Private guitar lesson for $1676 per hour – oh the teacher is Steve Vai…

Win (buy) an hour with Steve Vai on eBay. Current bid is $1676 and it still has 6 days to go. Proceeds go to combat brain disease of his buddy, Allen somebody.

So what would that lesson be like? I mean, how much Vai can one absorb in only an hour? Given that the man is millions of years ahead of the average guitarist, what could the ‘man in the street’ possibly absorb of his DNA during that time? 

Some advice to the lucky winner:

  1. Bring a tape along of something you want to learn – maybe Michael row the boat ashore or perhaps some Yngwie.
  2. Don’t say ‘well recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of jazz – can we do some choruses of Blue Moon?’.
  3. Try to measure his fingers.
  4. Ask to borrow a pick and ‘accidentally’ fail to return it.
  5. Halfway during the lesson feign diarrhea and ask Steve if you can use his toilet, then use that time to sneak around his basement to find the flying saucer that he arrived on Earth in.

Seriously – if I had an hour with Steve Vai what would I ask him? I suppose I would play like normal for a while and then say ‘ok – make me a shitload better – I paid $1676 for this, so you better deliver, bro’!’.
