Clarens Guitar Weekend 2018

Whether you’re a novice player or an old hand, this is one experience you cannot miss. From group to one-on-one sessions, Dan will give you the inside scoop on his techniques and all the tips and tricks that has made him one of the most highly respected Blues Rock guitarists in the world.


Clarens Backpackers and Inn


7 – 9 December 2018


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.
