Steve Vai

ACM was both awestruck and honoured to welcome one of the music industries most experienced and legendary guitarists on the planet… Mr Steve Vai.

sv2  In an ACM exclusive, one off masterclass, Steve kicked off the proceedings with a jaw dropping showcasing of his unique sound and talent which was met with a standing ovation. Then came the opportunity which, for many, would be a once in a lifetime chance to quiz a living legend about every aspect of his experiences, both in music and life in general.

After another mind-blowing performance, a few lucky students got the opportunity the many musicians would only ever be able to dream of… Jamming with a fully fledged legend!

“I was so scared! At first when I started to play, it felt like the pick was made of ice as I struggled to grip it due to the fear-driven perspiration that my hands were suffering from, but once I looked over and saw Steve smiling at me, my confidence grew and before I knew what was happening, I was swapping chops with a legend!”
