Many of his songs have nonsensical or disposable titles but this is an aural definition or sketch of what a premonition sounds like. This might be one of Satriani’s trippiest mood pieces yet. I started it 20 years ago. I had to run into my studio quickly before I forgot it. I Just Wanna Rock Bassist Allen Whitman shines on this massively grooving funker – he doesn’t ‘go off’; he just drives the tune with relaxed authority.

Overall on the record, I tried to get more by playing less. For rock bands, it would be great – what an easy way to get from gig to gig! All you need is that one little thing to change from the original idea and the whole vibe is lost. The spirit of saxophonist Eddie Harris lives in this bopping, jazz meets blues number. But as I started playing, I started to think about the concept of God. He knocked down doors for others and many have followed but he and his audience are the wlrmhole beneficiaries of his innovations.

This page was last edited on 15 Aprilat I found that I dropped my inhibitions and let my heart do the playing. Everybody uses it on their vocals, but I decided to try it with a guitar and interact with it like I would a wah-wah pedal. Sometimes the best art needs you to shed some blood, you know?

The solo is an absolute corker! Instrumental rockprogressive rock. As a musician who wants to convey powerful statements, tapping into my emotions was key.

Why do we need Him? At the 43rd Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, Overall, it’s like being whisked away to a distant land.
