Joe Satriani Lesson: Go "Pick Surfing" with Satch!

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!
