G3

6 posts in this topic

Its two years old already but I just got this G3 DVD. Recorded in Denver in 03 Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen Old guitar player and fan of Joe that I am I just sat and watched in awe of the talent of todays modern Wizards, separately. Then in the end they do three jams together. The second was Jimi's Little Wing and I just feel apart. Was so good to see that these masters paid tribute and remember from where they came. Bless ya Jimi ! Anger, he smiles .towering in shiny metalic purple armor Queen jelously, Envy waits behind him .her firey green gown sneers at the grassy ground Blue are the life giving waters taking for granted .they quietly understand Once happy Turquoise armys lay opposite .ready, but wonder why the fight is on But their all bold as love Just ask the Axis My Red is so confident .he flashes trophies of war and ribbons of euphoria Orange is young, full of daring .But very unsteady for the first go round My Yellow in this case is not so mellow .in fact Im trying to say its frightened like me And all these emotions of mine .keep holding me from giveing my life to a Rainbow like you But, Im as bold as love Jimi Hendrix 1967

John Petrucci from Dream Theater played G3 while in between DT albums. I'd love to have heard what that was like.

I really liked G3 with Eric Johnson...I love Steve and Joe. Especially Joe. Surfing with the Alien is a great album.

Who played with Johnson ? Who played with Petrucci ? I see now Ill be needing to get more of these. Ive watched that 3 times now. Satriani is my favorite instrumentalist, he can really lay down the grove and then shred it/old style with a side of Satch. Petrucci is my favorite composer +, he and the rest of Dream Theater is todays Mozart, Bach Then theres John Mclauklin (sp) and Steve Morse the god fathers of fuseing all different styles of music into total kaos that makes sense. I bet anyone of these guys playing with Petrucci would be a bit intimidating. Well I recommend this one if you want to see three different approaches to guitar wizardry come together in an amazing harmonic jammin symphony.

JP played with JS and SV...I think that was in 01. Joe and Steve are usually a given on the G3 tour. It's the third guy they usually swap out. JS is a pretty good at playing fast arrangements. Same for SV...David Lee Roth picked him for his band shortly after he left Van Halen to keep some of that VH sound. JP I think is a level above both, in the sense that he can play very complex arrangements and make it look easy. This may be a little harder to find, but Monsters of Rock 1995 featured JP playing with non other than Eddie Van Halen, and according to my friend, Eddie couldn't keep up with him. I'd really like to see Eddie have a go-around with G3, to give himself something to do in between VH albums.

Well now EV was a pioneer of that particular sound that SV and JS expanded on but a decade later, and thrity thousand other shreaders copied. EV is riff monster extrodanaire, much like JS, they both can lay down some serious boogie. SV is more of the Wizard type that experiments with different sounds and tecnique ideas, his improvision is more spacey. But Im actually not really fimilar with his work other than "Eat em and Smile" and "Crossroads". IM really smoked in the acute acuracy and notes per minute, he actually did added alot but unfortunately he is very unidirrectional and hes so fast you have heard everything he does in less than a minute. His career began in like 84 believe it or not. IM had a very big hand in bringing Classical to Metal. this guy from Symphony X got it going on too, cant think of his name of hand but hes very diverse like JP,classical like IM, and has a darn good sound and band behind him.
