Annual Weissenborn Steel Guitar Workshop 2020

4th to 6th September 2020 in Rugheim (Germany)


Every year German guitar luthier Michael Götz organises the Weissenborn Steel Guitar Workshop in Rügheim (Germany). During this long week-end slide guitar players of all levels come from different countries to learn, jam and make new friends with other guitarists.

Fernando Perez will be there welcoming, meeting and teaching everyone. 
He will personally teach separate group lessons for all levels, beginners, intermediate and advance guitar players.
The lessons will cover different styles ranging from Blues, Country, Bluegrass, Hawaiian, etc.

English and German is spoken in class, but for those who are not fluent in these there is always translation available.
Informal Jam sessions will happen everyday - anytime!
Saturday night is teachers concert night, all students have free entry.

You can bring your own steel guitar but if you can’t due to travel-flight restrictions, luthier Michael Götz will have one available for you to use during the workshop at no extra cost.
