Joe Satriani And The 2016 G4 Experience: Just Pure Guitar Pleasure
So, What Are Your Summer Plans?
Who needs to go to the beach when you’re about to have a blast with the 2016 G4 Experience? For four days and nights, you will get the chance to eat, breathe and sleep all things guitar at the Glen Cove Mansion in Long Island, New York. Does that sound exciting enough? Wait until you hear who you’ll be rubbing elbows with — iconic instrumental rock guitarist Joe Satriani along with Eric Johnson, Mike Keneally and Alex Skolnick as your instructors. But of course, it doesn’t end there. There’s another special guest which will surely make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience: STEVE VAI. You know, the guy who won three Grammy Awards and ranked 10th in Guitar World’s ‘Greatest Guitarist’ list.
Getting taught by the best of the best — whew, that’s every guitarist’s dream. So what’s in store for you when you get there? Joe Satriani explains:
“The four areas I will go over in my workshops are:
• Live performance: insights, techniques, tricks and tips to achieving a successful live performance. Forty-six years of experience playing live on stage has given me unique insights into to making every show fun for both you and your audience.
• Applying modes to your guitar and modern music composition. Real-world application of scales and modes made easy to learn and apply. Let’s bridge the gap between ear training and fretboard memorization.
• Watch me play up close, observe and learn, and ask questions! This class will have an “open” approach based on what you see and hear me play. No question is out-of-bounds, too complex, or too simple to be addressed.
• Writing instrumentals or songs with vocals, How does it change the approach to your guitar playing? Steve Vai and I will talk and demonstrate from experience how we make the distinction work for us.”
Now we’re all hyped up and excited. So here’s the big question: will we see you there? 🙂
