Joe Satriani - Professor Satchafunkilus And The Musterion Of Rock (CD)

Joe Satriani
Professor Satchafunkilus And The Musterion Of Rock

It is just amazing; Joe Satriani has been releasing instrumental albums since 1986 when Not of This Earth saw the light of the day. His trademark guitar performing style has been an inspiration for many guitarist who try to reproduce the different and sometimes weird noises that Saint Joe creates with the six strings.
I had the privilege to watch Joe presenting his new album with the long title in an in-store signing session; there he performed some of the tracks of the album (and some old ones) and talked about some of his new techniques. I was pretty amazed by his passion in making music and experimenting with his guitar. He even answered to some questions that most of them were about specific techniques that were completely strange to me!
So, what will happen if you push the play button in your CD player with the new Satriani album in? Well, most of you who are reading these lines already know the answer and probably you already have bought this one. Once again Joe is telling stories with his custom made Ibanez, creating images or even emotions. The tracks are full of different sounds born through rare and most of the times non-Metal scales underlining the fact that there is no limit in making music and this is where all the 'fun' is. What can I say about this album? I am not a professional guitar player not even an amateur; but I got lost during the soulful almost bluesy guitar solo in Come On Baby and really enjoyed the groove in Overdriver.  Diddle-Y-A-Doo-Dat had already earned me during Joe's in-store live performance with the hearty harmonics and the almost funky feeling. Asik Veysel has the trademark hammer on and pull offs that fit excellently to the heavier groove that follows. Last but not least, I loved Andalussia with the flamenco clean guitar strong undertones that open for the distorted Ibanez guitar solo.
I think now I understand why Satriani has been that successful; he plays his guitar and makes music because he likes it and for this puts his soul to it. In fact the guitar can actually tell if you strum her strings with your heart and not with the pick; yeah, I am referring to the guitar as a female because from my point of view playing the guitar is like making love…
