.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: Hey! I'm Nyxy, an 18 year old guitarist and singer/songwriter from Los Angeles. For my entry, “Norbotten Nights”, I wanted to create a modern 7-string rendition of the polska which captures the mysticism and contrasts of the dramatic nature in Norrbotten. I stayed true to the original 3/4 time signature, but reharmonized the melody using several new chord progressions. Hope you enjoy my interpretation!
