Browsing through the solo videos I realized in terror that there was not one Joe Satriani cover on there. Considering the amount of talent among the YouTube guitarist LRRG's, that's just wrong; an insult, even.

I picked Japanese LRRG howaiti and his rendition of "Cool #9" (Live in San Francisco version) to be the first ever Satch guitar cover to be featured here. Why? Was it his great playing? His impecable playing? The fact that he doesn't seem to miss one note? His beautiful Ibanez guitar?... well, yeah, sure; but also... awwww look at the kitty!
