One of my biggest heroes and possibly the most iconic instrumental rock guitar virtuoso of the modern age. So of course I make a singing thread for him before a guitar thread. Laughing

Singing has never been as prominent a feature in Satriani's music as some of his fellow instrumental guitar virtuosos such as Eric Johnson or even Steve Vai, but he has a good sounding voice nonetheless. Never one to push his voice or experiment much with it though, as he usually just uses it as an effect to add a little extra flavor to a song.

C3s and E♭4s in "Going Down". Also "I Like the Rain" spans a sung G2-D4 and has spoken E2s.

You seriously think he's a tenor though? Wondering
