Highly Strung

  • This track from Australian guitarist Orianthi's second album, Believe, features one of her heroes, axeman Steve Vai. She gushed to AOL's Spinner: "I've known [Vai] since I was 15. My first support was opening for him at this club in Adelaide, Australia and I was so nervous because it was my first support, let alone opening for one of the best guitar players in the world. I just respect him immensely and look up to him and you never stop learning off guitar players like Steve Vai and Santana - they're my two favorite guitar players." Orianthi added: "Getting to do a song with Steve for the record was just awesome and making a video with him was really cool. It has a real sort of '80s feel to it and was really simple, but it really focuses on my playing."
