Steve Vai - Inside The Harmony Hut Studio

iGuitar was recently invited to join Steve Vai at his 'Harmony Hut' home studio to get an exclusive insight into the writing and recording process behind his new 'The Story Of Light' album. The studio is located behind Steve's home in Encino, and although he still maintains his Mothership studio in the Hollywood Hills, he & his family moved to Encino in early '97 so this is where Steve spends most of his time, writing and recording.

We talked at length about the techniques and inspirations that went into his forthcoming release and Steve showed us first hand some of the riffs and solos from the record. Subscribe to iGuitar Magazine at the top of the page to be first in the queue to see the videos in full. In the meantime, here's some photos we took of the studio and Steve's vast guitar collection.
