    part starting At 2:25 is badass. First half of song could be better

  • Mike Meegan

    Break outs sound Vai.

  • Sean Coop

    Haven’t really listened to much John 5 since Requiem… and as I can see, he still hasn’t written any new solos….

  • Tattking69

    Big time Vai..

    Malmsteen anyone? the 2:25 riff is good but yeah… bedrock of the song is good… but just needs more to be honest… what it needs actually is all those little things that make you hum along… I know thats weird to say.

    I wish he could do more than the same scale he seems to do on every song. Obviously he can play but writing songs doesn’t seem to be his strength.
