Earlier this year Vero partnered with multi-platinum singer songwriter KT Tunstall to launch the first Vero Great Guitar Contest.
Vero is pleased to announce that the Vero Great Guitar Contest is roaring back with a new edition presented in collaboration with our friends All Guitar Network and Norman's Rare Guitars with a pretty special prize package to reckon with.
The lucky winner of the GRAND PRIZE will receive a Taylor Builder's Edition 717 guitar - signed by celebrity visitors to Norman’s Rare Guitars - as well as an expenses paid trip to California to record an interview for All Guitar Network and Vero, tours of Norman’s legendary store and the Taylor factory. In addition, FOUR Runners Up will each receive a Taylor Academy Series guitar.
For the next four weeks, be sure to check in for coaching tips from our expert judges - renowned session guitarist Tim Pierce (who played with Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus), “Guitar Of The Day” host Michael Lemmo of Norman's Rare Guitars and Tim Godwin, head of artist relations at Taylor Guitars.
HOW TO ENTER:
To enter round 2 of Vero's Great Guitar Contest, here’s what you need to do:
1. Download Vero for free from the App Store or Google Play.
2. Do a Video post on Vero introducing yourself and then perform your most impressive guitar lick!
Your video must be 60 seconds or less. You can play electric or acoustic, improvize a solo or play an original song. Use of loop pedals and/or an additional backup musician (like a rhythm guitarist or drummer) are optional and ok - just be sure to perform your own music LIVE. (We all love Hendrix, but no cover versions are allowed!)
3. Be sure to include the hashtag #AllGuitarVeroContest with your post.
The contest will also benefit The Midnight Mission - a human services organization in downtown Los Angeles which provides support to homeless people in Southern California with an emphasis on developing self-sufficiency.
Vero's Great Guitar Contest Round 2 launches today and runs for four weeks, from June 17th to July 17th 2019!
Winners will be announced on the official @Vero profile during the week of July 22nd so make sure you follow Vero for updates.
