A five-minute video clip of guitar legend George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) showing off some of his new gear, including his new Randall "Lynch Box" amp, during a May 18, 2007 clinic in Chicago, Illinois has been posted at YouTube.Lynch is offering an intensive guitar education program known as the George Lynch Dojo, a monthly instructional series that allows for students to take advantage of George's techniques via video, sound files, and formal music/tablature available at his web site. While the Dojo program's success is unarguable, sometimes the best instructional environment happens in a face-to-face setting. To facilitate this, Lynch has set up a two-day seminar and workshop scheduled for June 9-10, 2007, to be held at the Fourpoints (LAX) Sheraton hotel. Lynch will be on hand to host the event, which includes two days of guitar bedlam and instruction by Lynch himself as well as a team of well-known special guests and industry speakers. To accommodate multiple players of varying skill levels, the participants will be broken into smaller groups for individualized instruction. "There's a responsibility for an artist to pass along his knowledge to new generations of players," said Lynch. "Our two-day seminar represents an excellent opportunity for guitarists to get an intense amount of knowledge put in front of them, in a way that they can count on will lead to their immediate improvement as a player and composer." All amplification for the event is provided (as well as complete catering), but students are asked to bring their own guitars with them. Near the conclusion of the weekend, a "super jam" will be held, along with the presentation of certificates, swag, and a DVD of the event. Individuals can register for the event at www.georgelynch.com. Special group rates for multiple attendees are available by calling 800-529-4683 and mentioning the George Lynch Guitar Academy.
