SATCH MEETS THE SWR MO’ BASS: Hopefully everyone knows I’m GK All Day these days by now…but 20 years ago I helped develop this crazy amp called the Mo’ Bass when I used to work at SWR. I never thought I’d get a chance to break out a sound as wild as that head’s BassSynth for a Joe Satriani tune, but along came “Night Scene” and it just seemed like the right thing for it. Fortunately, Joe agreed! This is one of my favorite tracks on the album - maybe it’s a sleeper for some, but the changes, melody, Joe’s playing, Rai Thistlethwayte’s vintage-crunchy Rhodes solo, and Kenny Aronoff’s groove all made it a blast to track. (Make sure to watch to the end where I demo the sound.) ... See MoreSee Less

HACKER ALERT: I really try to keep it light and positive here, but the other day someone tried to hack into my Facebook account and change my password. They weren’t successful. I’m posting this so there’s a public record for Facebook that this happened…but also, just for public informational purposes, the last person who stole something from me ended up a mere three days later in the scene depicted in the picture attached to this post. I’m just saying.

Also, Ellie has been made aware of the situation. It takes a lot to rile her up, but she’s not pleased. Check the first comment for her reaction.

UNITY GAIN TO FOH FTW: Folks might know I use the Xotic Guitars & Effects Bass BB Preamp as my main overdrive, but their EP Booster is pretty slick as well. Perfect for bringing my passive and lower-gain active basses up to unity gain w/my Mike Lull Custom Guitars & Guitarworks Modern 5. FOH gets the same level no matter which axe I grab. And those li'l EP's are cute, too.

(Thanks again to Justin Meldal-Johnsen for hipping me to that Bass BB Preamp over 20 years ago!)

SATRIANI’S MACABRE PARADE: “Dance Of The Spores” is another example of an unusually wild and experimental track on “The Elephants Of Mars”. It’s also producer Eric Caudieux’s strange, special showcase. Check it out.
