oh please people! Do your fucking research. Once again, SATRANI DID NOT TEACH VAI. he simply played with him a few times, improved him improvisational skills and taught him a few tricks. And for the record, Vai is actually better than Satriani, has alot more imagination and can play a damn sight quicker to. Don't get me wrong, i love Satch. I do.
hooooooowwwwwwwwww abbbooooooouuuttttt nooooooooo
One of the greatest guitar gods to ever live
The teacher of another great steve vai

Satriani is a guitar god
Greatest guitarist of our modern era. Worship him, and play Surfing With The Alien when you have sex.
Idiot: Satriani sucks.
God: you are wrong looks like you're going to hell.
Might be the only musician that played in G3 to ever have any musical soul whatsoever. Great, great guitarist. Yes, ok, he can get wankery. But most of the time it's with a melody, the music has a point, it's not just shredding and getting nowhere (but getting nowhere faster than your head can register). Taught Vai, so Vai might have musical soul (haven't heard him, can't really tell) and of course, he taught Kirk Hammett.
Do I really need an example? Fuck you.
