‘Guitar God’ Steve Vai has dived into work right at the start of the new year. The three time Grammy Award-winner posted on Facebook that he was in search of “guitar brutalities” while wishing all his fans a Happy New Year.

“Hey Folks, Happy New Year again… and again… and forever!” the Italian American rockstar greeted.

Vai, who released Where the Other Wilds Are in 2010 following the 2009’s Where the Wild Things Are, has revealed that the new year will also bring in another album.

“I am just right now starting to work on a new record… right… now!
I’m diving into the infinity shelf and letting it run all over the place. Looking for exotic guitar brutalities.
I’ll keep you posted on the preposterous.
Thanks for tuning in,” the post on the social media site added.

Earlier, the Guitar International Magazine awarded the title of Guitar DVD of the Year to ‘Steve Vai Live in Minneapolis: Where the Wild Things Are’.

“Seeing Steve Vai live is an experience all unto itself, and his latest live release Where the Wild Things Are couldn’t have captured that essence any better. Though the album was released at the end of 2009, this baby had some legs and continued to amaze and inspire viewers throughout the past 12 months, so we decided to include in the 2010 edition of the awards,” the magazine said on the 2-hours-40-minutes-and-27 tracks DVD.

Besides this, Vai grabbed the ‘Guitar Concert of the Year Award’ for performances on the Experience Hendrix Tour, which “allowed fans to see some of their favorite players pay tribute to a man that has inspired countless millions of guitarists and fan across the globe over the past four decades.”

The Philanthropist has also reminded aspiring guitarists that they need to get their entry into the Steve Vai scholarship competition by Friday, January 7 to be considered. The Guitar Institute, part of London’s Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, has tied up with Steve Vai for the scholarship.

  1. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  2. In fact I noticed that there were no sites with AdSense ads for at least the first 3 pages. Plus the sites with AdSense were only using 1 ad unit at the bottom of the home page (there were very few of them in the top 5 pages).

  15. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I really like the piece of writing on your site. But I am utilising Firefox on a machine running version 8.x of Ubuntu and the UI aren’t quite satisfactory. Not a big deal, I can still basically read the articles and search for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of tough to apply with the config I’m running. Keep up the superb work!
