Synopsis by Mark Deming
Fans of rock guitar playing will tell you that Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Yngwie Malmsteen are three of the most technically gifted pickers on the face of the Earth. Boasting digital dexterity and blazing speed, all three gentlemen have expanded the sonic boundaries of hard rock with their innovative styles, and this performance video finds them joining forces for a concert on the 2003 G3 Tour. G3 Live in Denver features solo sets from the three guitarists, as well as a closing jam in which they attempt to match each other, riff for riff. Satriani's set includes "Satch Boogie" and "The Extremist", Vai performs "Triple Neck Piece" and "I'm the Hell Outta Here," while Malmsteen rips through "Baroque and Roll" and "Far Beyond the Sun."
