We constantly strive to include the Guitar Player community in as many of our content plans as possible, and we also look for ways to help our readers promote their music. After all, GP is committed to celebrating the glory of the guitar in every manner we can imagine.
The reader content and music-promotion goals happily joined together when we recently asked (via Facebook) for y'all to send us five-to-seven second clips of your original tracks for intro and outro music on our summer NAMM video bumpers. The idea was to offer snippets of your fab music to introduce the NAMM demos, and then, hopefully, guide the community to your online sites to learn more if people liked what they heard.
We had submissions from all over the world, and, although the summer NAMM videos are available on web article pages at guitarplayer.com and on our YouTube channel, we wanted to combine all the current videos right here to thank the artists who shared their tracks. More videos will be added as future gear videos and reader tracks are uploaded.
There is some great guitar playing here, so we encourage the community to find out more about the artists below. (Hey, a five-second snippet is hardly enough time to really enjoy someone's artistry.) And if YOU want YOUR music to grace our gear videos, just send an original track (or a few tracks) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always up for showcasing your wonderful guitar playing to the greater GP community and beyond!
