Learn the Icons From the Masters

Jeff Beck

Presented by: Jennifer Batten


Often called a ‘guitarist’s guitarist,’ Jeff Beck is one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock. Jennifer memorized two of Beck’s albums; “Blow by Blow” and “Wired,” and then had the privilege of touring in his band for three years. She’ll give you an insider’s view of original “Beck-isms,” a rig rundown, and explore his many ground-breaking inventions and contributions to the world of guitar through the decades.

Charlie Christian

Presented by: Daniele Gottardo

Daniele Gottardo

An important early performer on the electric guitar, Charlie Christian was key in the development of bebop and cool jazz. His single-string technique, combined with amplification, helped bring the guitar out from the rhythm section and into the forefront as a solo instrument. Daniele will break down the musical thinking behind what exactly made Charlie a national treasure, with plenty of hands-on examples to take away and practice yourself.

Joe Satriani

Presented by: Dave Martone

15-time Grammy Award nominee Joe Satriani has sold over 10 million albums, making him the most commercially successful solo guitarist of all time. Dedicated to the artistry of the instrument, this guitar hero has six gold and platinum discs to his credit. Joe provided a guest solo on Martone’s tune “Nail Grinder.” Dave will dissect some of the crucial elements in understanding the techniques, writing, and overall style of what makes ‘Satch’ resonate with so many over the last 3 decades.

Eddie Van Halen

Presented by: Jude Gold

Regarded as one of the all-time greatest guitar players in rock history, Eddie Van Halen hoped his guitar playing would make people ‘feel something,’ and, boy, did it! Jude Gold, Jefferson Starship guitarist, LA editor of Guitar Player Magazine and one-time member of the Van Halen tribute band ‘Hot For Teacher,’ will guide you through some of what made Eddie’s talent so special. He’ll demonstrate some of Eddie’s most inventive and ground breaking techniques for you to practice on your own.
