It was a glorious day in Union Square Park on June 21. Just the right kind of weather for hundreds of guitarists to gather and jam for Mass Appeal: Guitars, an annual event that’s part of the Make Music Festival.

In May, Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates presented his Master Class with Synyster Gates, a program developed to recognize and reward musicians with the opportunity to learn from a famous guitarist in an engaging setting.
