  • Guitar Center Replaces Their Annual Competition?

    I used to look forward to the King of Blues every year. I lose with dignity each year, and I even made it to the store finals last year! Now it's replaced with Blues Masters, which seems like some damn social networking contest. Boo and hiss, Guitar Center.

    yea, I saw that too!

     

    they JUST built a GC here about 5 months ago, so I've never been close enough to one to be in that competition. And it was really the only thing I was looking forward to by having a GC here.

      what's a social networking contest?

    The problem with this format is that most of the entries are going to be auto-tuned, auto-timed, and the guys who win will be kids sweep picking the living **************** out of pentatonic scales with a little less gain than usual.

      Making it an online social networking thing guarantees that a good blues player will never win. Some popular kid with a ton of friends in his college will win. Either that or a hot girl who is decent.

      I used to enjoy watching some good players jam out, and these are almost always the type of guys who won't go through the trouble to shoot a video, upload to youtube, and then market themselves to facebook friends. Ultra lame.
