Beginner rock guitar lessons for n00bs and rusty rockers
If you're lucky, guitar contests can give you a chance to win all sorts of cool guitar gear. Sometimes there are even sweepstakes to win VIP passes to concerts and private sessions with famous musicians.
Heck, I've always had a saying - "If it's free, it's for me!" If I can stick my name in a hat to win cool stuff and it's not gonna cost me anything but a little time, I'm all for it. I've been able to speed up the process, too.
No one likes to fill out a bunch of online forms, so you can use autofill add-ins for Internet Explorer and Firefox to do the heavy lifting for you. You fill in the blanks once, and then when a form shows up on a web page, you just click a button and you're done.
You can add the Google Toolbar for both IE and Firefox. Just do a quick Google search in your chosen internet browser and download the toolbar to your machine.
Here are a number of great websites that host all sorts of guitar contests, musical gear and recording software contests and concert sweepstakes. Some of them offer monthly giveaways, while others are always updating their contests with new stuff. I'll add more as I find them - be sure to bookmark this page so you can find it easily...
Check 'em out, and good luck!
Those are just a few places you can enter contests to win guitars, amps, gear and other merchandise, updated pretty regularly. Let's face it, I can't be everywhere to scout out all the music related contests on the World Wide Web. I could use your help! How about sharing the contests you find?
Yeah, I know, you might cut your chances to win down a bit, but think of all the good karma you're earning! Maybe someone will read about a contest here, win something, come back to post about it - and thank you for helping them out!
If you end up winning something, we'd all like to hear about it! Post it back here, or give me a shout out - Thanks!
Is someone giving away a trip to a Rock camp, a free song, guitar strings or some other piece of gear? Why don't you give the rest of us a heads-up?
