Description
Joe Satriani was my guitar teacher many years ago when he first came to San Francisco. I decided to do this song as a homage to him. He taught me how to think about all the instruments in a song and how they played off of each other. His first album was all him, so I decided to do the same thing by playing all the instruments like he taught me. Enjoy!

Jealous!
I can definitely hear the Satch influence here. I once viewed a video of him discussing articulation that made me realize I had been playing guitar like a chump (he's got lots of tutorial vids on YouTube and must be an amazing mentor to work with!). You really pegged the style of his "Alien" EP on this track. Your work is TIGHT! Nicely infectious groove and the lead churns out non-stop fireworks as you circle the thematic riff.

P.S. Extra points for having released a lovecraft-inspired work (per your bio). Ia Ia Cthulhu Fhtagn!

UFOs dancing
Love the way you make the guitar talk and song. Really nice use of different registers, harmony, clean drumming, separated mix. But the playful and masterfully played guitar solo is what shines through. Flies, this track. UFOs dancing.

You Are.....
Just a bad DUDE....Mad lines ......

It's all in the timing and you've got that down to a T......

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right place at the right time and the instrument will play itself. J.S. Bach

The Alien
You have all the moves - this would fit in any stadium in the world! The fact that you've played all the instruments is especially impressive, as they all sound real. Professional quality music!

Out of this world!
My girlfriend would call this wank rock. I love good wank rock. I love to wank and I really appreciate a good wanker and Eric... YOU are a great wanker! Love the guitar lines, licks and tones. You sure can play brotha! Good song structure and great performance! I'm a sucker for harmony guitar (huge thin lizzy fan here) and you even scratched that itch. and that chord you're playing in the lead at 1:58 is sick! Love it!

great guitar playing again
and in fact I like this more than the other track I commented on.

But "all the instruments ... and how they play off each other"? Your rhythm guitar is basically chuggin away at the same rhythm for 3 minutes straight. If there is any interaction I'm missing it.

Foundation
The Rhythm guitar is a part of the foundation of the part. This isn't three chord rock. If you pull the solos out it could be used as a theme song for a TV show or used in a movie soundtrack. The drums, bass and rhythm guitar are a strong base for the solos to interplay with moving around it and playing off of it.
