FREE electric guitar showcase/workshop at Music Master Studio by Az Samad

In conjunction with my solo electric guitar album launch of ‘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 an 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.

For this workshop at Music Master Studio, you’ll also get to learn:

1. How to use chords creatively
2. How to improvise lines that sound good to create interesting solos
3. How to connect soloing skills and chord playing skills into one big picture

There will also be a Q & A session where you can ask me about soloing, chords, harmony and improvisation.

Learn more about what you’ve always been curious about. Become a better guitarist today by understanding how to practice!

All this, plus it’s free admission!
