    at 0:53 he does some kind of harmonic. I'm not really sure which one it is, it looks kind of like a tapped. If anyone can tell me how he does it then I'd be really grateful.

    He's "pinching" to get an artificial harmonic. Kinda pluck the string with index finger while brielfy letting your thumb touch it.

    Just like Jaco did on the beginning of Birdland, IIRC. Thats how I play it, at least.
  4. I think Satriani's most boneheaded career move was changing bass players some years back. He either a) didn't realize that a large portion of his audience were bass players there to see Stu, or b) he DID know it, and didn't like it.

    Bisonette's a decent bass player... but a replacement for Stu? Come on...
