Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo wants to teach you how to play guitar (you're on your own for vocal lessons, though)!

Hey, what a coincidence, guys! We were, like, just talking about (former?!?) Sonic Youth shredder Lee Ranaldo! You were there for that, weren’t you? Oh. You weren’t? Well, you missed out. We had pizzas delivered and got drunk watching Frasier; it was pretty classy. But either way, onward!

So, yeah, according to a recent post on the ol’ Matablog, Ranaldo has declared his intentions to teach the good gospel of guitar-shreddery to a few lucky New Yorkers. Want to learn more? Yeah, okay! On Monday, October 28, at 8 PM EST, just mosey on over to hip record store Other Music, where Lee will be “hosting his first Guitar Clinic, having a discussion and demonstration of his weapon of choice.” You can share some words of wisdom and even get a free signed poster out of the deal. And… that’s basically all! If you live there, go do it. Easy as getting drunk watching Frasier!

Oh, ha. There’s also a tour he’s promoting. FINE, I’ll post those dates for you, Lee. Sheesh. Just know, though, this is less easy.
