For the commitment required, you cannot beat the guitar practice to pussy ratio.
Steve Vai performed both parts.
This kid is amusing... He gets more than you.
Canon in D
Steve Vai's "Eugenese Trick bag" is a good song, not really that hard to play though.
As for that Canon in D, look up the original revised arrangement by Jerry C, he is much better. That Funtwo guy just slops through it.
For sheer musicality and technical ability though, it doesnt get better than Shawn Lane. He could play faster than Rusty Cooley and Francesco Farreri, and was an amazing composer and arranger.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2Bb67nem4U
Here he is playing Jonas Hellborg's "Serpents and Pigs", unfortunately Jonas isnt out there playing it, but Lane shows off some devastating chops.
Here he is playing the end of Jonas Hellborgs "Rice with the Angels" and seguing it into Hellborg's "Abstract logic". Very spiritual, Hellborg's music has a strong indian classical element to it, and for sheer complexity, depth and spirituality, you cannot possibly top Carnatic and Qawaali music.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoqRENuuLrs
