Paul Gilbert’s Great Guitar Escape 2022




Next week, award-winning master guitarist, internationally-renowned shred guitar icon, co-founder of bands Racer X and Mr. Big, and ArtistWorks rock guitar instructor, Paul Gilbert, will be hosting his sixth ever Great Guitar Escape event, a 4-day immersive guitar experience at the Kellogg West Conference Center in Pomona, CA.


Held from July 28 through August 1, 2022, the Great Guitar Escape is an event for guitar players of all ages and levels, as well as music lovers, guitar enthusiasts, and more. Joining Paul at the Escape will be fellow ArtistWorks instructor, blues rock guitar virtuoso, Jared James Nichols, as well as veteran TrueFire and JamPlay teachers Andy Timmons, Gretchen Menn, Greg Koch, Mike Keneally, and more.

“Some of my closest friends and favorite all-time players will be with us, including Great Guitar Escape veterans Andy Timmons, George Lynch, and Greg Howe,” explains Paul. “We’ll also be joined by some players that I’ve been following for a while. Jared James Nichols is really fiery, taking the style that was born with Hendrix and continued into the 70s, classic high-energy blues rock guitar playing. It’s so nice to see a younger guy really getting a grip on that sound and putting his own thing into it as well.”


As an attendee of the Great Guitar Escape 2022, you’ll receive:


  • A once-in-a-lifetime mentor session (one-on-one) with one of our instructors
  • Jamming with the one and only Paul Gilbert himself!
  • A professional film crew to record your jam with Paul (extra charges may apply)
  • Camper jamming until the wee hours — rock out until dawn!
  • Intimate breakout sessions with Andy Timmons, Greg Howe, George Lynch, Greg Koch, Mike Kenneally, Gretchen Menn, Doug Doppler, and Stephanie Bradley- organized by level and your interest!
  • A special signing session and photos with Paul and the other artists
  • Deluxe accommodations
  • Great food and great company – make lasting memories every day!


“Whether you are a master player, a beginner, or just an enthusiastic fan, our four-day programs offer activities and workshops for you,” said Paul. “Our environment is non-competitive and is strictly about immersing oneself in the joys of guitar playing, music, and our lovely surroundings!”
