    I borrowed "I Just Wanna Rock: Live from Paris" from my library and listened through it.

    I had absolutely no clue someone can make a guitar do things like that. It's awe-inspiring. If you haven't heard of him, LOOK HIM UP. HE WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

    Lol, I think theres a good 200-600 million or so people across the world that know about Joe. Hes great live.

    One of Joe's more famous students Steve Vai is even more mind blowing.

    After I saw Vai at a gig in Denver I got to meet him after the show and I told him holy **** that was the best live spectacle I've ever seen. And he goes, "I played pretty sh!tty actually..."

    Friggen awesome.

    If you like Satch, you have many guitar instrumental gods to discover.

    Surfing with the Alien is my all time favorite album of his. Out of all the guitarists in his genre, I think Joe has the most unique phrasing and tone. As the previous poster mentioned, Steve Vai is pretty unique as well. My favorite of his was his lowest budget first solo work - Flex-able.

    While not as interesting tonally as Satch, check out Paul Gilbert too.

    Satch is fantastic, but VAI and Nuno Bettencourt have always been my 2 guitar heroes, with
    John Petrucci close behind!

    Dream Theater!!!

    Satch is an amazing player, of course, but I never really got into his music. His songs sound a bit generic, like demo tracks off a tuition CD to me... Someone like Vai is a much better writer (and player), I think.

    Satriani is definitely awesome... so is Steve Vai.

    Check out "If I Could Fly" by Satch... you might find it bears a resemblance to a certain Coldplay song...

    Surfin wuth the Alien is one of my favorites.
    Stevie Ray Vaughn was awesome live.
    George Thorogood is impressive.
    Best I've seen live was Robin Trower at Center Stage in Atlanta. He may be ugly, but he's beautiful with a guitar. He plays like a jazzman. All feel on that given night.
    Halfway through the show his lead singer makes eye contact with the crowd to see if we understand what we're witnessing. He nods in Robin's direction and shakes his head in disbelief. Trower was off in his own world. That's what music is all about.
    Trower is known for his concept albums(Bridge of Sighs) from the 70's, but my favorite song is "No Time" from Passion album -1987.
    When my boys were little I used "Night" from the same record as a lullabye.
