THIS IS IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
STEVE VAI
1996 G3 SOLO

This took me forever to tab out.
My name is Sam and I am 13 years
old and someday i want to be able
to play like, if not better than
steve vai. He is my idol and this
solo is amazing. There are so many
comments on youtube of people
saying wow i wish i could play
this so i made a tab for everyone.
This is close to perfect, about 95%,
apart from the big sweeps near the
start, i couldnt figure them out properly.
the coolest part is the tapping
and i dont know how to tab out
the whammy bar parts like \2.5
and that so i just wrote whammy
above the notes. Look it up on
youtube "Steve Vai 1996 G3 solo".
Its Amazing. Please Rate and comment.
Ive also added the time's (0:37) to
make it esier to understand.
Cheers
