An Invitation from Gus G

Hey everyone! I’m pleased to announce and invite you to the very first Guitar Weekend Apocalypse! The last couple of years it’s been in the back of my mind to do a special event like that and this year I finally got serious about it! 


Teaming up with Nemesis Guitar School who are experts at guitar teaching and guiding players of all levels, we chose a beautiful location at the 5-star Lucy Hotel in Kavala, Greece. The principal idea was to share my musical knowledge and 20 year professional experience in the business with other guitarists and pass some of this knowledge on. But I won’t be doing this alone. I’m excited to have guest instructors Andy James, Nick Johnston & Mike Dawes joining us! These guys are game changers in today’s guitar world and with their own unique styles, I’m pretty sure everyone will be 

leaving this camp wiser! We’re aiming to make you a better player and reach the next level. There’s lots of topics to be covered, scales, techniques, improvisation, composition, music business, how to choose the best gear that fits your playing and so much more. These are going to be in-depth masterclasses with each instructor that you won’t be able to get anywhere else. 


On top of that, we plan to have other fun activities, such as city excursions and visits to the ancient Greek ruins, personal hangouts, photo opportunities and of course a final performance & jam of all 4 of us for the attendees. 


Get ready for the shred weekend of a lifetime! www.guitarweekendapocalypse.com, gus g, guitar camp, thessaloniki, ska, apocalypse, shred, solo, ozzy, masterclass , steve van academy, joe satriani g4
