Entering its fourth year Dweezilla 2013 is offering the most comprehensive modern guitar training course. The charge is summed up in this year's camp battle cry: Learn and Destroy! Propelled by this mantra the goal of this incredible gathering is to turn you on to innovative playing and tone creation methods that are designed to inspire you to break down your barriers and have the confidence to open your eyes to playing without boundaries.

Dweezil and his crew want nothing more than to help you break down any walls that may be blocking your creativity thus allowing you the freedom to explore your truest musical expression. To make this goal a reality as well as bolster the the learning experience Dweezil is offering a completely new approach to the Dweezilla concept. “The guitar is such a versatile instrument and deserves to have a multi-contextual training program. I wanted to create an environment where distinctively modern styles could be taught in conjunction with in-depth tone laboratory workshops. Tone is the delivery system to the audience. The character of your sound is as important as the notes you play and I think it’s important to explore this topic in detail.”

Dweezilla 2013 will take place July 1-5 at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York. This guitar summit will feature specially invited guest instructors. “I had the idea to ask guitarists whom I consider to be at the forefront of modern guitar to join me as teachers this year. I’m really excited about it because besides being amazinguitarists they are also extremely adept at imparting their knowledge in easy, compartmentalized ways.”

As always students of all skill levels are welcome. However, this year's classes are specifically designed to accommodate smaller groups of students with comparable skill levels so that they can assimilate the information at an appropriate pace. This will also allow students to find the best practice groups for their playing level bolstering lesson review and implementation.

Don't worry - the teaching staff has a mind bending assortment of lessons replete with finger twisting exercises and insanely cool sounds and ideas for every student.

Most importantly, you will learn to take these tools from the world of practice and apply them all to your world of music. At the end of each day the teachers will have a chance to learn from each other in special workshops designed to be an open forum for questions about playing, gear, tone etc.
