If you want to play guitar or already do and need to work on your craft: heads up. GuitarMasterClass.net (GMC) is partnering with BBG! to give away several online guitar lesson packages.
But before we get to the contest, a little background on GMC. Here's a little Q&A with site founder Kristofer Dahl.
Bring Back Glam!: When did the site open?
Dahl: GuitarMasterClass,was founded March 12, 2006 by me. I'm a professional guitarist and instructor from Stockholm, Sweden.
BBG!: What was the inspiration for the site?
Dahl: The inspiration came from my idea to explore the possibilities of getting my licks heard and played on the Internet. The music scene for guitar stuff was non existent in Stockholm/Sweden. I discovered the possibilities of a site like this after uploading and sharing my music and videos on the web. The response I got from the viewers led me to developing the GMC instructional website and music community.
BBG!: How many active users do you have
Dahl: We have several thousands of active users on the site. The most important part of GMC experience is in fact the community and interaction between the instructors and fellow students.
BBG!: Can anyone teach, or what is the process to become a teacher?
Dahl: As the GMC was growing, the requirements were getting higher too! Today a GMC instructor needs to be able to produce high quality instructional video guitar lessons, to be an awesome/versatile guitarist and most important - be able to communicate with and help students on their guitar learning journey.
Now that you know the history of GMC, it's time for the fun part! If you'd like to learn how to play guitar but don't have cash for private lessons, listen up. I'm giving away 15 six-month full access GMC memberships (each valued $150.) That's a big prize, right? All you need to do to win is send me an email - from an account you actually check- with your full legal name. Put "GMC giveaway" in the subject line and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 11:59pm EST. If you don't put "GMC giveaway" in the subject line, your entry will be deleted. I will randomly select the winners via lottery. Good luck.
