The Brighton and Bristol Institutes Of Modern Music (BIMM) are offering the perfect way to spend your summer.
Total Guitar will host the music-making marathon between 2-5 August in Bristol and 9-12 August in Brighton, giving would-be shredders a close look at a range of playing styles, from funk and blues to pop and rock.
Of course, visitors to the Metal Hammer show, held between 16-19 August in Brighton, will be treated to some brutal tuition featuring face-melting riffs and thunderous blast beats.
To make the deal even sweeter, a whole host of expert tutors will be on hand, including members of Feeder, Skindred, CSS and Pitchshifter.
Each four-day course costs £299, but the guys at BIMM have offered one lucky Rhythm reader a free place on the course of their choice.
All you have to do to enter is email email@example.com with Rhythm/BIMM Summer School comp in the subject line, telling them what instrument you play plus your name, age, address and mobile number.
You have until 1 June to get your entry in. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
