I'm gonna make this thread for Joe Satriani posts. I'm a huge fan of Joe and I saw him live at G3. He's a truly amazing guitarist.

So any Satch info, critisizm, comments, thoughts, whatever...please post here.

PS: If you got nothing to say but something stupid like: "Satriani sux!!!! Vai's pwns Joe times 1000!!!" Please keep it out of this forum. :thumb:

I like Joe, mainly because he writes awesome songs without having to go back to pointless wankage.

Yeah. I like Vai, Malmsteen, and Eric Johnson, but with Satch, it's like he uses different styles on every album that he's made.

i never bought an album from him. i downloaded only a few songs, some fans recommended.

I don't think that Satch can really be classed as shred, when shred contains things such as Malmsteen and Friedman.

I thought that Is There Love In Space? sounded pretty tired. There were only a few really good tracks, If I could Fly being the most notable.

Overall I like Satch. I just wish he would experiment a bit more with his music because he is starting to get a bit stale. I wouldn't mind another Engines of Creation

I love watching Joe, but I cannot listen to him for fun. I have a hard time listening to virtuosos just for the sake of listening, unless the name is Jason Becker.

He's an incredible guitarist and writer, though.

I have Surfing with the Alien, that's the album with the Silver Surfer on the front right?. Well I picked it up because it was going cheap, didn't really enjoy it, though there was a track I think I really enjoyed on it. May rout it out again and give it a spin.

Have a video of him playing a track as well which is pretty bad ***.

I love Satriani's music. One of the few virtuosos who remembers that there's actually someone else who is going to listen to their music - it's not fret wankery like Malmsteen. Fav tracks are Surfing With the Alien, Satch Boogie, Sleep Walk and Chords of Life.

Truth. Satch's Peavey XXX tone sucks compared to the stuff he had on Crystal Planet, as well. He should go all-out Jeff Beck style and incorporate techno even more, get his songs played at some dances and clubs. I would dance to Satriani over stupid hip-hop any day.

If I hear another stupid I-IV-V blues jam on his albums I'm gonna barf. Seriously, Satch is not a bluesman, and he's not a classic rock musician, but that's the vibe he's been trying for on the last few albums. He used to be the "alien" spacey, futuristic dude of the guitar world, but he's rapidly beginning to cash in on nostalgiac sounds to gain "rock" cred. In my opinion, "Engines of Creation" was a fantastic step, and if he could incorporate the ultra-melodic metally stuff with the techno instruments, he could really have something. "The Power Cosmic Part I" in particular should have been a sign of things to come, but now his tones and his playing are so limp-kneed.

Am I the only one who thinks Marty Friedman is mislabeled as a shredder? Sure, with Cacophony and his first solo album he did a bunch of shred, but after that he never really did any shredding. His work with Megadeth definitely wasn't really shredding, just sweet stuff, and his solo stuff after that was NOWHERE near shred.

But back to Joe Satriani, I liked his work up until Crystal Planet, after that it seemed to start getting stale. But songs like Surfing With The Alien, Echo, The Extremist, and Crystal Planet all rock.

I really like the tracks The Crush of Love, Always With Me, Always With You, Mind Storm, Midnight, Day At The Beach, Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing and Tears in the Rain. His self-titled I don't really dig. And his vocal tracks are rather meh eg. I Believe.

His Deth stuff bordered on shred, and he is capable of shredding with the best of them, so he gets in.

Satch is great, yeah.

I think he means that more often than not Satch will concentrate on the melody off the song itself, rather than impressive guitar trickery. He usually writes from the point of view of what's good for the song.

Truth. Satch's Peavey XXX tone sucks compared to the stuff he had on Crystal Planet, as well. He should go all-out Jeff Beck style and incorporate techno even more, get his songs played at some dances and clubs. I would dance to Satriani over stupid hip-hop any day.

If he doesn't try something new and fresh on his next release I am going to be comletely dissapointed.

