Watch Joe Satriani's Video for 2016 G4 Experience Lineup


Joe Satriani will be hosting a 3rd annual G4 Experience in 2016. Next year’s event will be held at the Glen Cove Mansion in Glen Cove, Long Island, New York from August 8 through 12.

Guests for 2016 include Eric Johnson, Mike Keneally and Alex Skolnick. Steve Vai is also scheduled to make a special guest appearance.

According to Satiani, the event is all about going “Back Where It All Began.” The guitarist not only grew up on Long Island but also got his start there and laid the foundation for his musical career. It’s where he learned musical theory, played his first gigs, and befriended Vai.

The event includes four days and nights of back-to-back classes for all levels of players. This event is all about learning together with other guitarists and tailoring your experience to your needs. Participants get the immersive interaction between student and teacher in each of the clinics and performances by each of the instructors throughout the week.

“Ultimately, this is a great opportunity for everybody to make some incredible connections,” Satriani says. “The students even become a catalyst for my reconnection with the instructors. I guarantee you the students are going feel this incredible atmosphere of camaraderie and feel the musical sharing.”

Registration is now open at this location.
