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.

Where's that?
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

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)...

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.

Oh. Never mind then. I thought you were just talking about inspiration/influence.

Yeah, the only real jazzy thing from Satch I can think of is that outro solo to Is there Love in Space...

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.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

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.