I love the whole new album, it fits my tastes exactly for when I'm in a non-vocal mood. I've listened to it so many times, more than many other things I have, and it hasn't even been out long. I had a few of his other albums before, but they didn't click with me in the same way.

Thanks for saying it was a good idea for making a Satch thread. :)

I agree with you that it won't last very long. There on way to many "METALLICA AND SLPIKNOT RULE!!!!!!!" fans of R&M.

It'd be cool if Satch joined Deep Purple even though I never really got into Purple after Ritchie Blackmore left (the second time).

I don't know if Satch would really suit playing in Deep Purple. He could certainly make it sound good, but it would really be a waste.

Satriani should probably just do his own thing.

Deep Purple should just retire, unless Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord come back to reunite. :thumb:

He sings on a few other songs as well, though he doesn't have the best voice ever.
He also sings on the G3 covers.

Joe Satriani is one of the few guitarists that I can actually listen to as an instrumental. His songs are so melodic, and I hold deep respect for him as his music is truly something. I think he should stay instrumental, too, since I see no need for vocals with such amazing playing.

I got a few video clips of Joe playing, some with g3 too. I think Vais better guitarist, but i like satrianis style more. Surfing with the alien is probably his best, and the song is probably my second fav instrumental (YYZ being one).

If anybodies seen him live, he has this cazy thing were he uses his left hand to whammy, and does something with his right to pull off the sickest sound for a guitar. It might be a pinch harmonic, but i couldnt get it to hit that note. I seen him do it on several different videos, but I can not figure out how the hell he does that. I can upload one if anybody wants.

It's f*cking impossible, much easier to simply hit a G string harmonic at 2.5 fret and dive. The same effect is produced.

So anyway, if you could pick one guitarist to be on G3 who hasn't already been on G3, (no Johnson, Malmsteen, or Petrruci) who would it be.

If Tom Morello went into a solo career I'd bet he'd be a good virtuoso.

Joe
08-27-2005, 07:55 PM
I'm a huge satch fan. I've got The Extremist and Surfing with the Alien. They're both great albums. He's a pretty awesome guitar player, one of the few virtuosos I like. He's creative and isn't always shredding. Satch Boogie, The Extemist, Friends, and there's one other that's my fav but I forget what it's called (#4 on the Extremist)

If Tom Morello went into a solo career I'd bet he'd be a good virtuoso.

Well you can think that, but I think he's a boring guitarist. I've honestly only heard like two of his solos that are really any good. Extremely overrated.

G3 is a worldwide guitar tour that Joe Satriani and Steve Vai host every year.

The last three years the third guitarist has been Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, and John Petrruci. There's a different third guitarist every year.

So who would you pick besides those guys?

Joe
08-27-2005, 08:49 PM
I'd go with... It'd be pretty cool to have Kirk Hammett do it. Maybe... hm, I don't know... I can't think of anyone who hasnt/isnt:
1) been on the tour
2) currently recording
3) dead

Maybe someone like Jimmy Page would be cool, but it doesn't seem like it would be his kind of concert. I don't know.

yeah, I don't really believe it, since he was classically trained on piano or something like that. But his soloing is so uninspiring. No matter if it fits the song or not it's like the same solo, whammy bar dives followed by tapping (which other artists have done way better ala Vai) and some decent speed runs. No rythmic value at all, even though he does put together some intresting rythm parts

Hmm...I never listened to Buckethead. But I hear him all the time get mentioned with these other great shred dudes.

Anyway, one of the reason I like Joe so much is because it looked like he was always having fun onstage. Always smiling, messing with bandmates.

There are too many "metal" bands and guitarists who think they're badass and have that stupid friggin' scowl on their face. We need more people like Joe Satriani. :upset:

I totally agree with the fun thing. People should look like they're having fun onstage, it REALLY rubs off onto the audience (at least for me it does)

But that doesn't have anything to do with improvising ;)

I'll upload a Buckethead song for you, called Machete off of colma. I only got one album by him and it's the best song off the album

Here's my opinion:

Starts off to slow for my taste, but right around the 1:30 point the guitar kicks in. Some really passionate playing going on. The song finishes great.

