Players of all ages, levels, and styles are welcome at the Great Guitar Escape. Whether you’ve been ripping up the fretboard for years, or you just know a couple of chords, there are plenty of new musical ideas waiting for you here.

From rock to blues to metal to jazz and more, Paul’s handpicked team of guitarists will give you insight into the techniques, styles, and life of the modern, working musician. The artistic and the practical will come together before your eyes and ears.

This is the second year of The Great Guitar Escape, and Paul plans to make it even better than before. "I listened to the feedback from the students from last year, and this year I plan to focus the camp even more on guitar and the individual player. There will be amazing seminars from every instructor, but I want to hear the students too. Our guitars need to have some conversations with each other!"

Every evening you will witness all the instructors come together for intimate, once-in-a-lifetime jam sessions. Gear will be available for students to jam late into the night as well. Just bring your guitar, get ready learn, jam, make friends, and rock!

Monday to Friday you will have access to all workshops, seminars, gourmet meals, performances, and camp activities. The only thing you have to do after signing up is get here!

All camp activities will be held at Full Moon Resort. Full Moon features an eclectic array of comfortable, rustic country-inn accommodations including simple B&B style guest rooms with shared hallway baths, guest rooms with private baths, country cottages with living rooms and kitchens… and even “luxury camping” in a yurt! “Primitive” campsites are also available.
