FREE Solo Electric Guitar Showcase/Workshop at Drumstore, Paradigm Mall, PJ by Az Samad

Az Samad | Solo Electric Guitar Showcase/Workshop at Drumstore, Paradigm Mall, PJ
Here’s a message from Az Samad:
In conjunction with my upcoming solo electric guitar album launch (in the deep night/electric poetry), I’m doing a mini-tour across Klang Valley where I will perform a short electric guitar set and combine this with a talk/workshop on the electric guitar.

This is the first event where you can hear some live music & learn more about the process behind the scenes. I’ll explain how I use looping & share tips on how to improvise.

Free Admission.
