PS: Don’t be intimidated! If you are feeling intimidated or afraid to attend this event, please don’t be afraid.

Let me explain why:

Although there are many truly amazing guitar players & other musicians who come to this event every year, there are also many other players who are not advanced guitar players yet.

They were afraid too the first time they attended HESSFEST, but once they got here, they immediately felt relaxed, comfortable and realize that everyone is here to help you… NOT to compete with you, not to judge you and not to try to be ‘better’ than you.

I hear new people say what they fear most is being 'the worst musician in the room' or 'too old' or 'too young' or 'too stupid' or 'into the wrong style' or 'afraid of this' or 'afraid of that'. Here’s my advice to you if you feel this way:


Let’s deal with all the irrational fears that people in the past have had about coming to this event so that we can eliminate them once and for all... right here and right now.

List of irrational fears:

  • Fear of being the worst guitar player in the room.
  • Fear of not being ready for an event like this.
  • Fear of not being 'qualified' to be here
  • Fear of other people hearing you play poorly.
  • Fear of people at the event judging you as a musician (or as a person).
  • Fear of me (Tom Hess) thinking you are not as good of a musician as you want me to think you are.

 .... the list is endless.

If you feel this way now or in the future, STOP it!

NOBODY cares who the best or worst player in the room is.

NOBODY is going to judge you one way or the other.

NOBODY cares how well you play guitar when you come to the event.

... We ONLY care about one thing and one thing only… MAKING YOU A MASSIVELY BETTER GUITAR PLAYER than you are right now! This is the only thing we focus on… (plus we focus on having a LOT of fun in the process!)

We are with you, we support you and we all understand what I feels like to be afraid sometimes or insecure about our playing. You will definitely not be alone in this.

So don’t let fear get in your way.

This event WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE in more ways than you can probably imagine right now reading this!

PPS: We KNOW your story! When you are at home, nobody else really is like you. Nobody else around your home city thinks and feels like you do. You are special. You are the only one that you know who is as passionate about music as you are...

You often feel isolated where you live... you feel like an island... you feel that others (even other musicians) around you simply cannot understand you, relate to you or think and feel like you do.

You often ask yourself, "am I the only person in this world who thinks, feels and believes the way I do?" It's a lonely feeling... I know... I've felt this in the past too for many years, just as you do now.

Right now you know that you WANT to come to this event, but are not sure if you have the courage to actually do it.

It can be a little scary to travel around the world to a place you've never been to - surrounded by people you've never actually met.

Next, you arrive at the hotel and you feel strange, awkward and nervous... you don't know what to expect, what to say, what to do or how to act... maybe you feel afraid and wonder if you made the right decision to really come to this event...

Then the events begin, all of your negative feelings and thoughts begin to melt away.

You realize quickly that everyone else here is JUST LIKE YOU!

You realize that EVERYONE in the room is ultra special.

They are NOTHING like the musicians/people you know back in your city.

You realize that these events are a collection of all the 'people like you' in the world who all traveled to the same place, at the same time, to do the same things... and it feels AMAZING... almost 'unreal'.

And then the best part comes... you begin to realize that everyone else feels the same way about YOU as you feel towards them!!!

You realize that other special people value you.

They feel good simply talking to you... they want to be around you.

They want to spend time with you… why?

Because they see that you understand them, can relate to them, are as passionate about music as they are… and that is just as rare in their hometown as it is in yours.

You leave the event knowing you have just spent the last several days with the people you've wanted to surround yourself with your whole life but could never find them in your hometown... and you know in your mind, your heart and in your bones that they feel exactly the same way about YOU!!!!!

Trust me... if you don't think you are 'special', it doesn't matter... Why? Because everyone else here at these events DOES think (and know) that you are special to them... and you'll feel that in a very big way... because it's REAL.

When we say this is life changing... it truly is, on so many levels.

PPPS: This Event SELLS OUT Every Year, and the chance of this event selling out again this year is 100%.

PPPPS: Remember, you also get our Ironclad 100% Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee! You will be very happy you attended – guaranteed! If you are not 100% satisfied by the end of the first day of the event… I’ll gladly refund 100% of your tuition! (Please note that refunds can only be given under this condition).
