Video: Avenged Sevenfold's Synyster Gates Performs and Discusses Technique at Master Class at Guitar Center Hollywood

Last month, Avenged Sevenfold lead guitar Synyster Gates teamed up with Guitar Center and Schecter Guitar Research for Master Class with Synyster Gates, a program developed to recognize and reward talented musicians with the opportunity to learn from a famed guitarist in an engaging setting. Ten artists out of thousands of submissions from across the country were handpicked by Gates to fly out to the intimate Los Angeles master class.

“Avenged Sevenfold has always been a band that champions musicality,” Gates commented of the class. “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.”

Check out the clip from the Master Class below, and let us know what you think in the comments. Avenged Sevenfold will be on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest this summer.
