Songbirds Guitar Museum announced Tuesday a contest where one lucky young person will have the vintage guitar experience of a lifetime. Songbirds Guitar Museum will give away one Player Experience to a qualified guitar player, 18 years of age or younger, with blues great Joe Bonamassa. Songbirds’ Player Experience gives a player the opportunity to play legendary vintage guitars and amplifiers from the Songbird’s Collection, only this time with the added benefit of playing alongside Joe the morning of Aug. 7 at Songbirds Guitar Museum located in Chattanooga.
Later that day, the winner will record a track in a professional recording studio. Finally that evening, the winner will have the opportunity to play live on stage with artist Paul Childers as he honors blues guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughn at the Songbirds South Stage. Hotel accommodations will be provided for the winner and guardian.
“Every once and a while you are given an opportunity to participate in something that could change the trajectory of someone’s musical life,” said Mr. Bonamassa. “I am honored to participate in this experience that was generously donated by The Songbirds Guitar Museum. To spend a day amongst the greatest guitar collection in the world and play music will be something anyone will remember for the rest of their lives.”
To enter, contestants will submit a 5-minute audition video demonstrating their ability to play guitar, as well as including a short explanation of why they should be selected to win. The deadline to submit video auditions is July 17 at noon. Entries may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded to YouTube with an email sharing the link sent to this email address. The winner will be announced live on Facebook July 24 at noon.
