This is a music video from a couple of years ago, but I got a Guitar Center catalog in the mail today with Steve Vai and Joe Satriani on the cover, and that made me think of it again. I've never been huge into Steve Vai, exactly, although I do believe I owned his solo Passion and Warfare album for most of the 1990's. I was pretty heavily into Joe Satriani during that time, his Flying in a Blue Dream record is still one of my all-time favorites. But there's certainly no mistaking that Vai is one of the all-time great lead electric guitarists in rock. It's amazing to me to watch him play like he does in this video. I haven't heard anything about Orianthi since I first saw this, but then again there are always massive gaps in my awareness of goings-on in the music biz. She's obviously a massive talent as well. It's pure joy for me to watch these two interact musically here. Enjoy!
