    Steve Vai should get an Oscar for acting like he can't play that part.

      Are you insane? Steve Vai couldn't play the slide like that in a million years. In fact, only one person can play the slide like that - Ry Cooder. Ry played all the kids parts and composed the soundtrack for the film.

      Made 5.8 mil in box office. Now has 50 mil views. You take half of that and multiply it by average ticket price (about 4 bucks) and its over 50 million. Crazy how the entertainment industry has went from having such low audiences that well marketed, hollywood productions with a popular lead actor can't gain enough traction to get off the ground, to now over 50 million people (over 10 mil more than the entire population of Canada) watching a clip from it for free and enjoying it. All due to the internet.

He has the fame while more talented players like Manuel Fernandes still don't get the recognition they deserve due to peoples' interests. He may have contributed to a lot of things, but a lot of guitarists outclass him in creativity and technique.

      Considering Macchio is not a guitarist I think he mimed pretty well. He had guitar lessons for 2 hours a day to try and get him to play fairly authentically. He obviously can't compete with Vai, who's one of the best of all time. It's a film.

    La escena es muy hermosa, sobre todo que Ralph representa el blues fundamental y el estilo moderno que representa Vai, siendo el blues igualmente una formula ya en sí potente y estéticamente hermosa, de modo que es lindo ver cómo debajo de los rifts de Vai (que suena muy "metalero", técnicamente muy complejo y espectacular) está el fundamento, la idea que le dio origen, la esencia del blues.

      @Anon Who Errrrrrrrrr, wrong-ish. According to American Blues Scene's website: 'Did Macchio actually play guitar in the movie? - The short answer is yes, in some parts. Director Walter Hill had hired guitarist Arlen Roth as a musical consultant and to teach Macchio to play, sort of. Roth visited Macchio’s home, four days a week for months teaching the young actor blues techniques, including finger-picking and slide. Although Ralph was set on actually playing in the film, Roth, Cooder and Hill knew that would be impossible, but Roth tutored Macchio well enough for him to fake the parts on screen. Fusco adds, “He (Roth) was first and foremost the guy that Ry sought out to assign to Ralph as his guitar mentor and ‘crash course’ teacher. They pretty much lived together for the few months leading up to production. Arlen was also on set all the time and a part of the amazing musical pedigree we were absorbing every day, down there in the Delta. Ry and Steve Vai are mostly responsible for the licks we hear when Ralph plays. But I want to emphasize that Ralph did much of his own playing and it was impressive. He is a smart and diligent kid. Wait, he’s not a kid any more, but he still looks the same.”' I had also read about that ages ago in a guitar magazine, before the internet became a thing.

      @Brandi Barrera steve vai was in a couple of EXTREMLY famous and profitable bands: white snake and david lee roth formerly of van halen. Hes the guitarist david chose to follow in eddy van halens footsteps when dave left van halen. THIS should give you an idea of just how great steve vai plays because eddy was 1 of the greatest guitar players who ever lived.period..Hope this helps you out. ROCK ON

      He didn’t actually play for real, he just mimicked it, and made it look real. Steve Vai and Ry Cooder played all of the solos in this battle

    As a guitar player, I was impressed how Ralph Macchio was able to convincingly mime guitar playing. When I first saw this movie I was convinced Macchio played guitar for real.

      @Swampster70 you missed my point, I play guitar, so I know what guitar playing looks like. And 98% of guitar miming in movies and TV is super fake. And not just guitar but drums and other instruments too. For example just watch any movie like when they are in a country club or something and there's a jazz band playing music, watch the "musicians," and their miming isn't even close to what you're hearing. That's why I was impressed with Macchio, he for the most part at least looks pretty convincing to amateur guitar players, and probably even more convincing to non musicians, so to actually look convincing is a rare thing.

      @Alex H Well theres humble and theres humble. When your walking around the land of gods, things are different. Vai has a reputation to uphold, so encountering Guthrie would probably be pretty nerve wracking, because Guthrie is frighteningly good. I could definately see why Via might get a bit crazy eyed around it. But I get the feeling if a 10yo kid came up and said "I just started playing guitar, can I show you this song from the 70s I just learned", and let rip on a hamfisted version of smoke on the water, theres a good chance Vai would stop and listen, tell the kid it sounds great and encourage him to keep practicing. I've never seen Vai shit on a beginner. He wants kids to learn and grow up to be gunslingers like him.
