On 4/2/14 Synyster Gates held his exclusive Master Class for 10 winners. He wrote a special solo for the class in order to specifically showcase certain techniques. “Every note has a purpose,” he would say; walking the students through everything from scales and arpeggios, to economy picking. He answered each person’s questions in such a humble manner, and worked to make a very comfortable atmosphere.
Even though he’s pure Rock n Roll with Avenged Sevenfold, his guitar work during the session had a range from neo-classical to gypsy jazz in style. After playing one more solo (acoustic this time) he met the winners, spoke with them, and took photos with them. Synyster Gates has definitely been successful in his career, and to watch as he shared his knowledge with others was a truly great experience.
