Thanks, watched the documentary over the weekend, some good stuff on there.

What is the tune Steve Vai is talking about learning from Frank over a period of months. I know the melody, but can't get my head around the title. It is at the 1:22:36 moment of the movie, found on Youtube.

Anyway, amazing documentary. I learned a lot.

I watched it the other night and thought it was an excellent documentary. Really pleased that it dug deep into the period up until the early 70's and didn't skip over the original Mothers.
Also pleased that it didn't focus on all the eras of Frank's that I really don't like.
I liked the approach. The makers of the documentary got the fact that he was a composer and highly intelligent man.
I wish I could express what I meant better :(

There's a link in the first post in this thread, but you may not be able to see it - you might have to get to 10 posts first. Go to youtube and search for Frank Zappa A pioneer of Future Music
