  • Hey GMC'ers! One of my all time favorite Joe Satriani CD's is "Surfing With The Alien". This album defines Satch's riffing style for the following rock era and was also, a great inspiration for upcoming guitar heroes.

    What he does here is combine blues patterns and techniques, and takes it to a brand new level for rock guitarists. Notice the the typical blues pattern at the first 3 bars as an example. The following parts are modulations typical to rock, and the end is also a common rock riff.

    Techniques:
    * Vintage Rock Riffing - Satriani Style
    * Sliding
    * Bending
    * Strumming

    Tuning:
    * Standard D
    * D - G - C - F - A - D
    (From thick to thin string)

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

    Have fun!/ Zsolt
