Goes well with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYnH58Ur3tA (make sure to check out the other “w/ drumses” in David Dockery’s channel!)

These kinds of videos always remind me of this early Steve Vai track (which is a good representation of how he got a job with Zappa)-- guitar comes in about at about the 1:07 mark. Not exactly the same, but I remember being impressed at the ingenuity and tenacity of transcribing all her words as notes.


#4

He’s my kind’a mutant.


#5

well he won’t be jumping any bridges then…


#6

He’s always been a good-hearted person, like the rest of the world’s Happy Mutants.


#7

Also a good illustration of the hidden rhythm, melody and cadence behind expert public speaking.


#8

In that vid he’s got a “human who is actually a muppet” vibe, animated and furry and goofy eyeballs.

He’s so much fun. Gotta love him.


#9

I’ve never heard that track! Must brush up on my Vai, I guess.


#10

Agreed. I’m really glad that pop culture seems to have come around to him again. There was a period there where he seemed to be a punchline and a target of some people’s deeply felt hatred. Even if one found him grating, I could never understand the vitriol.
