He doesn't pick his notes when he plays fast, therefore he can't REALLY play fast.

Can't play fast = Can't shred
Can't shred = Can't rock/jazz/metal guitar
Can't rock/jazz/metal guitar = Blues player or folk guitarist
Blues player or folk guitarist = not Joe Satriani

Therefore Joe Satriani can't play guitar.

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

oh god.

forget dropping on your head. did your parents throw u down a well or something?

Its called LEGATO. And shred isnt everything. Speed shows talent but Joe's technical abilities are unrivaled except at times by steve vai.

Speed is a sloppy players best friend, no one can hear your mistakes when your doing 15 nps

I see his pick hand moving quite a bit.

the speed at which you play doesn't determine how well you play guitar. he is an awesome player even if i'm not a fan of his music, he can make the guitar do what he wants it to and that is what makes a great player.

your logic is fukked up. Satriani > you

btw if u you know anything about joe satriani you know hes not rock/metal

he cant be pidgeonholed, hes almost every genre. he even does r&b which is rare because of todays r&b is just Rhythm and no blues at all (hence R&B). Joe is a virtuoso

Theres this thing called legato you probably never heard of seeing you're such a tool. I'd like to see you play better/faster than Satch.

acually he raises a valid point, the dude cant play as well as everyone says he can...yeah he knows music theory and is bald with sunglasses...but is his stuff really that impressive? not really...

Bi-ah and TS are wrong. Just because you don't pick everything doesn't mean you can't play.

I love how everyone is overreacting to an otherwise innocuous statement.

Simply because the TC presented his opinions in a way that seems to be trolling everyone hops on his back and goes crazy.

Anyway, Satch most definitely can pick.

Joe Satriani is a huge influence of mine, and guess what I felt when I read his statement?

Nothing, it didn't effect me one bit... so I say calm down with the rage on this guy and if you feel the need to reply to him, at least do it logically.
#33
yea........seriously.......chill out little fishies, I love Satch and I think he's a brilliant guitarist. I posted it as a joke....for a laugh. I guess irony doesn't translate too well over the web, even when its as blatant as my original post.

I mean....Satriani = can't play guitar.........???? How can you NOT know that that is irony???
#34
By this logic, I think one can rule out MAB as well since he uses legato alot too...hell, by this logic I could rule out just about every guitarist know to man.

Besides, not being able to shred equals not being able to play guitar?

Could someone please point out why LEGENDS such as B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and for crying out loud Jimmy Hendrix got that famous other than by PLAYING a guitar?

Seriously, you are entitled to your opinion, but I'd love to know how you came up with this idea...

Thin necks make you play faster because guitars with thin necks sound thin and bad, and you play fast to distract people from the bad tone.
