    the top gun anthem is very easy..
    but i don't think it is done by joe satriani, at least the original is by Harold Faltermeyer & Steve Stevens.

    n that screaming is nothing but harmonics.
    Rock'n'Roll isn't just a fashion statement, its a way of life...

    Vibrato technique basically involves vibrating the string in a to and fro motion with your left hand without changing fret position for the note ur playing.

    1st of all, if you are a satch fan YOU gotta listen to satch more intensely. I'm not a satch fan but at least I can make out that Top Gun Anthm' doesn't sound satch at all.

    Did someone say Steve Stevens? I think he is right, although it sounded like Eddie Van Halen to me... maybe the harmonics foxed me.

    The sustain n da screamings are the 'effects' & the 'causes' are - a normal Drive and an Artificial Harmonics.

    One thing I hate about You satch fans' is that - when you play an electric guitar, it is like, your fingers are busy on the guitar processor, not on the fingerboard. So much hooked up with effects! play some good music Satch Fans. Like Father like Son they say. "laughs"
