Remember a couple of months ago when I posted about Alex Skolnick and Chris Broderick’s Winter Guitar Retreat? Well now Paul Gilbert is organising an epic guitar retreat of his own called the ‘Paul Gilbert Great Guitar Escape’ at the same venue: Full Moon Resort, Big Indian, NY.
Paul Gilbert’s Great Guitar Escape is a week of workshops, performances, and musical inspiration from Paul Gilbert and some of the most amazing guitarists on the planet… al set in a beautiful mountain retreat.
Paul says, “The most important fuel for my own musical fire has always been seeing and hearing great musicians ‘up close’. I am extremely proud of the musicians that I’ve assembled for my Great Guitar Escape and I look forward to sharing my ideas at my daily workshops as well. I know everyone who attends will leave with powerful ideas and inspiration to use for their own music.”
So who has Paul assembled? Guthrie Govan, Tony MacAlpine, Kid Andersen, Scotty Johnson, Sam Coulson as well as Tom Size for production workshops. It’s cool to see Sam Coulson in there, Paul commented recently that he saw this young UK guitarist on YouTube and he became one of his favourite players! Now this retreat isn’t cheap so I’ll let you check out the prices for yourself here – http://www.greatguitarescape.com/pricing.html, but you are getting 5 days of workshops from some of the greatest guitar players in the world!
