Clarens Backpackers and Inn
8 – 10 June 2018 (Clarens)
The Dan Patlansky Guitar Weekend is a 3 day experience comprising FOUR WORKSHOPS in which Dan covers theory and practical on:
  • Improvising
  • Licks and Riffs
  • Chords & Harmony
  • Tone and Gear
There are many hours of jamming with other people that have the same passion for guitar playing. You’ll eat sleep and breathe guitar playing for 3 solid days!
Accommodation at the Clarens Inn Backpackers is in the cosy and un-fussy bunkhouses. Although breakfasts and dinners are included in the package, guitarists need to cater for their own lunches. A shared kitchen, braai area, coffee shop and the Hub Cap Bar on site covers all you might need. Internet access is available.
