Steve Vai, Jeff Beck: to slug it out for a grammy prize.

Fender would like to congratulate Jeff Beck for his recent Grammy nominated. Beck’s rendition of the Beatles’ classic “A Day in the Life” was selected to compete for a Grammy in the best rock instrumental performance category.

“I am thrilled to have been nominated for a Grammy for ‘A Day in the Life’, Best Rock Instrumental Performance,” said Beck. “It’s good to know my music is appreciated. This Rocks!”

Beck is competing for the award alongside Brad Paisley (”Playing with Fire”), Brian Setzer Orchestra (”Mr. Surfer Goes Jazzin’”), Steve Vai (”Now we Run”) and Booker T. Jones (”Warped Sister”). The winner will be announced on Jan. 31.
