The Guinness World Record For The Largest Guitar Lesson Ever Is Set

by Emilio Pérez Miguel on March 24, 2011

A new Guinness world record has been set by Grammy-winning guitarist Steve Vai and Berkleemusic (the online division of the Berklee College of Music), namely the record for the most massive online guitar lesson ever.

This live lesson took place at the beginning of March, and it was broadcast from Livestream Studios in New York City. On the whole, 7000 people attended (with 4455 alone tuning in during the first 15 minutes).

Just as importantly, Berkleemusic donated $7,000 (a dollar for every attendee) to the Steve Vai Online Scholarship Fund at Berkleemusic.

This is the video for the record-setting lesson.
