As would I.
I love his music, it is absolutely wonderful.
I've tried his signature guitar and it was alright.
(Nothing can come close to a JEM through this fancy Bogner. It sounded wonderful and really made my playing sound like something that isn't shit.)

He took lessons with Lennie Tristano and Billy Bauer. That's some cool shit.

Not many people know that, I've found. Ofcourse, they need to know a fair bit about jazz in order to even be impressed by that.

I knew he did that..
Dont forget Joe Pass..

Did you know, when Joe used to take lessons, If ever he hit a bad note, he would be sent home and the lesson was over. Thats it, i think he was taking those lessons from Joe Pass at the time. It didnt matter how long it took him to find the right, but he made sure he did. And mind you, all that training at age 17.. could you imagine the capacity of his playing now. Geeess...

It's just too bad he didn't do anything with all his jazz training imo... I find him bland to listen to mostly.

^ He's done plenty with it. Have you seen the modulations in Engines of Creation (and the dozens of other examples)? And IIRC, he directly credited a single jazz artist for the chorus in Hordes of Locusts (which escapes me at the moment)...

xtopher_aaron
01-16-2007, 08:44 AM
I think he just does what he does. Its his style that defines him, some may like it some may not.. But atleast its from the heart you know?

But one things for sure, I know for a fact hes more than capable of playing any kind of style..
I was watching this video of him, he was talking about Modal scales and all that, while he was talking, he was just soloing mindlessly all over the guitar. and i was like.. WooW.. even that sounded beautiful, all he had was his Chrome Boy, JSX Peavey, DS-1 and DD-2, 3 or 6 im not sure.. he had very little gain on so it sounder so sweet and clean.. What a musician, what a guitarist.. SALUTE!!

I'm talking about jazz. Not using jazz influences and theory in what are essentially rock songs.

And to be honest, I wouldn't class modulation as something "from" jazz.

they go for like $1300 new or somewhere around $750-850 used. a great bargain used.

and if you watch the satch boogie instructional video (floating around on youtube) he goes through all the modes on the tapping section. pretty crazy.

i think he does on the main portion of the song too.

out of all the G3 Guys, and/or guitar virtuoso's, Satch is easily my favourite. I have most of his albums, and they're all fantastic. Favourite songs are probably "Circles" "Lights of Heaven" "Ceremony" and "Clouds Race Across the Sky"

if you like the studio version of circles, check up on the one from his "satriani live" CD. way better.

Satch is one of the only "shredder" types I can listen to. He has the awesome technical skill, the speed, the theory... but he also has taste and one of the most beautiful tones I've ever heard teased out of a guitar.

Others are certainly impressive, but I can't honestly say I see in them what I see in Satch.

You should check out Engines of Creation. The entire song is a cycle through different modes every measure or so.

And yeah, the DVD is kickass. The outro to Always is amazing (I'm working on uploading it to Youtube >_>). That Circles outro is killer, how it goes all insane and then somehow turns into the Enigmatic riff...And I never expected for One Robot's Dream to blow me away as much as it did. That solo is amazing.

yo guys, check out Satch's playing on this live track called "W" by this band called Particle. They are a electronica based jam band, and they recently released a live album called "Transformations". I've never heard Satch play with a jam band, a really chilled out track to say the least, and to add to Satch's guitar you've got the amazing DJ Logic scratching it up and throwing some swirling soundscapes.

and then get hold of the album, you guys should enjoy it.

Now, I've only browsed through the posts so someone may have said this already but apart from being an incredible musician.....Satch is one of the nicest blokes I've ever met, I met him when he came here last year on the Super Colossal tour.....he was clearly half dead after performing an awesome show, but he came in (meet & greet afterwards) only half an hour after he finished and took the time to talk to everyone in there, had pictures taken, and the first thing he did when he entered the room was hold out a pen and say "Ok how much stuff would you all like me to sign".....not only that, but Dave LaRue came in and said hello to everyone, and his manager came in giving us free posters. Now I don't know about the rest of you but I've never seen such kind hearted rock stars, I can't think of any others that would do all that.

Woah I wrote quite allot there......erm......ROCK ON SATCH :golfclap:

They were saying "Stuuu". It's basically his chant.

Hell, he was joking around with the crowd too, pretending to be scoff them off before laughing. And you see how crazy everyone goes after his bass solo, they loved him.

They Stu him because they love him!

xtopher_aaron
01-24-2007, 02:18 PM
Stu was great when he was around. Even Matt Bisonette.. now their gone, bye bye!!

