Premier Guitarist Challenge Deadline Extended to October 3

Guitarists take note: you have an extra week to submit your entries!

Mount Vernon, IA (September 30, 2009) -- In response to the great submissions we've been getting so far, Premier Guitar and Broadjam have extended the deadline of the Premier Guitarist challenge to October 3. If you haven't recorded your submission yet, there's still time!

The Premier Guitarist challenge allows entrants to submit pieces of their guitar playing in acoustic or electric categories. Marcus Henderson, lead guitarist for the Guitar Hero video game series, will serve as the artist judge for the contest.

Judging will be based on a player's skill and originality. Submissions are allowed to be entirely original or covers which are made original through the entrant’s own unique tone and use of musical space.

The grand prize winners and runner ups in each category will receive an Epiphone Guitar; exposure with Premier Guitar and Broadjam; a subscription to Premier Guitar; and a Primo MoB membership to Broadjam. The entrance fee for the contest is $25 per song submitted.
