This here shows just how huge Steve Vai shreds. He’s definitely up there with some of the master shredders. Quite possibly “King Shred” himself! You see, Steve recently had surgery on his finger, which is kind of important if you’re a “master shredder” guitar player, and while he may still be recovering, that hasn’t kept him from “shredding” out some new tunes.
With one hand.
Steve Vai just revealed a jaw-dropping new video for the instrumental track “Knappsack.”
Vai shows why he one of rock’s most respected guitarist while proving you don’t need two hands to be able to shred.
The guitarist recently revealed that he suffered the trigger finger injury while holding a chord so long that when he finished he felt a pain in his hand that resembled that of a strain. Vai also recently underwent a shoulder surgery as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from working on new music.
He currently has an “acoustic vocal” record in the works, while also working on three instrumental releases, compiling a Generation Axe live album and adding to his Sound Theories orchestral series.
