How many hours joe satriani practised guitar?

When I started playing the guitar, I always wanted to know how my favorite guitarist became so awesome and how did they practice. Back in the days when I started playing the guitar there were hardly any resources and I also couldn't find a teacher.I took some lessons and but I am also 50% self taught :-) I always curious how many hours do pros practice their guitar. I felt if I could practice like them, i could become almost like them. LoL, however that has still not happened till now.

My favorite guitarist is Joe satriani, so I will start with him. This video says that there was a time when he used to practice for more than 12 hours a day.

Korg GA-30 Ultra Compact Guitar and Bass Tuner review

I bought the Korg GA-30 Ultra Compact Guitar and Bass Tuner for my guitar and this tuner is awesome. Many people like to use a pitch pipe to tune their guitar but I think that it takes times for beginner guitarist to develop their ears to tune the guitar properly using a pitch pipe.

Guitar tuning is a difficult thing and I recommend beginner guitarists to use an electronic tuner instead. There many reasons behind this. One reason is that the beginner guitarist's ears are not developed so they find it difficult to to recognize different notes. But this doesn't mean this tuner is only for beginner guitarists.

This tuner can be used by all the guitarist whether they are beginner, intermediate or advanced.

To tune the guitar, you just have to play the string and look at the needle type meter. When you will play a string, the needle will move on the tuner and it will tell you what note you are playing. You can change the settings to Guitar or bass depending on what you are tuning.

You can tune an acoustic guitar without a cable and the tuner is sharp to pick up the sounds from your acoustic guitar

There is an input where you can plugin your electric guitar with a cable and also a bass guitar with the cable. When you insert the cable and play the strings, the meter will move. After that, you just have to tighten to losen string according to the note you want. The battery life is also very good and it lasts for a long time. Mine lasted for more than a year.

So if you want that perfect tuning and want to sound awesome, buy this  Korg GA-30 Ultra Compact Guitar and Bass Tuner from Amazon by clicking on the link below

The Total Rock Guitarist review - Tobias Hurwitz

This is my honest review about the The Total Rock Guitarist. This is an awesome book and anyone who wants to learn to play the rock guitar should buy this book.

I have learned from this book and this book was given to me as a present from my brother and what a good present this was. This books comes with a CD, so you can listen to the exercises and licks that are in the book.

For all the exercises, there are tabs and also music notation. There are rock licks, strumming exercises, exotic scales, pentatonic scales, music theory and many other things.

I think it is an all in one book and should buy this book if you want to become an awesome guitarist
