IF YOU’RE IN THE NASHVILLE AREA AND HAVE
always wanted to check out what goes on at a NAMM convention,
this summer’s show is opening its doors to the public on
July 23, 2011. On that day, MPN is partnering with NAMM to
sponsor “Wanna Play Music Day” at the usually “trade-only”
gearfest. In addition to being allowed
to walk the aisles like a GP editor and
audition all the hot, new guitar products,
you’ll also get to attend “Wanna
Play Music Day” events such as special
concerts, player clinics, roundtables,
Summer NAMM welcomes Guitar
Player’s Guitar Superstar 2011 for the
first time on July 23, as well. Hosted
by guitar legend Larry Carlton, the
seventh annual guitar competition pits
five finalists in a thrill-or-crumble battle in front of celebrity judges such as GP columnist and L.A. session great
Carl Verheyen, extreme guitar iconoclast Reeves Gabrels, and All-Star Guitar Night founder Muriel Anderson.
Deadline for entries is June 15, 2011, so if you’ve missed all the Twitter, Facebook, Web, and print promotions,
you might still have a day or so to get your entry in front of the Guitar Player staff. Click to truefire.com/gpgs2011
for details. And, of course, keep watching guitarplayer.com for Summer NAMM and Guitar Superstar updates.
