    First of all, BIG fan! Here is a video of Steve playing with his band, String Theories... Song is called "Now We Run."

    Steve Vai is one of the most virtuous guitar players, having played for more than thirty years. Don't believe me? Go look him up on Youtube...

    I don't believe "virtuous" is the word you're looking for... :)

    Not to sound rude, but written words don't relay emotions or emphasis very well, but... may I ask, what it is I am looking for? :D

    I'm guessing you were trying to acknowledge Mr. Vai's virtuosity -- his skill and craftsmanship as an instrumentalist. That's derived from the Italian word "virtuoso"

    "Virtuous" refers to his moral standards and/or his chastity; that's derived from the word "virtue".

    Saw Steve Vai in live performance this year. Just awesome! I knew he's virtuoso but never thought that kind of VIRTUOSO. He plays for people, for audience and not for money. His performance, show and playing skills are awesome. Visit if you can. It's one chance in life to see this great Guitarist:)

    Steve Vai was taught from the start by local guitar teacher Joe Satriani. How great is that? They were from here, (long Island) the next county over from me. Wish I could have had lessons from a teacher like that...

    And then he continued to learn under Frank Zappa. Can you imagine how cool that had to be? Challenging, to be sure, but cool as hell.
