Joe Satriani—Light Years Away Lesson

Light Years Away By Joe Satriani Guitar Lesson
Joe Satriani—Light Years Away

In this free video lesson with my student, I go over the first of many phrases in the light years away composition by Satriani. The phrase is this lesson is the first legato section in which Joe has an amazing left hand run which includes a four finger legato blues scale and diatonic notes before ending the run as a pentatonic run. It is absolutely outstanding and I go over some techniques of how to learn and play it by listening to the phrase in small doses and singing the melody in your head. This is a great memorization technique but also helps with ear training by learning songs by ear.
