Joe Satriani - The Guru of Guitar

It was one of the best concerts i have attended so far and the genre was purely rock. I have never really listened to much of Jimi Hendrix to compare Joe's performance as Jimi is considered the God of guitar. But i feel Joe is the Guru of Guitar as he has breeded some of the best guitarist.

Joe played most of his popular numbers and kept the crowd craving for more and more. What really amazed me was that during the entire concert never did Joe take a break, he played continuosly apart from the breathers between the songs. As far as the solos he performed, i feel there are no words to describe them, it was truly enchanting.

Overall a wonderful show. I hope the organisers get some more Rock groups to perform in Bangalore.

I would have to say that if we are talking about guitar greats then we should not forget Chuck Berry. Jimi and Joe may not have thinking about the 6-string the same way if Chuck Berry had not taken the direction he did.

Cheers.....
