Just weeks after announcing that JOE SATRIANI has extended the dates featuring DAN PATLANSKY as special guest on the European leg of his Shockwave Tour 2015, DAN PATLANSKY has announced that he will bring the experience home in a series of guitar workshops that he will host in South Africa in November 2015.


The legendary SATRIANI is renowned as one of the rock world’s top ‘shredders’. Shredding is a style of guitar playing which can broadly be described as speed playing, but coupled with techniques including legato, tapping and picking, the style is unique to every player and names like Steve Vai, Jimmy Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan are all synonymous with the style. PATLANSKY, whilst known as one of the most innovative modern blues rock guitarists emerging internationally, is hugely inspired by Satriani and is excited to bring his European tour experience as special guest to Joe Satriani, at 25 shows across 10 countries, back to local guitarists in South Africa. 

“Joe Satriani has been a massive inspiration in my life and to many others. He is the most forward-thinking and most inspirational guitar player of our time and I am extremely honoured and excited to be on the road with him.” - Dan Patlansky.

PATLANSKY will host two GUITAR WEEKENDS in November this year in the Western Cape and Free State. Each weekend has availability for 30 guitarists to spend three days with Dan and his band in a series of workshops and one-on-one lessons designed to improve guitar techniques for beginners, intermediate and experienced players alike.

The workshops cover:
Licks and Riffs
Chords & Harmony
Tone and Gear

A semi-private lesson is included where the student covers what he or she wants to cover. There are also many hours of jamming with other people that have the same passion for guitar playing.

The three-day experience is open to guitarists of any skill level, booking is on a first come – first served basis, and the fee for the three day workshop is inclusive of accommodation, meals and lesson manuals.

The Western Cape GUITAR WEEKEND will be hosted from 20 – 22 November at the Protea Hotel, Stellenbosch, whilst the Free Sate weekend is hosted at the Clarens Inn Backpackers, Clarens, from 27 – 29 November.

Detailed information about the workshops, booking forms and costs are available online at danpatlansky.com.

Regardless of where you’re at, the Dan Patlansky Guitar Weekend will advance your skills and deliver invaluable experience.