But apparently Joe's really happy with his new bassist(forgot name), apparently Stu wasnt into Rock and Matt wasnt into soloing, the new guy he got is somewhat of a mix between the two. If im not mistaken its Jon Petrucci's bassist or something like that..

Reminds me of a kid in my highschool nicknamed "Moose" who played football. Everytime we had a pep rally and they called his name, we'd all yell "Moooooooose!!" And the principal would flip out cause he'd think we were booing.

Anyway, has anyone seen the new JSX 15-watt Class A tube amp? Apparently Satch recorded a couple of tracks on Super Collosal using an early prototype. I'm looking to buy a small tube amp, but I cant find much info on it.

Joe is one of my personal top 3 guitar players of all time. His ability to truly understand melody and write songs that the average music fan can listen to while being technically sound floors me. For a perfect example of this, just compare "Flying in a Blue Dream" to "Speed of Light". 2 of my fav Satch songs and their on both sides of the spectrum. FIABD has that great melody and insane legato lines while SOL is all about the rhythm and melody.

Axegrinder#9
01-28-2007, 08:31 PM
anyway, I was recently watching G3: Live in Denver, while tripping face on 3 hits of some pretty good acid (it's an incredibly humorous experience, and highly recommend it) and we sorta came to the conclusion that Satch was pretty ****ing high during the jam, musta toked a good thick blunt... everything kinda fell into place thereafter...

after seeing him live you realize just how much he holds back on his albums. When him and the band get into their jamming mood he goes crazy, playing with his teeth behind his head, playing insanely fast, without ever losing his technique. He followed eric johnson and even eric johnson paled in comparison. And to top it off he's the nicest guy, he had another show the next day in another state and yet he stayed for almost 4 hours after the concert to meet fans, take pictures and sign autographs and guitars. His bus left like at 2am. he learned that vocal style of playing from lenny tristano, who made him scat sing guitar lines.

he actually mentions that during the Strange Beautiful Music podcast (where he would include it in a few setlists). And on a separate interview somewhere or something. Basically, it's too 'clunky' (also with The Forgotten Pt2) with the rhythm,... and/or it's too 80s!

he cant pull the solo off live either.he said it himself

wasp2020
02-25-2007, 02:14 PM
Yes, because he feels uncomfotable with it. as the solo was completely composed and he feels compelled to play it exactly how it's like on record (I know what he means) instead of doing what he usually does for solos, as virtually almost every other solo is improvised and not written.

surfing with the alien has to be played at some point during that movie, even if its during the credits. Satch deserves the exposure.

Agreed (although who knows, the production quality might be too low for movie use), and agreed. Songs like Strange, Phone Call, I Believe, Bells of Lal etc...are just...blah. Flying, Mystical, Day at the Beach, One Big Rush, Back to Shalla-Bal, The Forgottens, and Into The Light are most of the only songs I like from that album. it's a very cheesy album.

Meh, I'm not a very big fan of him. After I saw him in concert I just sort of got bored of him. Eric Johnson (who was opening for Satch when I saw him) was a lot more interesting in concert.

You know, I find with any music, unless you absolutely love who you're seeing anything more than an hour and a half concert is going to wear you out.

I've seen Satch twice, the first time he played two hour and a half sets, and damn was it good. There was a point that it all started sounding the same, but the funny thing is 5 minutes later I realized that I really didn't care, I just wanted him to keep playing.

The second time was with Eric Johnson on the Super Colossal tour. Damn. The live DVD/cd thing was great, but his performance in Vancouver was nothing short of amazing, must have been the cameras.

I've got to say I love Super Colossal, it's like the least technically impressive yet most melodic cd he's got. As a matter of fact just for fun I've been copying over the tab book to guitar pro and I figure I'll try to learn just about all the songs there. Gotta find someone to do some drums and bass for me though.

I'm hoping he makes his way through town again soon though, it's the only "good" music I've manage to get my girlfriend to listen to so far (unless Nelly Fellatio... err Fertado, counts as good?)

edit: there, her name is now spelt correctly, not that it deserves to be. Does that make you happy? :D

03-08-2007, 03:28 PM
For anyone who's seen the DVD, there are some points on it where he grabs the trem with his left hand and gets these super high harmonics. What the hell is he doing here?

I can't tell but it doesn't look like he's fretting a note on the pickup. His right hand is usually away from his guitar, and it doesn't look like he's doing anything with his left hand aside from using the trem. So what the hell is he actually doing?

He's just hitting pinch harmonics with his right hand, then raising the tremolo bar with his left hand. Takes a little practise to get perfect, but it's relatively straight forward really ;)

It was discussed a couple of posts back, basically his 3 reasons are:

1) The rhythm section, with him, performed live, is too 'clunky' and simply does not transfer well in a band situation (same for The Forgotten Pt2).

