Satriani shares recording secrets with Vox
Joe Satriani has revealed some of the secrets behind the recording of his new album with supergroup Chickenfoot.
Speaking to Vox Amps, he said the record was mainly put down live, without using any click tracks or sequencers at all.
Although he noted that were a few necessary overdubs during the recording process, he stated that this marked a sharp contrast with previous albums.
"This required that each of us perform during each take as if it were a live show," Satriani commented.
He added that this was quite different to the layered approach he has often used in the past, but said this was a good way of capturing the band's chemistry on each track.
Satriani described the band, which includes members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Van Halen - as tight and heavy.
Indeed, he said it compares with no other group he has previously played in, particularly as each player can improvise so well.
Satriani's interview with Vox comes shortly after he promoted the company's guitar effects pedals at this year's Musik Messe event in Frankfurt.
Speaking at the show, he revealed that he made extensive use of them during the recording of Chickenfoot's album.
