I think you'll also find he uses two other ones as well. Check out the three string sweep at the end of the Fire Garden Suite and the five string shape (which is similar to the four string sweep transcribed above) in the solo section to Building the Church :)

VOX is pleased to introduce the first pedal in an ongoing collaboration with guitar icon Joe Satriani.

Teaching

It's been a while. Recently, I started teaching guitar and bass in my local music shop, as cover for teachers that are off from teaching regularly. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on teaching? Some students bring in Grade books and we work from those, which is great, because not only are th...
