Grammy Award-winning guitar virtuoso Steve Vai and guitarist/media visionary Andy Alt will announce the launch of GuitarTV.com, a new 24-hour streaming video channel, during a live press conference to be held at Musicians Institute on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 noon PDT. ??
Designed with guitar enthusiasts, players, and cogniscenti in mind, GuitarTV features non-stop programming of the world's best guitar performances, interviews, lessons, live broadcasts, and such unique features as an interactive virtual guitar interface. Visitors will be able to research an artist, access song tablature, and even purchase signature guitars and amplifiers, albums, or concert tickets, all from within the site. ??
Attendance at the live event is restricted mainly to MI students and staff; a limited number of free tickets are available to the public by emailing MI Guitar Program Director Jude Gold. Web surfers can watch the press conference live online by registering here.
All who register to view online will be entered in a random drawing for an Ibanez JEM model electric guitar. The lucky winner must be present online during the live event to claim the prize.
