He had compiled these songs into five separate collections titled Naked Tracks. Alongside these tracks he had offered views, opinions, and suggestions on how other guitarists could approach playing along with them.
Steve Vai designed this set for guitar players to improvise over. He removed the lead guitar from selected tracks from the following albums:.

Some of these stripped-down tracks will also make good beds for voiceover recordings.
Fans of all things Steve Vai will be salivating at the prospect of a new series entitled Naked Tracks that contains mixes of Vai classics without the lead guitar parts.
