Things have certainly been changing for Joe Satriani. Suddenly a lot of people besides a few musicians know his name, have heard about his awesome chops, are picking up his first record, Not of this Earth. Which must be why, on this hot and muggy Sunday night in New York hundreds of folks have thronged to a converted church, now a club, called Limelight. In conjunction with the New Music Seminar, Guitar World is sponsoring a concert featuring Satriani.
Just like the headline says, here's an official Guitar World video of Joe Satriani showing you how to play his signature 1987 tune, "Satch Boogie." The track is from Satch’s landmark Surfing with the Alien album, which garnered tremendous AOR play and, ultimately, gold record status—both almost unheard of for a guitar instrumental lap.
Roger Waters’ celebrated 1992 solo album, Amused to Death, will return July 24—better than ever—courtesy of a new remaster from Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings. One of the album's noteworthy guest musicians was guitar great Jeff Beck, whose playing is a true highlight of several tracks, including “What God Wants, Part III”—and seven others.

Guitarist Andre Antunes answers that question in this brand-new video, as he mimics the playing styles and riffs of David Gilmour, Brian May, John Petrucci, Carlos Santana, Slash, Jimi Hendrix and 14 others over a bed of Jackson hits that includes “Smooth Criminal,” “Billie Jean” and “Beat It.”
