.strandberg* Guitars & Uppsala International Guitar Festival competition 2020

The winners can be found here!

The .strandberg* Guitar competition is a collaboration between the Uppsala International Guitar Festival and Strandberg Guitars and offers an online interaction opportunity to complement the festival that takes place in Uppsala, Sweden, in October each year.

In light of the 2020 pandemic, the format is changed slightly, but we are equally excited to announce our competition, which will be open not only to guitarists, but also to bassists!
We have a long standing relationship with the festival, which has featured performances and workshops by .strandberg* artists Jose Macario, Sarah Longfield, Jacky Bastek and Gustavo Assis-Brasil. For full details on the festival, visit http://www.uppsalagitarrfestival.se/
Contest is finished!

Description: Hello! I am an amateur guitarist/producer/songwriter from Bangalore, India. I post most of my creative work on @iamroodak on Instagram. I am also a part of a local classic rock band (called AKOG) and I play/record guitars for the band. We have a few releases, and we are putting out new music regularly. I have tried my best to make a progressive rock version of the song and tried my very best to write/mix/and re-arrange it in a way that reflects the kind of music I am passionate about. There is an entirely new middle section with a guitar solo/riff of my own to go along with the beautiful piece that has been provided. I have tried my best to portray a live performance by using the same takes (excluding one instance of rhythm guitar which was double-tracked) I've taken on video for the end product. Please note that I have faded out the ending section for aesthetics (you can hear the sustain from the camera audio after the track ends) I hope you like it! I loved being a part of this experience. I would have never taken the time to explore Polska music. May the best entry win. Cheers!
