Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing Arpeggios


Joe Satriani’s Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing has some very interesting arpeggios in it.  The things thats most impressive about them is that he uses only the fretting hand to play them.  He puts his picking hand up by the nut to mute the strings he’s not playing.  If you’re looking for a hardcore fretting had workout, try this on for size. Below is the video and the tab.

He demonstrates them at about 24 secs into the video.  Here’s the tab.
