To celebrate one year of online guitar lessons with ArtistWorks, Paul Gilbert is giving away one of his guitars!

I can't thank [Paul] enough,” says online student Patrick Lelek. “We see constant improvement from our peers, EVERY video response is a valuable aid. I am constantly overwhelmed by what is presented here.”

ArtistWorks, the leading interactive lifestyle social learning platform announced the one year anniversary of their Online Rock Guitar School with Paul Gilbert.

The 30-day celebration runs through July 15, 2013. And when it’s over, one lucky student will get one of Paul Gilbert’s signature Ibanez PGM301 guitars from his personal collection.

Gilbert will be playing the guitar throughout the month as he provides Video Exchange™ responses to practice videos submitted by students of his online guitar lessons.

In addition to the grand prize, each of the “Original 25” students who signed up for Paul’s school and are still members will receive a “Paul Gilbert is My Teacher” T-Shirt designed by Gilbert himself. Plus, T-shirts will be given away at random to 25 of the new students who sign up between June 15 and July 15.

Finally, for those guitarists who can’t join by the July 15 deadline to be eligible for Paul’s personal PGM301 contest, ArtistWorks is giving away a new Ibanez Artist guitar here, through June 22.

In the year since launching, Paul Gilbert has become ArtistWorks’ fastest growing artist. He’s set a record for most Video Exchanges and he’s even recorded a video exchange lesson from the back of a town car on the way to a concert.

At the same time, guitarists around the world have taken their playing to a new level with a comprehensive library of pre recorded video rock guitar lessons, combined with personalized Video Exchanges with Gilbert. It’s unique new way of learning that combines Paul Gilbert’s unparalleled talents as a player and teacher with a unique social learning environment where every Video Exchange provides a new lesson for the community.

I can't thank [Paul] enough,” says online student Patrick Lelek. “We see constant improvement from our peers, EVERY video response is a valuable aid. I am constantly overwhelmed by what is presented here.”
