Interview: Sounding Off with Guitarist Steve Vai

Rick Beato premiered his new show Sounding Off by interviewing legendary guitarist Steve Vai. The interview covers everything from the music industry to his advice from Frank Zappa to polyrhythms to nested tuplets. The music business advice is covered in the beginning and is very insightful – keep your publishing & live below your means. There’s also plenty of meat for the guitar geeks as well.  I wouldn’t have posted the interview if I didn’t enjoy it!

Steve was hired by Frank Zappa at age 18 to transcribe everything from lead sheets to orchestral scores. He is a 3-time Grammy winner who has recorded and toured with Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake.
