Joe Satriani is, as they say, a hard act to follow but we're going to give it a try as in addition to an interview with the great man, we also have a Tom Quayle Tech Session, showing you some of the tricks and techniques that help make Joe the phenomenon he is.

We have live performances from Laurence as well as an interview.
