QUICK! This week is the last chance for guitarists to apply to Guitar Player’s 2009 Guitar Superstar Competition. Dammit I really wanted to enter this but time got away from me and I haven’t had a chance. GRR!!!
Ten finalists will be chosen by Guitar Player’s editors to face off at the event in September. Guitar Player editor Michael Molenda (one of my personal journalistic heroes) tweeted the other day that he was personally reviewing the applications.
This is the fourth year in a row Guitar Player has found its heroes from the Sonicbids community. Last year, Vicki Genfan was one of the 10 Sonicbids artists Guitar Player selected. She went on to win the competition judged by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, the Cars’ Elliott Easton, George Lynch and Brendan Small from Metalocalypse (Here was the story in the Wall Street Journal).
