Tom Hess video samples and instructional DVD
I began recording film for a new instructional DVD right before the last tour began with Holyhell. There is a sample available on the tomhess.net site. More video samples will be added each month. The DVD project has been on hold because I’ve been in the recording studio every week lately. The samples are here: http://tomhess.net/video.php

European Tour dates
My next concert world tour will last from approximately late January through August (2006). There will probably be 3 breaks between each of the 4 legs of the tour. My record label (Magic Circle Music) and managers (Ragnar Prod.) are setting up the tour now. Currently, only the 6 concert dates in Germany have been officially released to the public.
New HESS Opus 2 review from Guitarnoise.com
This new section featuring my students is still under construction, but is eagerly anticipated by many! We hope to get this completed soon!
Thanks to all of you students that have emailed me your kind words about me as your teacher in the past and present. Thanks also for those of you that had written equally great things on various music/guitar forums! Many students have written to me in this last month about our great experiences together, all of those are posted here: http://tomhess.net/testimonials.php
