A few years back, Joe Satriani visited Guitar World to shoot a few lesson videos.
He had some time left over, after filming a few episodes of his lesson column, to shoot a few licks.
This lick features fast pick tapping on the high E string, with a wah pedal used as a filter effect. You might recognize it from "Surfing with the Alien."
We call it "Pick Surfing." Enjoy!
