Star-Spangled Banner

I’ve been teaching one of my students how to play the Star-Spangled Banner. This student is really into it. It was his suggestion actually. I’m hoping to be able to use this song to show him a variety of playing techniques: slide, hammer-on, pull-offs, bends, 3-note per string runs, etc. I’m pretty psyched about it.

I found this video of 3 great guitarist each having a different take on it.  Which version do you like best? (I actually remember seeing Vai play that live on MTV.  Wow, I’m dating myself!)
