There are a lot of things about being a rock star that you have to find out the hard way when you start your climb to the top — how to give a good interview, how to choose bunks on the tour bus, how to keep your bass player in his place and, perhaps most importantly, how to deal with groupies.
Steel Panther recently took part in a special Kerrang! Radio appearance in Birmingham, England which featured a special acoustic set performed for contest winners. You can check out an acoustic performance of "17 Girls in a Row" below.
Today's lick is a ripping glam-metal solo from Satchel of the band Steel Panther. It's a portion of his solo from "17 Girls in a Row," off the album Balls Out, and features a glitzy raked bend followed by some descending tapped pull-offs and hammer-ons, which cascade down a modified pentatonic scale.
Balls Out, the new album from '80s throwbacks Steel Panther is out today on Universal Republic Records. The first single from the record is a tune called "17 Girls in a Row," and the band have just released an official lyric video for the album, which you can watch below.
