It's So Easy: Enter the Ultimate Guitar Showdown competition - judged by Slash

Fancy yourself as a guitar hero in the making? There's still time to enter Slash's Ultimate Guitar Showdown, an online competition in search of the ultimate guitar solo.

Music Nation's competition will be judged by the Guns N' Roses legend and will award one competitor, courtesy of Gibson, Slash's favorite guitar — a Gibson Les Paul guitar, and the amp to unleash its tone — a Marshall stack.

Entrants can upload their videos and/or mp3s here at Music Nation's site to create an artist profile. Slash will not only be the sole judge, but guitarists can also browse the web site for hidden interview footage of the icon himself.

Budding shredders can enter until 4 December. They can also get feedback from the public on their efforts, who can rank competition entries via head-to-head voting before the best ten are judged by Slash beginning on December 5. The winner will be announced on the web site December 10.
