracks was broken. I had been better if the package were sent into a cardboard protection

Excellent TAB for Steve Vai's Alien Love Secrets album. All my fave songs, with great details for each song. Now if only I could play them like him?!. :)
