I was wondering what you guys think his best song is, and can anyone give me a link to a site that has full mp3's of his songs.

If you're new to his work, start with Passion And Warfare. "For the Love of God" is a must have. I'm not sure I can pick a best song. I must say, though, he is the only musician I know where I like every one of his songs.

Once you become familiar with him, then you can tackle his newest one, The Ultra Zone. But if you don't have a good Vai background, you'll get hurt listening to this one...

As for MP3's, I haven't found any.

Vai has got to be my all time fav. guitarist. When I hear him play I'll get chills running down my spine. The guy knows how to be soooo melodic sometimes it scares me. As far as best songs I'd have to go with Ekstasis. You can't really pick one but definately check out "Passion and Warfare", he did that album right after he left David Lee Roth. Also check his site out he has some awesome lessons in there.
