Well if not sure if you've been: bad or good, naughty or nice...don't worry! I'm playing Santa and giving out the gifts at this years:

GMC Festive Challenge 2010


That's right, the FC is back! Grab your guitars because you only have 12 days to get those entries submitted. This should keep you busy during those boring holiday vacations. If you don't celebrate Christmas, don't worry, all are welcome.

We have a great competition for you this year - our very own Ben Higgins has tackled another 3 level lesson of various Christmas songs:




I am sure you will all agree that he has done an amazing job, and his arrangements of these popular Christmas songs are absolutely inspiring!

Thanks for your efforts Ben, you rocked it!

The challenge will be for you GMC'ers to, pick a level, learn the song, and post your attempt at playing it. Our panel of judges will pick a winner in each category based on playing mechanics and feel.

Prizes:

3 Winners will have the options to choose:

Private Lessons:
3 months of private lessons with an instructor of your choice.


OR

New Gear:

( A chorus pedal will give your tone a pro touch - use it for clean, solos or metal rhythm sounds )

Instructions:
1. Pick which level you will be entering
2. Study the lesson carefully
3. When you are ready, upload your take in the uploads thread

Rules:
1. Entries to the competition will be closed in the last minutes of December 27th, 2010 (EST, GMT-5). Even if the thread remains open, no entries will be considered after this time
2. Keep it real about what level you enter - we will disqualify anyone who picks too low a level in an effort to win!
3. Audio entries will be accepted however video entries are preferred
4. No substitution or cash alternatives for prizes will be offered

So get practicing and may the best guitarists win!

Perhaps maybe look at both just to get an idea of what feels comfortable and also what you think you can realistically achieve in time for the deadline of Dec 27th ? smile.gif
