Very cool Laszlo - I really like Satch's groovy sides which you captured well.
I like the groove in this one! Those legatos are so Satch
Oh yes !! Bit of Satch is always a good thing.. you've captured his feel very well there Laszlo !
Great playing, it sounds great! The pinched harmonics sound great in this lesson!
Satch is like the master of legato! You did well to play like him!
Very Satrianish indeed ,good job man
Hi GMC'ers! Here is my first Satch style lesson! "Satch" also known as Joe Satriani is one of the most influential guitarist today. This is an exercize with some boogie patterns, it's simpliar for beginners to play. The key is A minor and we'll use it in different positions.
In the first part I also play chromatic notes and ghost notes in A minor at the fifth fret. "Ghost notes are musical notes occurring in a rythmic figure which are purposely deemphasized, often to the point of near silence."("Ghost Notes", Wikipedia) "A chromatic note is one which does not belong to the scale of the key prevailing at the time. Similarly, a chromatic chord is one which includes one or more such notes."("Chromatic Note", Wikipedia) It's continues at higher frets, there is a legato part and some bluesy pattern at the end also.
* A Pentatonic
* A Minor
