Last year, Guitar Player asked its readers to submit tracks spotlighting their heroic chops. These tracks were judged by the GP editors, who whittled down thousands of entries to ten finalists. The “big ten” will perform at a stellar two-hour showcase in the Rock Hall’s auditorium on June 10, as part of the three-day CMJ/Rock MusicFest (http://www.cmj.com/rockfest/). At the conclusion of the event, one player will be crowned as the 2005 Guitar Player Guitar Hero.
The event will be MC’d by Guitar Player Editor in Chief Michael Molenda, and will feature a panel of judges including Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, his son Trevor Lukather (currently touring guitarist with Lindsay Lohan), GP editor Jude Gold, and a special guest!
The winner of the event will receive a mammoth gear package and get one of their own songs included on CMJ’s New Music Monthly CD reaching tens of thousands of music business executives and tastemakers across North America.
Guitar Hero is sponsored by Gibson and Audio-Technica.
The brand new CMJ/Rock Hall Music Fest is where more than 30,000 music consumers, industry professionals, and artists will converge on Cleveland to celebrate today’s best new music. CMJ/Rock Hall is three days and nights of music, networking, featured speakers, a daytime Festival Village, and more than a dozen discussion sessions on the past, present, and future of music. CMJ/Rock Hall badgeholders can enjoy more than 100 live performances in Cleveland’s elite live-music venues and Festival Village stages. Guitar Player is proud to be a sponsor of the event, along with Ohio State Lottery, Miller Genuine Draft, KeyBank, Gibson, Jakprints.com, and Sonicbids.
