ALIEN GUITAR SECRETS is an unprecedented, master class opportunity offered by Steve Vai to all music students and guitar enthusiasts. After a hugely successful launch in the USA we are bringing ALIEN GUITAR SECRETS exclusively to the London International Music Show. This 3 hour unique experience 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 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.

Availability is limited to 150 people per master class – so please be aware that these places will sell quickly.

ALIEN GUITAR SECRETS is a 3 hour experience and is broken down as follows:

1. When I Was A Little Boy
- Introduction
2. Building the Church
- Short and long term musical goals
3. Essence
- Basic guitar playing concepts and music theory
4. Under it All
- Finding and cultivating your own uniqueness on the instrument
5. Midway Creatures
- Discussion about the music business
6. K’m Pee-Du-Wee
- Bathroom Break
7. Head Cuttin’ Duel
- Jamming with Steve
8. Answers
- Q & A With Steve
9. Here I Am
- Meet & Greet, autographs and photos with Steve

The 11am start could make it a little tricky (the trains do their engineering at weekends over here causing delays) otherwise it means a hotel at London prices etc etc. And £180 in the present economic climate...I shall have to think about this carefully-but not for too long!

Any chance of this event being videoed and released? The clips of last years even on Youtube were very basic but truly excellent so it wouldn't require anything fancy!

Was great if the "fox group" re-unite again :P

I agree with you, Seraphim/Anibal. To reunite the Fox group would be great :D . The dates are not ideal to me because they are during the period of exams for my students so it could be very hard to find the time to go to London (and home). I have to wait to see how my schedule for June and exams will be before I decide.
