You could be Gui­tar Tech­niques’s Gui­tarist of the Year!

Be part of GT’s new com­pe­ti­tion to find the next gui­tar god.

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

We want to find the best new gui­tar tal­ent for this year’s Gui­tarist Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion. If you’re read­ing this you’re al­ready one step closer to lift­ing the tro­phy and bag­ging with some prize booty.

Pre­vi­ous win­ners in­clude Dave Kilmin­ster, Guthrie Go­van and James Bell (Gui­tarist YouTube chan­nel’s most watched video), so this could be your spring­board to sim­i­lar great­ness! Here’s Guthrie:

“Win­ning GOTY laid an im­por­tant foun­da­tion with­out which my ca­reer might well have taken a rather dif­fer­ent turn. And my favourite part of all? Dis­cov­er­ing that the panel of judges at the fi­nals would fea­ture both fin­ger­style jazz mon­ster Martin Tay­lor and Fri­day Rock Show host Tommy Vance: I re­mem­ber deem­ing that to be a pleas­ingly eclec­tic panel.”

We’ve got great judges this year, too: Paul Gil­bert, Joe Sa­tri­ani and Mark Tre­moni will be help­ing to weed out the best en­tries. Fi­nals take place at our UK Gui­tar Show on 29 and 30 Septem­ber 2018.

How to get in­volved? Up­load a video of your play­ing to YouTube and send us the link. Make a video that shows why you de­serve to win and our ex­perts will pick the best and broad­cast our favourites to our mil­lion-plus au­di­ence. Email a to gui­taristoftheyear@fu­ Sub­ject line your email as ‘Gui­tarist’ ‘Young Gui­tarist’ or ‘Acous­tic Gui­tarist’ to let us know which cat­e­gory you’re en­ter­ing.

We’ll email you back if we want to fea­ture your video on GT’s Face­book page. Our pick of the best will be in­vited to play at the fi­nal in Septem­ber, live in Lon­don at the UK Gui­tar Show, where our win­ners will be crowned.

The com­pe­ti­tion is now of­fi­cially

open so get prac­tis­ing, shoot­ing and up­load­ing to­day! Good luck!
