Thanks to Jack!


Jack Gardiner

What a great experience! Thoroughly enjoyed the past few days. Great to meet everyone and watch them play. Andre Nieri, Cameron Allen, Luca Mantovanelli, @mike to Morgan Robert Nember Reid, Damir Puh, Yiannis Papadopoulos II, you guys were ridiculously good. A big thanks to Levi Clay,Shaun Baxter, Martin Goulding, Tom Quayle, Owen Edwards and the organisers for the awesome opportunity and a special thanks to Manny Ruizfor putting me up alongside putting up with me and Jennifer Colas. I'm looking forward to getting home and playing my new PRS! Back to the practice room tomorrow I think...


Jack Gardiner I think it was:
Andre - 1st place - PRS Custom 24 and the Marshall stack

Cameron and myself as runners up - PRS S2.

Then the rest of the guys got the following I believe...

Yiannis - Paul Gilbert Guitar
Mike - Rotosound pedals
Luca - Ernie Ball JP signature
Morgan - Fret King
Damir - TC mini pedals


Cameron Allen
What an utterly amazing experience this weekend at Guitar Idol has been!!! I've had the time of my life hanging and jamming with some of the finest players and coolest people I know! Not only was it a weekend spent surrounded by amazing talent, it was also one spent in the company of genuinely kind, friendly people! It's a real honor to have been a part of this, and I am tremendously grateful to have had this opportunity! And on top of the wonderful music and fellowship, I'm extremely thrilled to have won a beautiful new PRS guitar as first runner up! Photos soon to come! For now, it's time to do some filming at the LickLibrary studio in London, then get some rest before heading to Paris tomorrow to continue the tour! \m/

Guitar Idol finals...What an experience! I had an absolutely amazing 4 days to wander around the city, rehearse, perform my song live and meet, hang (and drink!!!) with some of the most amazing guitar players in the world! It was a blast! Congrats to Andre Nieri for the win, and Mike Tillotson, Jack Gardiner,Cameron Allen, Yiannis Papadopoulos II, Morgan Robert Nember Reid, Luca Mantovanelli - you guys are all crazy good! I'm really looking forward to meet you all again!

Big thanks to the Guitar Idol team and judges for the opportunity and for the award. Experiences like this are my main inspiration to go forward as a player and as a person as well. Levi Clay, Tom Quayle - nice meeting you guys as well. You rock! \m/

At last, this post would not be complete without sending BIG, BIG, BIG greetings to all the people I met during those 4 days. You know who you are. And you rock too!

Morgan Reid

The whole Guitar Idol thing has been surreal, meeting some huge influences in my playing, some awesome musicians I look up to and I can hardly believe They consider me their peer. It was just ridiculous hanging out and talking shop, jamming.. Drinking
Anyways I did have some pretty brutal sound issues on the day but nevertheless I regret nothing and I'm just so happy to be here. Even more insane is that I'm going to the Lick Library studio tomorrow to record.... Well you'll just have to wait and see!
So keep your eyeballs peeled. Lol

Luca Mantovanelli

Congratulation to Andre Nieri for the 1st place and to all the amazing players i've been pleased to meet: Cameron Allen, Jack Gardiner (my smoke mate) Morgan Robert Nember Reid (the dancer), Michael Tillotson, Yiannis Papadopoulos II (THIS IS GUITAR IDOOOOL) and Damir Puh! You guys are AMAZING!

Thanks to the Guitar Idol team.. Tom Quayle, Levi Clay, Martin Goulding,Kim Waller, Stuart Bull and everyone at LickLibrary..
