Premier Guitar has teamed up with Broadjam.com in pursuit of the "premier guitarist." Do you have some serious guitar chops? Does your tone have what it takes?

Enter the Premier Guitarist Challenge for your chance to gain exposure for your talent, win cool gear from Epiphone, be featured by Premier Guitar and Broadjam, and have your selection judged by special artist judge, Marcus Henderson, lead guitarist from the Guitar Hero series.

It doesn't matter if you play acoustic or electric guitar. The Premier Guitarist Challenge will feature two separate categories for entrants: an electric category for electric guitarists and an acoustic category for acoustic guitarists. A grand-prize winner and runner-up will be selected from each category.

Judging will be based on a player's skill and originality. Whether you are submitting a song that is entirely original or you are taking "All Along the Watchtower" and making it "your own" with your unique use of tone and musical space (please, no note-for-note covers), this is a challenge you can't afford to miss out on. The Premier Guitarist Challenge is your chance to showcase your guitar prowess for the world to hear and enjoy and for you to win some sweet prizes along the way!
