Want to win over thousands of pounds worth of prizes, be featured in all the guitar mags, play in front of thousands of fans at The London International Music Show, get to do masterclasses at The Guitar Institute - and open up on stage for a genuinely LEGENDARY guitar virtuoso? A record deal is also in the pipeline for the winner!

This is the first major international online guitarist talent search and PRS, Peavey, Roland, Alloutguitar.com, Licklibrary.com, MB Media, Guitar Buyer, Rockschool and The Guitar Institute are sponsoring this - be good to see someone from here getting through!

You can enter with your own composition - or pick from over a dozen backing tracks in loads of styles to solo and riff over - either Youtube or MP3 format. You then upload this to the site and it will be voted by you lot!

The finalists will be decided upon by a combination of online points accrued and a special panel of professional guitar industry figures who will judge the online contestants.

The 10 with the highest votes/selected by the panel of professional judges will be invited to play on the main stage in June at The London International Music Show and will play their entries in front of thousands and a panel of top industry pro's.
