This 2-DVD set gives you the chance to learn six entire songs from start to finish, with in-depth discussion of the specialist techniques and tones the guitar legend employs.

The first time I ever heard Joe Satriani's brilliant Ibanez tone was via an Armed Forces Network television commercial, while I was stationed withthe Navy, in Japan, back in 1987. About every hour, each day, this AFN stationwould play a short "Here's what's happening in your community" type of announcement, which just so happened to use Satriani's "Always With Me, Always With You", as the background music throughout the announcement. It took me about a month to finally track down who the hell it was who was playing this awesome tune, and I immediately went out and picked up Surfing With The Alien, his great album that this song is from.
Is There Love in Space? is the tenth studio album by instrumental rock guitarist Joe Satriani, released on April 13, 2004. The track "If I Could Fly" is now the base of a lawsuit between Joe Satriani and Coldplay. Joe Satriani was suing Coldplay for allegedly plagarising music from the song "If I Could Fly" for their song "Viva la Vida". On 14 September 2009, the case was dismissed by the California Central District Court, with both parties potentially agreeing to a settlement.
