A to Z Challenge - J for JOE!

I've been thinking what to write about for the letter "J." Since we don't much use this letter in our language, I'm some kind of foreign to this letter, so initially nothing came up in my mind. But then, I saw this clip on a friend's wall on facebook, and it came like an answer to my challenge.

Joe Satriani always stands up among many other virtuosos when it comes to musical quality. However, I admire and respect him for his stance about life, symbols, meanings, and the people that deserves respect. He's never been a snob, and proved this once again. At first sight, a Turkish folk poet might seem too far from rock music; however, Satriani knows quality and real depth when he sees one. Thank you as a Turk, Joe, and hail to your musical talent once again! Coming from Satriani: Tribute to Asik Veysel!


  1. Never thought about the problems of not having a particular letter in someone's language! I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.

  2. I really enjoy Joe Satriani's guitar playing. When he teams with Steve Vai and Eric Johnson, it's a veritable electric guitar heaven. Good stuff!

    1. They all play like proving they were born to do only this. If you're into rock music, you should check my music tab, my friend. You may like my music, too.

  3. Never heard him before. Thanks for bringing Joe to my attention. :-)

  4. I need to break out my Satriani cd. I love his song, "Day at the Beach."

  5. Never heard of him..thanks for the intro.

    Hope you’re enjoying the challenge so far!

  8. My husband adores Joe Satriani. Once I even had to endure a whole concert. Needles to say, I'm not a fan, though I appreciate his prowess with a guitar.
