Jazz/Fusion legend Lee Ritenour (who bought his Ramirez at GSI) stopped by the showroom this week to tell us about this year’s 6 String Theory Competition, which features prizes including a full-ride Berklee scholarship, instruments, and more for guitarists as well as rhythm section players. Go to 6 String Theory for more information, but watch the video to learn about the competition, prizes and the new extended deadline for entry.
There are a few categories for guitar entries, but the winner of the classical/flamenco category gets some great prizes even before going to compete for the overall guitar prize. Prizes for the classical/flamenco category include $2,500 cash, $500 towards travel to Big Fork Montana the last week in August for the Crown Of The Continent Guitar Festival and all fees and food and lodging paid at the festival.
In fact, they are giving away a total of 36 scholarships to the National Guitar Workshop in Montana to the 36 semi-finalists, which not only makes being a semi-finalist pretty cool, but should make the National Guitar Workshop an amazing place to be this year. The finals for the guitar competition will be held at the festival. Not too shabby, so get your entries in by the new, extended, May 10 deadline (which Lee announces in our video).
