Miscellaneous Stuff

For most of his songs, in one way or the other, or in many ways at once, Vai uses the unparalelled abilities of the Eventide H3000 Harmonizer. In some songs, like Erotic Nightmares, or the beginning of Animal, when it sounds like two Steve Vais are playing perfectly synchronized, that's not two separate tracks laid down individually by Steve, that's one track, split into two frequencies by the Harmonizer.
