This Is Your Chance To Boost Your Playing Confidence and Meet Like Minded Acoustic Guitarists. It's Going To Be Fun...

Have you ever had a time in your life when your guitar skills soared?

You know, those times when you feel inspired, energised and positive about your playing.

For me, this happens the most when I'm playing guitar with other people.

Playing with others is the best confidence building technique I can think of. Second only to performing with other people.

It's such a buzz.

When you play with others it strengthens your feeling of rhythm and timing.

Music is meant to be shared. It's mass communication.

Sharing and learning with others is a natural progression that most guitarists eventually aspire to.

And that's exactly why the LGIL Guitar Retreats were born. To give you the opportunity to learn, perform and share your playing in a supportive environment with like minded people.

LGIL Guitar Retreat - April 2022

Indulge Your Passion Without Distraction

The main goal of the retreat is to boost your playing confidence and inspire your practice.

The full itinerary isn't planned yet, but the retreat will cover rhythm and fingerstyle acoustic playing.

There will also be time for one to one tuition with Drue and Myles.

They'll be group workshops, group performances (organised by skill level), jamming and open mic performances in the evenings.

If You're Feeling Hesitant or Not Quite Ready For An Event Like This Please Read On...

We all get those creeping voices of doubt that stop us from taking action and becoming better guitarists.

For an event like this the common voices of doubt are:

Fear of being the worst guitar player in the room.

Fear of being judged by other players.

Fear that you're wasting other people's time because you're not good enough.

Fear of other people hearing you playing badly.

If you're hearing these doubting voices please understand this...

First of all, everyone who's ever attended an event like this has felt the same.

Second, no one cares if you're the worst or best player in the room.

As a teacher I just want you to feel inspired, enjoy yourself and improve your playing.

Everyone in the room will want the same thing. We're all there to learn, encourage and support each other with every workshop.

Don't let FEAR stop you from attending.
