I took part in the Battle of the Blues at the Guitar Center in downtown Brooklyn. It was a really good time and there were some pretty hot players. It was the first round of the competition and 2 winners would go on to the in-store finals on June 5th. The format is pretty simple: You choose a backing track from the website and then perform the song in front of the judges at the store. I came in 2nd so I am going to the finals! It was a very well run competition, the emcee (store manager) was a really funny guy and everyone who attended and watched got a card for 15% off there next 5 purchases and a t-shirt. If interested, I recommend going to the site and checking out when the next competitions are!
