So today while browsing ultimate-guitar.com, reading up on the latest music news, I came across a post about a competition being ran by ultimate-guitar and American rock band Halestorm. Being a Halestorm fan, I decided to check it out and see what the deal was.
I read through the details, to find that Halestorm were challenging fans to write a guitar solo for one of their latest songs 'Mayhem.' In reward for writing and performing the best solo, the winner would receive an Lzzy Hale Signature Gibson Explorer, as well as other cool stuff such as and autographed 'Into The Wild' LP and other merch! This peaked my interest, and I decided to go ahead and download the solo-less backing track, and give it a shot!
A few hours later, I'd written and recorded my solo, and uploaded it to YouTube! You can check it out below. The winners should be announced on the 21/08/15. Fingers crossed!
