FJ-Summit_Logo-Red_zpsrmu6l6ni.PNGWhen the publisher of the venerable Fretboard Journal invited Peghead Nation to create a program of hands-on guitar instruction for the first-ever Fretboard Summit last year, we were thrilled to join their amazing lineup of guitar makers and performers. And it was a great time, as you can tell from our report about the event last November and from the video of the all-star jam on the closing night, below.

So, we can't wait to do it all again this fall! The second annual Fretboard Summit will take place October 14 - 16 at the Rancho Bernado Inn in San Diego. Guitar lovers will take over the resort, and the grounds will be converted to demonstration and lesson rooms, performance and interview stages, jam spots, pop-up museums, and much more. 

The Fretboard Summit just announced their first round of speakers and performers, with many more to come. Performers will include Laurence Juber, David Crosby, Bob Minner, Matt Munisteri, Courtney Hartman, Anthony Wilson, and Dori Freeman. Luthiers and speakers include TJ Thompson, Dick Boak of Martin Guitars, Tim Luranc and Andy Powers of Taylor Guitars, Bill Collings, Rick Turner, Dana Bourgeois, luthier Howard Klepper, and many others.

Peghead Nation with be on hand with in-depth, interactive guitar workshops throughout the weekend, so you can pick up new fingerstyle, flatpicking, and composing skills in the midst of all of this guitar-related fun. We hope to see you there!
