Steve Vai – Eugene’s Trick Bag Video Guitar Lessons

FavoriteLoadingBookmark this Lesson. In this video lesson series we will take a note-for-note look at Steve Vai's "Eugene's Trick Bag" from the movie "Crossroads".

If you have never seen this movie you should check it out. There is great guitar playing all through it but this piece of music is the grand finale of the movie. It comes when Jack Butler (Steve Vai) battles Eugene (Ralph Macchio) in a guitar head cutting dual. It is a fantastic scene.

Anyway, the piece we have here is the music that Eugene plays to defeat Jack Butler. It is VERY popular with guitarists and probably the most requested song here at So here it is!!

This video series consists of 3 videos total, the performance video and 2 note-for-note video lessons covering each section of the piece. This piece is crazy fast so take your time getting it up to speed. 😀
