I notice that a lot of famous guitarists have been taught or given lessons by joe satriani. How does a guitarist go about getting these lessons (no i'm not looking for satriani to be my guitar teacher). Does he hear someone play and then offer lessons or does someone pay him obscene amounts of money or both. How does that work out?

Just get it cut a little. It will grow back. Besides why is it so important to look metal? That's just retarded.

I'm pretty sure he was a teacher before he was famous and it just so happens that he's a really good teacher and his students got famous.
all I ever wanted was to pick apart the day
put the pieces back together my way

Ask your mother about "sexual favors"
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

Well, I doubt Satriani was as legendary in the 80's as he is now

Also, Tom Morello was taught by Michael Angelo Batio..I think it was when Tom met him at college or something, so school is one way. A more common way I'd suppose is through classifieds that the teacher will put up

If it is a very popular guy, like if you wanted lessons from Eddie Van Halen or something, then you'd probably only get lessons if you were already friends with the guy

Requirements for the Satriani School of Music:

Crazy amount of cash
You have to be REALLY good but just slightly less skilled than him
You have to join eventually Metallica as their lead guitarist (optional)

He was probably just a really good teacher. sure, a lot of his students got famous but then again, more didnt. thats why you dont know who they are.

He's just a talented SOB who teaches people how to become talented SOB's. To put it simply, i guess.

You used to be able to get guitar lessons from Chris Broderick until he recently joined Megadeth which I'd say is on a par with lessons from Satriani. I'd personally say Broderick is better though
The DNA results show that Jeremy Kyle is a nob.

I take lessons from Greg Howe via webcam its about 45 quid. He is the best guitarist of this generation. I also got a lesson from paul gibert..you buy a package with a gig ticket.

Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

You must summon a level 87 mage who will transport you to the forbidden ruins. After completing a number of impossible quests, Satriani will appear and challenge you to a duel. If you lose the duel, you will have access to his lessons.

anyone looking for lessons would lose the duel. kind of a pointless "test" if you ask me. btw, i have a lvl 93 mage, so if you want satch lessons send me a million dollars (?).

Teacher: "There will be a test tomorrow no exceptions."

Student: "What about complete and utter sexual exhaustion?"

Teacher: "You'll just have to write with your other hand."
