Joe Satriani recently dropped by Guitar World's studio in New York City to shoot a few videos, including several quick lessons on handy licks you can use in different situations.
Here's one of them, which we like to call "the Space Invader." It's an atonal tapping/whammy-bar trick that makes your guitar sound like aliens who are up to no good.
If you missed Satch's last GW video (from early July), "How to Play a String-Skipping Chicken Pickin' Lick," you can find it right here.
