'''Steve Vai''' is, like his mentor, Music/JoeSatriani, an [[{{instrumentals}} instrumental rock]] and ProgressiveRock guitarist from UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. His first major claim to fame was playing for and transcribing songs for Music/FrankZappa, but he has an extensive solo discography that takes many cues from both Zappa and Satriani.
