Guitar Solo Comp Finalists Announced

Posted on October 13, 2017 by Matt Park There have been 17 comment(s)

Guitar Solo comp
A little behind schedule, but here are the nominees for the final of the best guitar solo competition...

We have listened to all the entries and have picked these finalists based on musical ability, originality and feel. We made a decision not to take tone into consideration as a way of levelling the playing field for players of varying gear (it shouldn't be about who has the most expensive and elaborate rig).

The judges decision is final but comments and votes (in the comments section below) will be taken into consideration. Here we go (in no particular order)...

UPDATE: THE WINNERS HAVE NOW BEEN ANNOUNCED!

Many thanks to everyone that entered and also to our kind sponsors Fender, Boss and Line6!

1st Prize

2nd Prize

3rd Prize

All the finalists...

Finalist 1

Finalist 2

Finalist 3

Finalist 4

Finalist 5

Finalist 6

Finalist 7

  • I was surprised to be a finalist! I defer to the others' technical skills and think that It might have been more interesting to have had the contributions judged separately by genre (per backing track). I particularly liked Adrian's track ...

  • Whoops - regarding my last line remark - I meant to say my vote goes to Stuart H Smith!

  • Adrian Withers all the way!!!!!!!!!

  • Thanks Johnny Oat. You have made my day. You are too modest. I'm really enjoying your track too. Melodic, creative and brings joy... and that's what it's all about. I can't pick a winner. Who knows what the judges will decide? I dont envy them. I wish you good luck Johnny.
