Best Guitar Solo Video Wins A Guitar

Enter the Taylor Guitar Solo Showdown   15-Oct-10

Here's what Taylor has to say...
This is where all that woodshedding pays off. We're inviting players to submit a video of their best guitar solo for a chance to win a Taylor acoustic or electric guitar. Here's how it works: Upload a short video clip (up to 30 seconds) of you playing a guitar solo on a Taylor acoustic or electric guitar.
The video above is of longtime Taylor staffer Terry Myers ripping through a solo from Deep Purple's "Highway Star" on one of their Fall LTDs, an all-mahogany SolidBody Classic with vintage alnico humbuckers.
There are four categories:
  • 1. Best acoustic solo, original material
  • 2. Best electric solo, original material
  • 3. Best acoustic solo, cover material
  • 4. Best electric solo, cover material
A Grand Prize winner will be chosen in each category by a vote of the Taylor Guitars Facebook community, so be sure to spread the word to get your friends to vote for you. The two acoustic solo winners each will receive a brand new Taylor 314ce, and the two electric solo winners each will receive a Taylor SolidBody Classic. Winners will also receive a Taylor prize pack, as will the runner-up in each category.
  • All video submissions must be no more than 30 seconds in duration
  • All solos must be performed on a Taylor acoustic or electric guitar
  • Solos must be unaccompanied by other instruments, vocals or pre-recorded backing tracks

  • Members of the Taylor Facebook community are limited to one (1) vote per solo per day
