Wanted: Album sales in exchange for guitar lessons

Trey Anastasio is starting the usual media blitz before his upcoming tour supporting his new Bar 17 album.

For fans that are into pre-ordering stuff, go ahead and preorder his new album and you’ll give yourself a chance to win a guitar lesson with Trey.


In celebration of Trey’s upcoming studio release, Bar 17, each album pre-order from the Trey online store not only comes with a free “18 Steps” bonus album, but upon placing their order, each customer will also automatically be entered to win a guitar lesson from Trey. The winner will receive a pair of tickets to a show of their choice on the upcoming Fall Tour (excluding Vegoose shows) where they will have the opportunity to arrive early for soundcheck and to talk guitar shop and theory with Trey for a half hour. The winner can bring their own acoustic guitar or use one of Trey’s Signature Limited Edition Martin acoustics. No previous guitar experience is necessary. The contest and pre-sale end 10/3 when “Bar 17” becomes available in stores. All pre-orders will be shipped on or before the release date. For full details and contest information please visit Trey.com.

Let’s be frank here – no experience necessary, my ass! A pre-born shredder should win this, Trey should record an album with whoever wins, and then say that he’s planning on bringing back Phish at some point after they’re done touring. You heard it here first.
