Happy Birthday Mr. JOE SATRIANI "Satch", one of the most influential and respected instrumental rock guitarists to emerge in the past three decades. Born 15 July 1956 is an American instrumental rock guitarist, and Multi-instrumentalist. Early in his career, Satriani worked as a guitar instructor, with many of his former students achieving fame, such as Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett, Andy Timmons, Charlie Hunter, Rick Hunolt, Alex Skolnick. He is 15 time Grammy Award Nominee. He has worked with a range of guitarists during the G3 tour which he founded in 1995. Also he has worked with Mick Jagger and Deep Purple. His G3 collaborators have included Vai, Timmons, Steve Lukather, John Petrucci, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert. Satriani has been the guitarist for the Super Group CHICKEN FOOT. Satriani is considered a highly technical guitarist, and has been referred to as a top guitar virtuoso. Satriani has mastered many performance techniques on electric guitar, including legato, two-handed tapping and arpeggio tapping, harmonics and extreme whammy bar effects. During fast passages, Satriani favors a legato technique (achieved primarily through hammer-ons and pull-offs) that yields smooth and flowing runs. He is also adept at other speed-related techniques such as rapid alternate picking and sweep picking. In this video clip Joe performing one of his most famous pieces "SATCH BOOGIE". "Satch Boogie" is the fifth track from the album Surfing with the Alien released in 1987. It's Satch’s dizzying harmonic progression of cascading tapped, pulled-off, and hammered-on arpeggios, which fluctuates between A-based major, minor, and dominant tonalities, and is played entirely on the fifth string.
