I was just reading up about some of the most famous and idolized guitar players in the world on wikipedia. What seems weird is that most of the best and most famous guitarists all seem to have taught each other or met each other at some point. blink.gif For example: Joe Satriani taught Kirk Hammett (Metallica), David Bryson (Counting Crows), Kevin Cadogan (Third Eye Blind), Larry LaLonde (Primus, Possessed), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Rick Hunolt (Exodus), Phil Kettner (Lääz Rockit), Geoff Tyson, and Charlie Hunter (copy and paste smile.gif ). Doesn't it seem a bit weird that so many of his students go on to be technically brilliant and succesful? Do you recon he teaches them a special way of thinking about guitar or something? What do you guys think? blink.gif

Joe Satriani use his alienpowers to pass his gift on to others tongue.gif
I guess Joe is an extremely good teacher, and I bet that when those guitarists show up for audition and say that they have been tought by Joe Satriani himself, they get a huge plus.

I think it's more that being taught by a guitarist like Satriani gives a huge inspiration and drive to constantly push yourself.
+ he's a great great teacher.

Nice idea, hadn't thought of that one before. That probably explains it...

Alex Skolnick is way different to Satch but he is a great Jazz Musican now and mixing it with thrash sounds incredible biggrin.gif
