The G4 Experience takes what started out as the G3 Tour to the next level by turning infusing education and mentoring into its already entertaining platform. And with big name guitar wizards joining the camp as instructors, this is easily an event that many guitarists want to be part of, regardless of playing level.

Joe Satriani has announced the venue for the upcoming 2016 G4 Experience, it will take place in his home town of Long Island, NY, more specifically at the Glen Cove Mansion. This makes the event even more special for Satriani, and considers it as a homecoming event, not just for him but for his former student turned guitar virtuoso Steve Vai as well, who also hail from Long Island.

The official website quotes Joe saying: "The G4 Experience in 2016 will literally take me back home. In the past two years the camp was in beautiful Cambria, CA. but we started looking at the East Coast for a variety of cool reasons. The idea of Long Island came up and I thought it would be interesting because of the obvious connection. Funnily enough, Glen Cove Mansion, where we’ll be August 8-12, 2016, is very close to where I’m from. Once we chose the spot, the 2016 G4 Experience took on a very special meaning. We never repeat the same formula, but this homecoming really helped us reshape next year’s camp."

The upcoming camp is scheduled for four days from August 8 to August 12, 2016. And it will be full of practical lectures and real-life tips from pro guitarists that include Eric Johnson, Alex Skolnick, Mike Keneally and many more. And as mentioned, Joe Satriani's long time friend and also a Long Island native Steve Vai will be joining this year's camp, which incidentally completes the original G3 line up of 1996.

To ensure that the campers are able to participate and given attention by the teachers, the event is limited to only 200 participants. So signing up early is a must if you want to secure a spot before the event sells out.

Joe Satriani concludes: "Going home just makes this year even more special. It adds a deeper meaning for myself and all of the instructors involved. That’s one of the big reasons that I’m so excited for you to join us near my old stomping grounds. Overall though, 2016 sees the G4 Experience once again evolve, preserving everything attendees loved about previous years, while adding a new dimension. I hope to see you there!"

With all these big name guitarists headlining this 4 day event, the price tag for joining the event is well beyond the average camp, starting at $1,899.00. For more information on the event, and to reserve spot, you can head over to G4 Experience.
