And you thought the Catskills were just for family foxtrot lessons and summer flings with dance instructors. This December, Testament's Alex Skolnick and Megadeth's Chris Broderick—two of the most talented and knowledgeable fretmen on the planet—are hosting the Winter Guitar Retreat, a week-long (December 26-30) intensive guitar study at the Full Moon Resort, in Big Indian, New York, in the heart of the Catskill Forest Preserve.
Over the course of five days, Chris and Alex will offer a curriculum that includes classes on a vast array of topics including improvisation, theory, counterpoint, gear pointers, classical techniques, ear training, harmony, rhythm guitar (jazz and metal), tapping, and even some slap 'n' pop.
The all-inclusive registration fee includes lodging as well as access to all workshops, seminars, gourmet meals, performances, and camp activities. All you need to do is get there. Prices start at $999. For a complete fee schedule and much more information, visit the Winter Guitar Retreat's official web site.