Nothing freakishly original, but I like it. :thumb: I could see him being on G3.

Satch is one of the few guitar virtuosos I can listen to without getting bored into a coma.

As for the G3 thing, my first urge would be to say Criss Oliva, but he's dead. So are Piggy and Stevie Ray Vaughan...

Of those living, Andre Olbrich or Tom Morello would be interesting to see. Buck Dharma of Blue Oyster Cult as well.

They'll probably tap Andy Timmons for the next G3. That'll make a boring show. :rolleyes:

If they wanted to trip things up, they'd grab some guys off Vai's Favored Nations label: Johnny Hiland and/or Pierre Bensusan would be unbelievable counterpoint to Satch and Vai.

Steerpike
08-28-2005, 01:27 AM
(shrug) I guess I'm just biased.

Personally, I think Buck Dharma would be a great addition to G3 because of a combination of his unique sound, years of experience in rock and roll showmanship, and the fact that unlike Vai or Satch, he's actually a really good singer, too. Admit it, Joe trying to sing Keep on Rockin in the Free World was nothing to write home about.

But if you think about it, I really think it would be cool to hear Satch and Buck playing together. Satch has the not-of-this-world vibe, while Buck's style is more of a spectral dark comedy. Listen to Love Thing and then listen to I Love the Night. Now tell me that wouldn't make for an awesome show.

Thanks man. So anyway, I was skimming through my old archives of 'Guitar One' magazine and guess what I find. A list of the "Top Ten Worst Guitar Tones." Here's the list:

1. Everthing Nu Metal
2. Jerry Garcia
3. Kirk Hammett
4. Mike Stern
5. Vernon Reid
6. Joe Satriani
7. Mick Mars
8. John McLaughlin
9. Billy Corgan
10. Randy Rhoads

This is dumb. Just because Satch and Randy Rhoads have unique guitar tones that are hard to duplicate doesn't make them bad. In fact that makes them...good. What are your opinions?

I believe the article in question said "Joe Satriani's trademark 'alien tone' is nearly impossible to emulate. But when your tonal legacy is sounding like an ancestor of Charlie Brown's teacher, would you want to?"

I believe they are making reference to Satch's frequent overabuse of the wah pedal here, hence the reference to Charlie Brown.

"wawa wa...wa wa...wa wa wa."
"Yes, ma'am."

And you've gotta admit, he uses it WAY too much. It does get quite annoying.

Let me tell you a funny story of the G3 2003 tour with Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Steve Vai. I know this was not staged.

It was the first stop of the G3 tour; in Phoenix AZ. Everyone played fantastic. Yngwie came out first and kinda...kicked everyone's ***. Steve was playing that crazy triple-neck-guitar when he came out. That was awesome. Joe finished the show playing all of hits, he closed with an awesome version of "Summer Song."

After Joe everyone was waiting for the traditional G3 jam. Satch comes out to thunderous applause, and introduces Yngwie Malmsteen...but Yngwie doesn't come out. I believe there was something wrong with his amps.

Joe and his band are just walking around, really confused. Then Joe says "Okay, we're gonna call this one the Waiting For Yngwie Blues." His drummer and bassist give him a blues beat and Joe busts off a amazing blues improvision. The whole time he was improvising. It was awesome!!

Then after 4 minutes of playing Joe says "We'll have to make a song out of that one!" I thought that was funny. Then 5-10 minutes later Yngwie and Steve come out and explode into "Voodoo Child," and all was well.

What a cool show!! :thumb:

1) Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force
2) Racer X - Live: Extreme Volume
3) Vinnie Moore - Mind's Eye
4) Tony MacAlpine - Edge of Insanity
5) Steve Vai - Passion and Warfare
6) Joe Satriani - Surfing with the Alien
7) Shawn Lane - Powers of Ten
8) Michael Lee Firkens - Michael Lee Firkins
9) Cacophony - Spped Metal Symphony
10) Greg Howe - Greg Howe


I personally think Joe and Steve should be higher on the list, but Yngwie does deserve to be Number 1.