2) The solo is one of the only ones that he ever actually composed, and he feels uncomfortable playing it exactly the same, and also uncomfortable playing it differently then how he wrote it.

3) It's too '80s'! (a bit of a joke)

I feel kinda bad for coming in the Satriani thread and saying this, but I prefer Vai. He wins this very close match by his interesting experimental work. He seems more versatile, while Satch is all about sweet melodies and stunning solos, nothing more, nothing else.

I think Satriani is able to convey feelings into songs better then Vai.

Well no actually, I know Vai can create amazing compositions (jesus, Sound Theories) but he just loses me more often then not. But even with simpler songs, I don't find it all that compelling, Boston Rain Melody, Feathers, even FTLOG, and what have you - they work, but they don't get to me as much as Satriani tends to.

With Satriani you have these songs that just plain nail that feeling...Clouds Race Across the Sky, Summer Song, Until We Say Goodbye, Saying Goodbye, Time, Day at the Beach, If I Could Fly, Flying in a Blue Dream, Into the Light, Driving at Night, New Day, Starry Night - they're catchy melodic pop tunes, yes, but they're fantastic pop tunes.

Up until I saw him at G3 I never thought of him as especially technical. He does some pretty tough licks at times but I never though him anywhere near the level of say Petrucci. At G3 though he was incredible. He did some unbelievable one handed legato arpeggios (Like in Mystical Potato Head Groove but far more extreme).

he's a whole lot more technical than most people think- for example, on the satriani LIVE! DVD/CD on ice 9 after the solos, during the chorus, he does this crazy harmonic tapping thing. i've tried, it's tough.

satriani, by the way.

You're forgetting "Just Look Up" which is truly an awesome song.

Who do you prefer, Joe Satriani or Steve Vai?

Satch by a longshot! :p:

I just love how he can tell a story with just music. Vai's a great player but a lot of his compositions either loose me or don't interest me at all...not to mention his over-usage of the whammy bar :(

07-02-2007, 01:18 AM
you don't think satch over-uses the whammy bar? when i saw him at G3 he threw in a few extra "satch screams" every song, which i personally love. i think that would count as over-usage. although, normally i prefer his whammy tricks and music over vai.

Vai uses the whammy bar ALL-THE-TIME. He would play a whole song making his guitar sound like a fretless if he wanted to (which he does, so hey).

satch suses it much more conservatively. some screams, maybe some bouncing, and that's about it

I've heard a lot about Joe Satriani, and I wanted to start listening to him, and try out his music a little bit. I just heard the song, "Always with me, always with you", and I thought it was great.

Any recomendations on good songs by Satriani? Like, what songs are considered his "best" by many of his biggest fans?

I'm trying to expand my style, and I've heard a lot of people say that he's one of the best guitarists of this generation. And I didn't feel like making a new thread about this, I figure it's best to go straight to his fanbase, right?

Thanks in advance.

tubab0y
07-02-2007, 04:21 PM
thanks for not making a new thread.

and if you wanna get a basic feel for what he's like, i'd either suggest his anthology CD (it's getting a bit old now) or one of his live CDs- satriani LIVE! has a lot of his good songs on it. don't ever try to learn the songs off a live CD though, it doesn't work.

wasp2020
07-02-2007, 04:27 PM
Songs are way too hard to list. Really, they're all fantastic in one way or another.

I would strongly reccomend the Anthology album, the Extremist album, and then the Surfing With The Alien album.

(The Antholgoy doesn't cover Is There Love In Space or Super Colossal albums though)

3. Pull bar up and down accordingly.

I know satch is shred, but why do some people not consider him to be shred? I really like the groove he has on his songs, like "searching" and "cool #9" and Surfing with the Alien. he's a phenominal player and musician, so why isn't he really considered to be shred?

Satch knows how to pull back and create a simple melody. I guess he's alot more bluesier too.

anyone read the new issue of guitarplayer? it's pretty good. it's about how he got started, surfing with the alien, effects, practice, teaching, ect. I learned lots of cool stuff from the interview. Satch is really cool about his playing. He's not about the whole theory of it as much as the other guys are, but the sound, feeling, and groove that comes out of it.

Reload the home page to see the news! These shows are just for you hardcore fans over the years and we've kept the prices low, even going as far as making special arrangements for the "convenience" fees that are added on!

And yes, there are plans to get some of the music out in a variety of ways to all of the folks who won't be able to get tickets and/or attend the shows :} All will be made clear, along with the contests and such, as the days pass!
