A DVD FOR ALL TO SEE!, April 26 2004
The first time I saw this DVD was at a friend's house and after the first song I know I had to getg it and loved it ever since! I purchased it twice in the last year since everytime I let someone use it I never get it back, so I'm going for three. Of all the perfomances to watch, my favorite was Joe Satriani. I am a mediocre guitar player so I'm allways up to seeing a good solid live performance and that is exactly what Joe's set was from beginning to end(Cool #9 and Summer Song are awesome!). Eric Johnson takes a clean cut style and performs three songs that all have a very distinct yet similar style that only a master like himself can pull off(Manhattan and SRV blew me away). I have been familiar with Vai longer than any of the other two and in my opinon if you want to see him at his best you might want to consider the G3 live in Denver DVD to really absorb the kind of level he can play at(For The Love of God was pretty intense). The G3 jam at the end is pretty solid especially the nine minute work out of Jimmi's Red House is something to witness. I have to say, overall, that this is the best guitar playing trifecta I've ever seen. My only regret is that I wasn't there for the live show. So if you like music at any level this is definately the DVD to watch.