Albums that should be on there:
1) Eric Johnson - Ah Via Musicom
2) Van Halen - Van Halen
3) Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz
4) John Petrucci - Suspended Animation
5) Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys (the first shred album)

the great thing about JS his music is always changing and he knows when he can relax a little in a song and when its shred time. thats awesome. thats the major flaw with people like malmsteen. straight up shredding gets tiresome after a while. especially in virtuoso music you need to keep things fresh. btw "crushing day" is brilliant. get your hands on surfing with the alien as soon as humanly possible. buy the extrimist too.


............also............if you like guitar-master albums then check out a cd called "Freak Guitar" by Mattias IA Eklundh. ist not in very many stores that i know of but you can order it off amazon or something. that album is wicked. theres so much different material on that and its really quirky and weird but he has serious talent.

Sounds good "pudding time".

That's one thing I can do with Joe Satriani and without other shredders...play their music to a friend. People who've never heard shredding before will pick up a Satch record and go "that's catchy," when the CD is all instumentals.

In terms of technique there's no debate, the student has suprassed the teacher. But in terms of tone and songwritting, it's debatable.

True. I think both are great technique wise, but Vai edges him out. For the Love of God is one of my favorite instrumentals. However, songwriting wise, I think Satch > Vai by a mile. Vai seems to be more for just soloing and less of structure, Satch actually likes to have parts be the chorus and the verse, etc. Tone wise, they both have awesome tone, but I'm gonna' vote for Satch again. But I'm biased. :p

They are a model made by Carvin.

Now for something about Satch:
I've got 'Surfing With The Alien', I think it might be the only purely instrumental CD that I can listen to from start to finish because of his songwriting ability. It was my first (and only for quite a while) shred CD, and remains in regular rotation in my car.

I've seen a vid of his playing on "Foxy Lady" and I agree. He looks old, unstylish, tired, and like he sucks at playing. I don't get it, his soloing on that song was so peculiar and bad. According to you, he seems to be that way on the whole DVD.

Cain
11-18-2005, 07:02 PM
Yeah, I've decided that I friggin' hate every G3 performance except for the one with Eric Johnson. That was the only one where Satriani didn't feel like he had to compete with all the dumb shredders that they got as guest stars, and fail miserably because he's just not technically very good anymore.

Poor Satch, he really has gotten very predictable. Of late he seems to keep trying for all these classic rock style things instead of evolving his sound. His soloing is based on hyper-fast pentatonic clichés and the one legato lick that he ever uses anymore:

E-12p8h10h12p10p8s7h8h10p8p7------------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------h10p7h8h10p8p7------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------9p7s5h7p5s4h5h7p5p4-----
D-----------------------------------------------------------------------------7p4h5
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

etc...

He's just become a disappointingly boring guitar player. His last two albums had next to no experimentation on them, and the G3 tours are thoroughly unimpressive on nearly all counts, because the guest stars stink and Satch AND Vai keep playing the same licks over and over again when improvising: plus, NONE of them know how to jam on classic rock songs. Listening to Satch, Vai and Yngwie wheedle their way through songs like "Rockin' in the Free World," "Foxy Lady," and "Voodoo Chile" seems almost sacriligeous in the extreme and laughable at the least. There's no denying that Satch wrote a ton of good songs, but he's lost a LOT of fire with age.

Compare his sweep picking and soloing versatility on something like "Crushing Day" to "Mind Storm." He's gotten VERY sloppy and uncreative.

I think Satch is just going through a phase.
I can't 'member where I read it but he said somewhere: "You've seen my technical side and my electronic side, now you're seeing my ROCKIN' side"...or something to that effect.
I think Vai is as quirky as ever; in the Foxy Lady vid I think he was just playing counterpoint to Satch and Petrucci.
And Petrucci, well...he hasn't ever been all that diverse has he?

