Summer Song Guitar Lesson Videos – Joe Satriani

In these Summer Song guitar lesson videos you will learn to play Joe Satriani's most beloved track note-for-note.

Besides being extremely catchy, Satriani's Summer Song is chock full of scorching guitar lines that will challenge just about any guitarist.

Take your time through the various sections of this Summer Song guitar lesson video series by not trying to play all of the fast guitar lines at full speed immediately.

You should instead shoot for a complete understanding of the various guitar techniques and look for patterns that are repeated within them.

After that you will start to notice that what once looked like a million random notes, begins to make sense as just a few patterns that are combined and repeated.

Practicing those individual guitar patterns by themselves before tackling the entire thing will help you develop much faster.

By the way, this is true for just about any fast guitar player. Their most difficult guitar parts can usually be broken down into a few basic components that are repeated down a scale or arpeggio etc.

So have fun mastering these lessons, it is almost impossible to not be smiling while playing this great tune. 🙂

      Sorry for the delay in posting the rest of the “Summer Song” videos. The guy that films and edits my lesson videos got pretty sick last week and was unable to work.

      However, we filmed 2 more “Summer Song” lessons yesterday and the next one should go live tomorrow at the latest. Then another one the following day. The whole song should be up by Sat.

      Thanks for your patience! Carl..

      Hey Amir, the best way to develop speed is with repetitive exercises instead of learning songs.

      There are a ton of technique lessons in the advanced section of the site and in the Premium section of the site that will help you with that. After you master those, go back and try to learn those tunes again. 🙂
