The holiday season is here! #JustinGuitarHolidays

It's time for our annual giveaway -  get ready for some action and awe$ome prizes. :)
Hey, how you doing? Justin here.

I'm a bit late with this, but y'all know: it's been an insane year! I've got lots of exciting new stuff going on – a new songbook, fully rebuilding this website, the app, the studio...

But it's super cool that #JustinGuitarHolidays is finally out, and I think it's pretty fun. We'll get to spend some more time together, and I'll try to give back a bit of the joy y'all always give to me! ;) The giveaway is worldwide – you're welcome to join no matter where you are in the world. I'll do my best to have your prize shipped as early as possible. 2020 has been more like an F-chord than an Em to most people, but I hope to help spread the joy of music around the world. Even if it's just a bit. :)

Guitar Pro, Andertons Music Co., and much more!
So we've gone wild this year, and between November 25th and January 13th, we're running a bunch of cool sweepstakes and competitions. I think there's something for each one of you, no matter your skill level, how much free time you have, or your personality...

I've partnered up with GuitarPro, Andertons, D'Addario, Boss, and other industry friends. We got cool gifts for you, and there are MANY ways you can win! Full Guitar Pro licenses, awesome pedals, ukulele, and exclusive lessons with me are some of the prizes you can try! :) Check this post for a summary, or keep reading to learn more.

Most of the contests are happening on my Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/justinguitar/) and Forum Community. I'll also pop up some stuff on my Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/justinguitarofficial/) – and there's a REAL cool thing coming for the Beginner App as well. Make sure you're following me, and the notifications for my profile are on so you won't miss anything!

Let's make music together!
The #JustinGuitarHolidays will be a cool way to have fun together! I'll have the chance to check a bit closer how some of you are doing on your guitar journey, which is always inspiring. I really enjoy giving private classes!

Anyway, I want you to feel WELCOME to join us. The idea of these 'competitions' is not to judge your skill but to have fun and maybe learn a bit more along the process.

I wish y'all an AWESOME holiday season and good luck with the giveaway!

I hope to inspire you to share your guitar story and love within our cool global community. :)

Cheers, Justin.

Ready to have some fun and win awe$ome prizes?
Let me show you how you'll be able to join and what you can win!

I think you can only add video through a mobile device.
You can log in to your instragram from a mac or pc as well but I don't think you can add pics or video that way.

You should :
  • install the instagram app on a mobile device
  • Get your video on that device somehow (as a movie clip in your phone pictures). Ex: dropbox, google drive etc..
  • upload the video through the mobile app on your phone
  • To upload the video, on your Instagram's main page (on your profile), there's a + icon.
    You have to select 'post' and choose the video from your phone'
  • Don't forget to add the hashtag #JustinGuitarMusicTheory in the text part of your post!
Thanks! I sat in front of my Mac for about an hour trying to figure out how to do it. I’ll transfer to my mobile tomorrow and try again.

Edited:

I've just worked out that I'm able to upload a video to my Instagram account on my laptop as well as a mobile device. Both ways end up with the video being located in an Instagram service called IGTV. A separate app, but accessible in Instagram, developed by them to handle videos longer than 60 seconds, which mine is. Thing is my video entry is there publicly in IGTV but I don't know how I can enter it to competition?

Edited:
Think I can see how to do it. I'll try tomorrow.

Thanks Adi.

@Gordon

The website is central to Justin's plans now and well into the future.

He was ready to ditch social media then he had a change of mind and Laryne is now working on his social media platforms to raise their usage and put more into them.

I think it is a powerful tool, I only follow Justin on Instagram and I think Justin's team is doing really good job. With a paid promotion I think he will get a lot of younger generation into his website and lessons which is the end goal isn't it? :)

That is certainly part of the overall aim ... business plan I guess you could call it.

I only access Instagram on my laptop and I'm not sure it works the same as a phone app. I just don't look at it. Too much else to take up my time as is.

I use Instagram about 2 mins a day just to see what ppl are up to (don't have many friends and they are not a frequent users too) and some of the public figures like Justin, however I significantly limited amount of people I follow since it was just too much and many public figures just use it to promote some products or political fronts which is not something I am into.

I'm not a big Instagram user - I opened an account last fall because a friend of mine told me that someone local was posting a lot of drone videos and photos and she thought I'd enjoy them. I couldn't abandon my first love for my new hobby though lol so my IG account description is "Guitars. Drones. Dogs. Cats." I’ve only done a handful of posts myself, I mostly watch drone videos (and cute pet videos 😊). I don't really understand it though (must be too old!).  I got an iPhone notification that Justin mentioned me in a post and then it took me a good long while to find the post. The 'Your Story' part I don't get at all. Adi's link on my iPhone didn't take me to to the Your Story page, but it does on my laptop. I'm thrilled to be chosen, beyond what you may imagine :). I think there could have been more up-take on the IG contest though, but I think for the Pandemic Class one in particular it did bring more exposure to Justin.

Thanks David, Darrell, and glpguitar 😊

And go down to the corner newsagent to buy a newspaper to keep tabs on current affairs, curse the introduction of adverts between and even worse during TV programmes  ;D

The digital revolution has introduced some many new things into everyday life. We can debate what is for the better or worse.

Better stop now before I talk about people's Twitter accounts being frozen ...

Congrats to our wonderful winners, which I post in conventional style.

I was a 17 year old mainframe operator back in '73, before FurEd became an unemployment solution.
Just about do FB grudgingly, do Whatsapp as international calls cost nowt.
Don't do Twitter, Instagram or Snapsumit, nor do I do high fives or fist bumps. I'm Olde English like the cidre. Just a grumpy old luddite. TV with 2 channels and no remote but there nowt on the other 1722 ch anyway.

But congrats to our winners !! Did I say that ? I get forgetful as well.  8)

Duly had an online hook up with JG and had a very useful hour of help. Perhaps the most helpful aspect was the feedback he gave me on my playing. This was really worthwhile. It had startled me when he suddenly sprung it on me that he wanted me to play stuff to him. Stressful or what?  ;)
He focused on the tension in my playing which should have been pretty obvious but I hadn't before taken any steps to actually consciously loosen up and focus on relaxing.

Gladly. I’ll get on it today.
Edit: yesterday a fail I’m afraid
Locked my MacBook and can’t log in. I’ll get on the write up ASAP.
P.S. anybody know anything about incorrect download messing up login on MacBook? I’ll post in the a more appropriate forum about the problem.
