Did Angus Young Say Steve Vai Has No Rhythm?
Hey everyone, it might be subjective, but I believe that rhythm is more than 50% of what makes up music.
Think about it, if someone starts singing a random melody, how many people will jump and start dancing vs if a drummer starts playing a funky beat?
The time and groove make us move!
Cutting another musician down about their timing is about as bad as telling someone they are ugly. Not a good move.
So did Angus actually accuse Steve Vai of having bad rhythm?
Watch the video and find out.
I have included one of Steve Vai’s more intricate rhythms to demonstrate his prowess with time.
Not that it needs to be proven as Vai did spend time with musical genius Frank Zappa back in his formative years.
The transcription/tab of the musical example is hard coded into the video below and well worth learning if you want to improve your rhythm chops.
