What is Guitarmageddon?

Many of you already know that the national store, Guitar Center has a contest every year called GuitarMageddon.  Each store lets local guitar players enter to perform a solo before a panel of three judges.  The judges rate the performers on seven different areas of skill including: musical composition, originality, technique, dynamics, continuity, stage presence and audience response.  Yes, there is an audience there to watch the brave get shot down and the lucky ones go on to the next level. It's seriously nerve wracking and considered to be pretty brutal among guitar players! 

I don't remember what they were doing before 2001 but in that year, the contest was in March and the solos were just that, solos.  No backup music, the performer had to play for exactly three minutes.  In 2001 they (Guitar Center) added tracks by way of a CD that they had produced to back up the contestants.  There were 12 tracks, each recorded by great musicians and the songs ranged from about 3 minutes to over 5. 

The two winners selected each week in each of the (now) 100 Guitar Center stores go on to compete with each other in the following month.  Only one winner will go on to compete against the regional store winners and then the regional winners to on to the semi-finals who then go on to the finals.  Eventually, only one can win and there is a pretty good prize at the end.

The following links will tell you how Chodosh Guitar students did at Guitarmageddon.  So far, we've had two enter one year and six enter the next.  Out of that we've had three winners!
