  • January 24, 2008 Joe Satriani in his purest form.

    Great stuff for all guitarist who want to add a little of the enigmatic renderings of Joe Satriani under their belt. The title says it all. He'll take you on a journey through once, unexplored musical galaxies. One's own experience with this music will open up the creative...

    juices and take your guitar playing to a different level.

    Yes, this is THE Satch book to own if you want the best of Joe's songs with about 90% of his best techniques. Of course, the "Power Cosmic" arrpeggio is not included since he only used it again in "The Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing" (from "Flying In A...

    Blue Dream").

    Difficulty Level:
  • December 01, 2005 "Playing" with an Alien

    I am serious when I say Alien, Joe Satriani is an ALIEN on the guitar. I've managed to learn all the songs, and in every way they've improved my technique. The transcriptions are extremely accurate. It also has a lot of blues(which I love) and the riffs...

    really bring out the emotion of the guitar and actually makes it sound like the guitar is singing. Joe is one of the most talented player of our time and if you are a fan of a virtuoso sound this is a must.(like I said if you're into the virtuoso sound here are some artists you might like: Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Billy Sheehan, Paul Gilbert, and John Petrucci)
