Guitar Noize have teamed up with the guys at Jam Track Central to offer a truly awesome contest called ‘BLUE NOIZE’. Entrants have to perform a blues guitar solo over a backing track and upload to YouTube to win prizes from PRS, Suhr and Electro Harmonix, to name a few!
“GuitarNoize.com, in association with PRS Guitars, jamtrackcentral.com, Suhr, Electro-Harmonix, Jim Dunlop and Rotosound Music Strings presents the latest YouTube solo contest and this time it’s a little blue. The last Guitar Noize solo contest was called ‘Anti-Shred’ to differentiate from all the shred competitions around, this time it is your chance to show us your blues chops with a fantastic professional backing track courtesy of jamtrackcentral.com.
The Blue Noize contest has a panel of distinguished guitar judges – Suhr Artists Andy Wood, Rick Graham and Tom Quayle and GuitarNoize.com’s Jon Bloomer and Paul Davies. Jon and Paul will whittle down the entries to a top 20 before handing them over to Andy, Rick and Tom to make a final decision.”
