I had a great time at the "Best In Shred" competition at Glendale Arizona's Sam Ash Music,this past Wednesday. Congratulations to Adam Gonzales and Duane Woods,the evenings two winners. They will square off against next weeks two winners and that winner will go on to the regional showdown. Most surprising,the two winners not only played hard tail guitars,they both played Gibson SGs! Not a tremolo bar to be found in this winners circle. There was some really good playing from the other contestants as well. Arizona residents,don't forget to come down and see round two on October 27th. I'll see you there!
