Once again, Satriani attracted some of the instrument’s foremost talents as instructors, including Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Alex Skolnick, Mike Keneally, and more.

New York, NY (April 13, 2016) -- Joe Satriani has announced the details for the 2016 G4 Experience at Glen Cove Mansion in Long Island, NY, August 8-12, 2016. Packages are on-sale now. Once again, Satriani attracted some of the instrument’s foremost talents as instructors, including Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Alex Skolnick, Mike Keneally, and more.

Over the course of four days, campers will live, eat, breathe, and sleep guitar in the company of these legends. 200 spots are currently available. Make sure to sign up now as this event will sell out.

Now in its third year, the G4 Experience quite literally brings the Grammy Award-nominated multiplatinum guitar legend and innovator back home. Satriani famously grew up in the Long Island area, even cutting his teeth at venues in the surrounding neighborhoods. One of his very first students was none other than best friend and fellow native Steve Vai. That makes Glen Cove Mansion the ultimate location for the G4 Experience.

“Going home just makes this year even more special,” he comments. “It adds a deeper meaning for myself and all of the instructors involved. That’s one of the big reasons that I’m so excited for you to join us near my old stomping grounds. Overall though, 2016 sees the G4 Experience once again evolve, preserving everything attendees loved about previous years, while adding a new dimension. I hope to see you there!”

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
