Joe Satriani is one of the greatest inspirations on the planet for guitarists.
A wonderful player and writer, he’s also a truly remarkable teacher with a gift for explaining things so that you just get them (and can go and use them).
That’s not just idle talk. He is the guy who taught, among others:
- Steve Vai (I mean, come on… Steve Vai!!)
- Kirk Hammett
- Alex Skolnick
- Larry LaLonde
- Rick Hunolt
- Andy Timmons
- Charlie Hunter
- Kevin Cadogan
Here’s a great lesson from Joe on using modes in your music making. This is Part One (Part Two to follow.)
