FREE Electric Guitar Showcase & Workshop by Az Samad at The Guitar Store


**Call The Guitar Store @ 03-9133 4822 for seat reservation.**


In conjunction with my new solo electric guitar album launch, 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.

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!
