    Post Who's This? Win an iPod Nano & Reverend guitar!

    During the month of January we will be challenging you to figure out the identity of 10 mystery guitarists from a selection of TrueFire video guitar lessons. We will give you a clue and point you in the right direction, but the rest is up to you. You can explore TrueFireTV to find the answer or, if you're a real pro, you might know who it is right off the bat!
    Either way, You will have 2 days to submit your answer via email to PROMO@TRUEFIRE.COM. All you have to include is which "Who's This?" you are responding to (#1 - #10), your name, and the identity of the unknown guitarist. At the end of each 2-day period we will randomly select a winner, who will take home a brand new Apple iPod Nano with video recording capabilities.

    In addition to the iPod, each of the 10 winners will have a chance to win a beautiful new Reverend Double Agent II Electric Guitar (seen below). To be eligible to win the guitar, you must submit a video (you can use the iPod Nano!) that explains to all why you want or need the guitar so badly. At the end of the month, we will post all 10 of the winners' videos and there will be a vote by the TrueFire community to determine the grand prize winner.


    If you have any questions about "Who's This?" feel free to contact Charlie or Zach. Good luck, practice smart, and play hard!

    Indeed it is!

    Bry50: Nope, I didn't get anything back yet either, I think they're gonna wait till the end and then let us know.

    I just sent my answer for #2, got this one in like 2 sec, not so much because of the playing, more because of the guitar I see.. hehe

    So I got the author, that's easy, but did any of you guys get the exact lesson?

    I think you only get a chance to win the guitar if you've won 1 of the 10 iPods? Cause' they say you could use the new iPod to shoot the vid.

    In addition to the iPod, each of the 10 winners will have a chance to win ......
    I believe you are correct Sir..

    The Winning Identities
    Who's This? #1 - The identity of our first mystery guitarist was David Hamburger. If you guessed correctly, you're eligible to win a new video iPod Nano and a chance at the new Reverend Guitar. The winner will be announced soon...

    Exclamation Video for guitar!

    I really don't like the idea of making a video, but I really want the guitar. It is kind of like when I really didn't like the idea on begging, but I really wanted some food. "So I got me a pen and a paper, and I made up my own little sign" (those lyrics are courtesy of the 5 Man Electrical Band) and it said WILL MAKE VIDEO FOR GUITAR. See you guys down at the interstate exit.

    I know what you mean, I don't even like having my picture taken. Of course that's all moot if one's name is picked out of the fish bowl. I wonder? Think Rachel and/or Nancy would be above a little bribery? Maybe a nice candy-gram?

    I missed #3 due to pure laziness. I did submit my answer for 1, 2 and 4. I got number 1 right but never received a confirmation as I did with number 3. I hope I didn't goof something up in submitting the answer.

    Hey Bry50,

    Nonetheless, thanks for letting us know.

    I guess whenver the do a update to the contest, they mess around with the webpage, so that's why it looked all screwy.

    Good luck on #5!
