YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!

So today, after Alessandro mentioned it, I have secured myself a seat for Steve Vai's Alien Guitar Secrets Masterclass in Perth, Australia on the 20th of October.

I'm so excited I'm shaking.

Unfortunately you cannot take instruments into the class so that's a major bummer but I'm trying every avenue to try and get my custom signed by Steve. WOW, to actually meet, or at the very least, be in the same room as this legend will be an utter privelige.

Wish me luck...... I'm gonna beg, or whatever needs to be done to make this happen. It would complete my guitar, and my dreams!!

He came to Toronto a few years ago right near my Birthday...really regret missing it.

Have fun, I'll bet it'll be great! I hope you get to bring your guitar somehow, that would be icing on the cake for sure. It looks great, btw!

Well done to you!

It would be really interesting to hear what Steve would think of it...

Whatever the case, it doesn't matter now. It's all in the past and now is the present and in the future...like five days time, I may be playing it. May the freight company be swift with their delivery.

Ah Hah!!
So I'm going to pretend that "Steve's gotta see your guitar" was my idea all along (even though it probably wasn't )

Oh man, you've GOT to get Steve to acknowledge your guitar in person.
That would be truly epic.
Hope you manage it!

Either way, enjoy the class. Lucky bugger

Re: YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!

How are people supposed to take part of a "Master Class" without having a guitar with them? I've never attended one, but it just seems kind of odd.

Re: YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!

I know right? I guess we just sit there and listen to him wax lyrical for two and a half hours.

So bummed about the no guitar policy. I really thought it was meant to be that I got the guitar in the mail then bought ticket the day after. Still, I'm gonna hassle the organisers......

Re: YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!

Never been a Vai show around here afaik but Yngwie was here about ten years ago. The fire marshall was there limiting admission, so I could not go in until someone came out. It was not a guitar clinic, but he did sign a couple of my CD's and I got to touch his Stratocaster! x.x

Nope, it's just a clinic tour.

I'm interviewing him tomorrow. If you have any question suggestions, let me know and I'll see if I can fit them in.

Dude, beg him to spare just one minute while he's in Perth to provide a signature on a Design A jem guitar built by a raving Vai maniac since he was with Roth in the early eighties.

LOL, I wish.

You lucky bugger.
