Thank you for visiting our website and signing up for the competition. At Six String Theory, our goal is to create a platform for everyone to perform, improve and learn from other musicians around the world.
While this is a Guitar, Piano, Bass and Drum competition, (and there are certainly amazing prizes), the real challenge lies within yourself … to get better, grow, improve, and stay passionate.
With my experience of 50 years, plus the combined knowledge of our esteemed judges, we’re supporting aspiring musicians…through performances, mentoring, education, & recording. We look forward to watching everyone’s videos! Let’s get started…
Welcome to the world-wide Six String Theory competition!
2020 is our 10th year anniversary since we began with the first competition and the “Six String Theory” record that started it all!
Look for an announcement in the 2nd half of this year. We are planning some amazing live International performances, plus recording, educational & career opportunities.
When we do launch, we are looking for guitar players in 6 categories… & rhythm section players in 3 categories:
4)Blues (elec & acc)
8)Bass (elec & acc)
We are so proud watching the development of so many musicians that have joined the SST family in the last 10 years! To be continued…
