ALIEN GUITAR SECRETS is an unprecedented masterclass opportunity offered by Steve Vai to all music students and guitar enthusiasts. This two to three hour unique experience gives the attendees a unique opportunity to hear Steve discuss music theory, guitar technique, the music business, and most importantly, methods to discover and unlock your personal musical identity. In this class Steve shares his rich experience as an independent musician and offers tremendously inspiring, and at times deeply esoteric, insight into being the best you can be at your craft.
Steve also plays along to a few select backing tracks, and also offers a question and answer session, and the opportunity for a few attendees to jam or personally interact with Steve during the class.
Availability is VERY limited for each masterclass – so please be aware that these classes will sell quickly.
