Speaking in an interview with CFOX, Metallica solo guitarist, Kirk Hammett explained what happened in his very first guitar lesson from Joe Satriani. Here’s the statement (via Blabbermouth):

It was actually very poignant. His first lesson to me was, ‘Learn your lesson. Don’t waste your time, don’t waste my time. I expect you to know everything that I gave you in a week’s time.

I was, like, ‘This guy is serious.’ But you know what? I did it, and he kicked my ass. After a while, I was taking two lessons a week from him.

I became so thirsty for what he had to offer me, I was just, like, ‘Bring it on! It’s all making sense. I wanna learn more.’

I have to say, Joe Satriani has always played that way. Ever since I first met him, he’s always played incredibly — with all the sounds and all the bar stuff and tapping and crazy licks that no one’s ever played, and still probably never plays. I mean, he’s just such a unique individual as a musician.
