An awe-inspiring display or guitar prowess
on 13 July 2007
This is a fantastic DVD featuring three of the truly great rock guitarists of our time. Each individual set is fairly short, 3 songs each for Vai & Satriani, with the new boy in terms of the G3 format, Petrucci, showcasing two tracks from his (relatively) recently released solo album.
All three sets are excellent, although a couple of the Vai tracks are probably neither his best known nor best loved tracks. In the overall context, though, that doesn't really matter as any song he performs manages to show what an amazing musician he is.
For those unfamiliar with John Petrucci, he is Dream Theater's guitarist and he has every right to be on stage with Vai & Satriani. He is a technical master but also capable of playing with plenty of feel.
The highlight of this disc has to be the three-song jam at the end. It is quite simply jawdropping. Expect a barrage of completely over the top playing which will bring a smile to your face every time. Each guitarist amazes at different points but, for me, Vai just about takes 1st prize due to his sheer inventiveness.
This DVD is a must for all rock guitar lovers, particularly given the silly asking price. Highly recommended.
