Why Have A Contest?
I thought a contest would be a cool way to attract new people to GuitarTipsWeekly. There are already a lot of great people getting the weekly lessons, but the more, the merrier! So enter yourself, and then tell your friends and get them to enter as well!
What Do I Win?
The prize is a $50 gift certificate to Musician's Friend. Just as their name implies, they've got an incredible selection of pretty much everything a musician might want. Tons and tons of cool guitar stuff, yours for the winning.
Note: If you live in a part of the world where Musician's Friend doesn't deliver, I will contact you before arranging the prize, and we'll work something out. So wherever you are in the world - feel free to enter!
How Do I Enter?
Entering is easy - all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this page, and tell me why you enjoy playing guitar. It doesn't have to be an epic long story (though it could be, I guess if you want!), but please make it at least a sentence! Make sure you use a real email address, because that's the one that I will use to contact you if you're the winner! Don't worry - nobody else can see your email address, only me. By entering, you're not signing up for anything, and you won't receive any emails (unless you win of course!) - all you're doing is leaving a comment on this page.
NOTE: If you want to sign up for the weekly guitar tips, you'll need to do that separately, using the form at the top right corner of this page.
How Is The Winner Chosen?
The winner will be picked randomly from the entire list of comments. So if I end up with say 71 comments/entries, then I will choose a random number between 1 and 71 using a cool software program I have. It's pretty simple and straightforward!
What is the DEADLINE?
The contest officially ends on April 30th - sometime on May 1 I will choose the winner from the comments below. Even if there are only 3 comments! So get your name in the hat while you're here on the page!
UPDATE: I've been reading all your comments as they come in - every one! - and thoroughly enjoying them. It's truly inspirational to see so many people's love of the guitar shining through! Keep 'em coming!
