THE WINNER OF THE Per Nilsson / Guitar Messenger SOLO CONTEST IS ANNOUNCED!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: mr Leonardo Guzman!
Apparantly, there's more to the Republic of Colombia than just great coffee. During jury deliberations, Jeff Loomis had this to say about our winner: "this guy just killed it in terms of phrasing, feel and technical approach" - I couldn't agree more.
Dude your solo puts the biggest smile on my face - I am in such awe of your skills. Amazing work, and I can't wait to hear more of your playing!
Enjoy your new guitar from Ibanez Guitars, pedal/amp from Randall Amplifiers, cabinet simulation software from Recabinet, pickups from Seymour Duncan and tons of software from Toontrack - very well deserved indeed!
