Take A Guitar Break
6th May 2005
There is a company offering guitariists of all standards weekend breaks in
decent hotels which might interest you.
The Guitar Break weekends feature top guitar tutors such as Nevlle Marten,
Jason Sidwell, Dave Kilminster, Phil Hilborne, Guthrie Govan and David Mead.
Guitar Break strives to bring you the best guitar tuition to all the weekend
Over the course of a Guitar Break weekend (6pm Friday evening to 5pm Sunday
afternoon), guitarists of a similar standard will play together, receive top
advice in their chosen style of music, jam with renowned tutors, learn new
skills and go home musically refreshed and inspired.
All meals are included, with free tea, coffee and light refreshments on tap all
day. Classes start at 10am and finish at 5pm. On the Saturday evening the
tutors will play for the students, and those who fancy it can get up and play,
sing and generally make merry.
Well, that;s what they say on their website. Check it out for yourself at
