Kiesel Guitars have just launched a brand-new guitar solo contest for 2019! As with most solo contests, they’ve provided a backing track for you to jam over, with plenty of sick prizes to win if you come in first, second, or third place. Check out the official rules below:
1. Download the Official Backing Track here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/soq0dk5elyt…
2. Record a video submission of your solo and upload it to YouTube with the tag #kieselsolocontest2019. (Entries uploaded to Instagram and Facebook in addition to YouTube will be eligible to win Kiesel Merch and Accessories. We will be randomly selecting one entry from Instagram or Facebook every week that the contest is open to win Kiesel Merch and Accessories.)
3. There is only to be one entry per person.
4. We(the guys at Kiesel Guitars) will narrow it down to the top 30 entries, the Solo Contest Facebook Group will vote on the top 5 Entries (so be sure to join the group to make sure you get to vote for the top 5), and then the panel of judges(Jeff Kiesel along with a few guest artists) will pick the winner.
5. DO NOT tag Jeff Kiesel, any of the guest artists, or any Kiesel Employees, the panel of judges will see your submission, I promise.
6. Submissions are to be entered in by September 30th, 2019.
7. Have Fun!
And as far as prizes go, here’s what they’ve got to offer!
