Song of the Day: The Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing (Joe Satriani, live)
A few months after I started learning to play guitar, I started reading guitar magazines--and all of them were abuzz about Joe Satriani's "Flying in a Blue Dream" album and his amazing guitar pyrotechnics.
I found a used tape of the album and was blown away by it. I'd never dreamed that a guitar could be made to do the seemingly impossible things Satch makes look simple.
Never learned to play like that--but at least now I can see HOW he does it.