His rocking side is really, really weak though. He simply does not excel at that sort of thing. He's never been a jammer extraordinaire or even someone that ever really pushes the harmonic envelope, at least recently.

Vai is certainly quirky, but he's equally frustrating in that he isn't quite evolving, and improvisationally he's really weak, surprisingly so for a musician of his caliber.

And Petrucci was always a terrible improviser.

Broken Angels
11-18-2005, 07:16 PM
Satch:'s "rockin'" side is nothing special at all. But I'm content to let him play it out and get it over with in the hope that he'll develop something new...soon!

Vai: I'm more interested in watching him play than anyone else because I've always found him more interesting. His Improv's always seem different and exciting compared to most others.

Petrucci: I think he can do some decent Imporv's (see: Live at Budokan) but on the Foxy lady vid he didn't really do anything very impressive. As far as he's concerned he is most definetly stuck in a rut.

11-20-2005, 04:14 PM
Yngwie's improv on G3 is appalling. Not a single recognizable lick. Vai sounds good but isn't really improvising. Satch on the other hand simply kicks ***.

I do reckon Vai has surpassed his teacher composition and techniquewise but it took a hell of a long time to happen. Reflections is pretty perfect but satch was making perfect music in the 80s when vai was just a shredder

For my money Flying in a Blue Dream is the best track ever...not just the best Satch track but one of the best pieces of music ever written. The first time I heard it I was blown away...I instantly loved the beginning, the chatter and harmonic feeding back. I like the way the track ends with a heavier more distorted guitar, instead of backing off as the track is ending.

I saw him in concert last year. I like both Vai and Satch...but Satch just seemed to have more fun on stage and that translated into the audience reaction.

Hey first post

I love Satch. Good to meet other people who are into the guy. I have had 'Surfing With The Alien' for a long while, and have loved the sheer variety and technical ability displayed on that album. Hence my username. I also have 'The Extremist', and find that less experimental but much more expressive. The songs on that just ooze with feel, such as Cryin', and my favourite two off the album which are just two of the most rocking songs i can name, 'The Extremist' and 'War'.

I recently picked up 'Not of This Earth' for a paltry $2 at a pawn shop, and am quite impressed by that though i haven't had much time to listen to anything recently. My favourite song off that so far is 'The Snake'. Can someone answer me where 'Not Of This Earth' fits in the chronology of Satchs albums?

Cheers.

Super Colossal is an awesome album! I don't know if it's his best, but it's definetly up there. He hasn't lost his groove! I haven't finished listening to it yet but it's definetly got some addictive riffs and awesome lead playing!

Hey first post

I love Satch. Good to meet other people who are into the guy. I have had 'Surfing With The Alien' for a long while, and have loved the sheer variety and technical ability displayed on that album. Hence my username. I also have 'The Extremist', and find that less experimental but much more expressive. The songs on that just ooze with feel, such as Cryin', and my favourite two off the album which are just two of the most rocking songs i can name, 'The Extremist' and 'War'.

I recently picked up 'Not of This Earth' for a paltry $2 at a pawn shop, and am quite impressed by that though i haven't had much time to listen to anything recently. My favourite song off that so far is 'The Snake'. Can someone answer me where 'Not Of This Earth' fits in the chronology of Satchs albums?

Cheers.
hahaha. I have no idea where 'Not of the Earth' fits in. That album is cwazy. I'm getting 'Super Colossal' today. So excited.

And I'm gonna see Satch in concert with Eric Johnson in may. :)

Not of This Earth was his first album and he paid for it entirely himself on his credit card.

I'm going to see him at Manchester in June.

In the U.S Eric Johnson is touring with him but I don't think he's coming to England. :(
Can anyone confirm this and if it is true who is supporting him over here?

Hhmmm...it doesn't say on Joe's website or the Apollo's website. I would assume he's touring with Eric Johnson...

Circles is such an awesome song, I always 'air-whammy' along with the whammy dives at the end of the solo and get laughed at :upset:

And Lords of Karma is the coolest name for a song ever.
