  • 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.

    Key:
    A Minor

    Techniques:
    * Bends
    * Slides
    * Hammer-ons
    * Pull-off
    * Legato

    Scales:
    * A Pentatonic
    * A Minor

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * My Personal Board
    * General Forum

    Enjoy!/ Laszlo
