A note from Lee Ritenour:
A warm welcome and hello to all the fans, friends and Six String Theory Musicians around the world.
I am happy to announce that we will be continuing with our Six String Theory worldwide competition in 2021! It will begin in the 2nd half of 21’ for all styles of the guitar, piano/ keys, bass & drums. More details to follow!
Also, we do have some great news for our Six String Musicians today! We will be hosting a FREE contest in association with my new album Dreamcatcher.
Dreamcatcher will be available December 4, 2020 on Mascot Label Group (Worldwide) and Yamaha Music Communications Co. LTD/Yamaha Music Foundation (Japan).
If you want to be a part of the contest, joining is easy! Here’s the basic idea:
I’m releasing the sheet music for 5 of my new songs from Dreamcatcher, and you will get to hear my solo guitar version when the album comes out, but I want to hear YOUR version!
Simply download the sheet music and record a video of your interpretation of the music and tag me on Instagram or Facebook! Please use the hashtag #DreamcatcherGuitarContest.
You’ll find the song list below. I want to hear any version from you. It can be electric, acoustic, solo , a band version, any style, tempo, groove, etc…make it your own … but definitely a video of you playing!
We’ve also got some great prizes lined up as well! Check below for full details on how to enter.
Best Wishes! Lee
