Avenged Sevenfold Guitarist Synyster Gates Offers Master Class Contest

Synyster Gates Master Class
Guitar Center

Ever dream of a guitar lesson from Avenged Sevenfold’s Synyster Gates? Well now Guitar Center and Schecter Guitar Research are making that a real possibility for a chosen few.

Their new ‘Master Class with Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold’ will give ten lucky guitarists the opportunity to fly out to Los Angeles V.I.P. style to attend the very special class. As if that wasn’t enough, the winners will also win a Schecter Synyster Gates Special electric guitar, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Schecter factory and an Ernie Ball accessory prize pack.

Gates, who co-developed the idea, is very excited about the endeavor. “Avenged Sevenfold has always been a band that champions musicality,” said Gates. “I’m passionate about the art of guitar, and this Master Class is the perfect opportunity to help further the skills and careers of like-minded musicians.”

Guitarists interested in participating can download one of seven signature Avenged Sevenfold tracks here and add their best original guitar performance to it. The videos will be posted and shared and ultimately judged on the criteria of overall performance, authenticity, originality, technique, and style.

Submissions will be accepted July 15 through Sept. 15 and will be ranked through social networking. Gates will then get into the mix, personally selecting the ten winners. Watch the video below for all the details.
