Ry Cooder played the slide/blues portion of Ralph Macchio solo and Steve Vai played the Classical portion.

Ry Cooder was also the film's musical Director. In 1984 the Director Walter Hill contacted Arlen Roth who was hired as the film's musical Consultant showing Macchio how to play the guitar while creating guitar parts for the film that Ralph Macchio could mime too.

Roth was the one who really created the majority of the guitar parts of the film, while Bill Kanengiser did the classical playing throughout.
My Dad played me this on VHS when I was a kid and I watched it over and over. Thought it was the coolest thing ever. Now I have a 4 yr old son myself and I showed it to him on YouTube and he’s obsessed with watching it as well, constantly requesting that I put it on for him. Life is so cool sometimes. 😀

So just how good is this? I've been listening to this kind of music my whole life so I'm familiar with it but I'm not a musician. I know this is good but is this master level stuff of just a few pretty good guitarists who know how to riff?
There's a chunk of the performance missing at 2:15.

I remember the 1984 guitar player magazine had a little plastic 45 you put 20 cents on and it played "The Attitude song" from his album flexible. it blew us all away
Vai finished it all up with a Jimi at the Isle of Wight move.

There should be a TV series where Ralph Macchio's character has to defeat the G3, with Steve Vai as the final boss but to get there he has to mess with other guitar legends first! :O

this scene STILL gives me goosbumps
Seriously think this film brought blues to the world and they have been drinking deep ever since.
Did you edit this with a pair of scissors. Was a lot better as it was.
