Festive Challenge Returns!

We are certainly getting loads of action at GMC lately, and it's not time to rest just yet, because GMC's Festive Challenge is back! Let's hear what our favourite rocker has to say about it, Mr Kristofer Dahl:

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.

3 Winners will have the options to choose:

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


Boss Super Chorus
Boss Super Chorus

New Gear: Boss CH-1 Super Chorus

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

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!
