    What if? ... private guitar lesson from your PRS artist

    Hi everyone, have been thinking about which artist I would most like to have a one on one lesson with, I know dreaming, but hey.

    Wondering if you could have a lesson with any PRS artist which one would it be & why?

    Mine would be Al Di Meola to improve my timing & composition.

    Maybe it could be part of the 2013 Experience as a prize??

    Cheers

    Off the top of my head, Neal Schon, Zach Myers or Orianthi.
    Not sure I could pay attention long enough to learn from her, and not get caught staring.
    I'd bet Gary Grainger would be another great lesson also.

    2nd on the list would be Irwin Thomas, remember seeing him 20 year playing in a Van Halen tribute band when he was like 17, he nailed it.

    I've had a lesson with Cody Kilby, and hope to get another one. Awesome player, even better person.

    He's pretty sick. I wish he had more availability.

    But he is soooo good!

    Me, I'd pick Akerfeldt (the Gilmour of the metal world!).

    Hard to narrow it down to one when my first thought was Davy Knowles or David Grissom or Dave Weiner or Tony McManus or Howard Leese or Donna Grantis. Then when you toss in Emil, Bernie Marsden, Jim McCarty, Akerfeldt, Ricky Skaggs, Cody Kilby...that's a lot of learning!!!

    Some lessons from Bernie and Davy would be cool. Not only could I learn something from them but they seem like a couple of good blokes to have a pint and a chin wag with.

    Also love some lessons from Tony McManus, but really would just close my eyes and let him play!

    This is definitely true. Each of those guys have made my Experiences special memories with their regular guy attitudes and how nice they are.

    Ralph Spight from the Victim's Family. Or Larry LaLonde from Primus. Maybe Chris Haskett, formerly of Rollins Band.
