Wanna Attend A Private Guitar Workshop With Steve Vai?
Now through June 30th, 2010, guitarists across the United States are invited to submit their best lead guitar performance using their favorite track off of Steve Vai's "Naked Tracks" album to guitarcenter.com/stevevai.
The online contest will be hosted by The Public Record (http://www.thepublicrecord.com), a new online interactive recording concept that bridges the gap between artist and fan. Ten guitarists, hand-picked by Vai, will be given the opportunity to attend the exclusive Guitar Center Sessions workshop with the legendary guitarist.
"I've had a wonderful career, and have been completely blessed beyond my belief," said Vai. "I know the ins and outs of the business, and am proud to be a part of Guitar Center Sessions so I can share my knowledge with guitarists who are looking to take things to the next level."
Guitar Center Sessions is an ongoing music education based initiative that provides musicians with the chance to network and gain insight and knowledge from their heroes in a comfortable and intimate setting. The commitment is to help musicians further their musical aspirations and provide tools for career growth.
Vai began his career transcribing music for Frank Zappa and also worked with Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth, and Whitesnake. But it is as a solo artist that Vai has made his most valuable contributions, earning him three Grammy wins, eight nominations, and over twenty million records sold worldwide.
