Joe Satriani – Deep Guitar Lesson with Guitar World

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Very interesting set of videos from Guitar World who’ve been speaking with Joe Satriani about various technical aspects of his Black Swans and Wormwhole Wizards album and the result is a collection of rather insightful videos. Now, don’t be fooled by those entitled “How to play” because apart from a quick demo, it’s not the Young Guitar way of showing you how to play something. What’s interesting is the theory behind those songs (some of which can be pretty hardcore if you’re just beginning).

No embed I’m afraid but you can catch them all on the Guitar World Website (and thanks to Guitar Noize for the tip)

Joe Satriani – Light Years Away Music Video

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

This video was supposed to be exclusive to the Ibanez website, and only for a couple of days but as is usual on the web, it’s made its way to YouTube as well so check out the music video for Light Years away, the first single from Joe Satriani’s latest album Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards

Trippy 😉

Edit: Some more information posted by Joe on Facebook earlier:

Directed & Edited by Jon Luini and Arthur Rosato, filmed by Jon Luini, Chris Sentovich, and Boris Karpman. For those interested, the footage comes from the first show of the tour in Napa, three shows in Europe (two in Paris + Amsterdam), a few snippets from recording of the album at Skywalker Sound, and a green screen session shot for the LED wall footage used at the live shows.

Black Swans & Wormhole Wizards – Podcasts & Studio Webisodes

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Well just as he did for Professor Satchafunkilus and the Musterion of Rock, Satch has started releasing podcasts on his website to provide background information on each of the tracks of the upcoming Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards album.

You can tune in to the podcasts every day from today by going to or for HD quality videos check out Joe’s Facebook page

You can also find 4 “webisodes” (don’t you love those neologisms?), the first of which is a 7 min episode discussing the album, how it was named, the rehersal of “God is Crying” and a few more things.

Worth checking out (though those are Facebook videos, so be prepared for random cut-offs)
