Guitar World, Guitar Player and Bass Player have begun the search for 2020’s Guitarist of the Year. Categories include Electric Guitarist, Acoustic Guitarist, Bassist, Young Guitarist (age 17 and under) and a new contest, Guitar Teacher of the Year!
It's time to enter the biggest guitar-based talent search of the year!
We are dedicated to inspiring and lifting up musicians worldwide, and that extends to future guitarists and those who teach them. Which is why the Guitarist of the Year awards have partnered with NAMM Foundation to celebrate incredible guitar teachers and donate a portion of all proceeds towards funding music education.
