Not only is Joe Satriani a hell of a shredder on the guitar, early in his career he taught a bunch of guitarists like Steve Vai, Metallica's Kirk Hammett and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello. Now Satriani's giving away free half-hour lessons. Well, the only catch is that you have to buy one of his Ibanez JS 20th signature guitars on Sunday, March 14 when he'll give an in-store appearance at the Musician's Superstore from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Check out the Musician's Superstore for more details.
Satriani just released a new DVD, Live in Paris: I Just Wanna Rock, and perform along with Eric Johnson, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Billy Cox and a whole bunch of others on March 14 at Paramount Theatre as part of the Experience Hendrix Tour.
