Well, if you don't aim high, don't aspire to succeed, don't strive for your art, you will never make headway and never move forward.

Michael does these things and one day will make his dreams come true.

I do hope I get to see that day.

Too bad the funds didn't get raised. Hope there is some other solution to save this event! Is there?

Michael,

Thank you for giving it your best shot!
Times are tough everywhere now, and I'm sure we have all heard
how the arts are usually the first to suffer with funding.

It's not a fretless thing, I would like to think...

So, it's heads up and straight ahead with making music!

What is up with the event? It looks like a truly epic line up compared to the other fretless show. Come on no money for Ogur Donahue Evett and Fuze what is this world coming too. I wish I was rich with money because this would be set in stone

2012 Fretless Guitar Summit has been Cancelled

Hello, I am disappointed to say the 2012 Fretless Guitar Summit has been cancelled due to lack of interest & funding. We held out as long as we could, but no real funding was coming in for the event. This is truly sad considering the caliber of artists who had agreed to perform. We are not sure how to proceed other than canceling this years event. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but it is truly our only choice.
Peace & best of luck in your future sonic endeavors.

One day it might just happen....

We've gotta find one of those philanthropists. (I bet there's more of them than fretless guitarists)
