ALIEN GUITAR SECRETS is an unprecedented, masterclass opportunity offered by Steve Vai to all music students and guitar enthusiasts. After testing the masterclass in various international territories, we are now bringing ALIEN GUITAR SECRETS to the United States. This 3+ hour unique package gives the student a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Steve discuss music theory, guitar techniques, the music business, and most importantly, techniques on how to discover and unlock your personal musical identity. It also includes a question and answer session, and a few attendees will be chosen to jam with Steve in this intimate environment.

Since it's like a guitar lesson, what do you guys think I should know beforehand!? (i.e. scales? songs? improv?)

I'm so nervous! He knows so much, and I, little. What if he asks me a question and I CAN'T ANSWER IT!? AAAHHHH!!


Thoughts?

EDIT: If possible, can I get serious replies? :P the tickets were $250 and this means ALOT to me. THANKS

I'm SOOOOOOOO jealous, man. Seriously though. Just bring your guitar, a small practice amp, and a notebook & writing utensil. And I doubt he'll be asking too many questions, mostly teaching.

There is no such word as "ALOT" if you wanted to explain something like "a whole lot" or " a bunch of stuff" you would need to say "a lot".
