Events:  Guitar Center is community driven.  And with that comes events through out the year that supports musicians locally and nationally.  Competitions like Battle of the Blues guitar contest and the Drum Off have helped to launch successful music careers for it's competitors, as well as brought musicians together to network and bond in their arts.  We now have a Singer Songwriter competition with some amazing prizes and experiences for the winner.  We also have opportunities to have clinics and special vendor sponsored events to help inspire the musician in you!  Just check out the photos and videos from our Greg Koch guitar clinic sponsored by Fender G Dec, and our Stanton Moore Drum Workshop sponsored by Gretsch and Vic Firth!  Then there was the clinic from the Legendary Billy Sheehan right here in our Albuquerque store sponsored by Hartke bass amplification!

The bottom line is this, we help people make music.
