Competition: Win 2 tickets for Steve Vai's LIMS masterclass

The London International Music Show (LIMS) takes place 11-14 June at ExCel, East London, UK.LIMS will feature a host of instrument and product demos, clinics, masterclasses and the chance to buy the latest gear at bargain prices.

Amongst the myriad attractions, we'd wager that star billing belongs to Steve Vai. The guitar virtuoso is giving fans the opportunity to experience three hours of Alien Guitar Secrets; a masterclass in which he discusses music theory, guitar techniques, the music business, and techniques on how to discover and unlock personal musical identity.

Alien Guitar Secrets also includes a Q&A session, and a few lucky attendees will be chosen to jam with Steve in this intimate environment. Click here for the full itinerary.

Places cost £180 each and are strictly limited to 150 people per masterclass, with two sessions taking place across Saturday and Sunday 13-14 June at LIMS.

We have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner, who will be able to chose whether they attend the Saturday or Sunday session.

Note: ticket winners will need to provide their own accommodation and transport to and from the show. The closing date for entries is 29 May.
