A HOLLYWOOD guitarist has chosen Portsmouth to host one of only two master classes he is taking in the UK.

Tosin Abasi, of progressive metal band Animal as leaders, will be demonstrating his shredding technique on an eight-string guitar at Nevada Music in Farlington on June 19 from 6.30pm.

Using the lower strings of his guitar to play bass lines whilst playing chords and melodies over the top with his right hand, Tosin will also explain composition techniques such as the double thumb stroke.

Tickets are £5.
