So if you don’t know yet… AaronsGuitarLessons.com is now doing periodical “Give-a-Ways” to random users and contributors of the website. Drawings will be held and everyone will have a chance to win gear, accessories, acoustic and electric guitars, and much more. With each “Give-a-Way”, users will have the opportunity to donate to the website for a chance to win. So if you like the free lessons, donate and receive opportunities to win stuff!
Last month, AaronsGuitarLessons.com did the first give-a-way campaign and it went great. So thanks for all of your support and congratulations to YongJin from Surrey, British Columbia Canada for winning the acoustic guitar. So I’m not wasting anytime. We are starting with the second give-a-way, and this time there will be three winners. The grand prize winner will receive a fender squire strat electric guitar with a Line 6 TonePort UX1 home studio package. The TonePort UX1 is awesome and the full description of what it does is below. Basically, it’s what I use to do all my electric guitar video lessons. I actually do most all of my video lessons with the TonePort because it also allows you to connect vocal microphones as well for voice audio recording. It’s a USB audio interface that allows you to hook up your guitar, microphones, or whatever you wish to your computer to process sounds and record audio. It’s a sweet piece of equipment to have. The 1st and 2nd runner ups will receive a 5 pack of D’addario acoustic strings and one dozen Dunlop Tortex picks. You can also choose your string and pick size if you win.
Start recording with TonePort™ UX1 – the USB interface that brings Line 6 guitar, bass, and vocal tone to the world of desktop recording and production. The TonePort UX1 hardware interface is USB-powered and comes with Line 6 GearBox™ modeling software, which provides a must-have collection of 16 guitar and 5 bass amp/cab models, 29 stompbox and studio effects (up to 10 at once), and 6 models of high-end studio microphone preamps. Featuring a high-quality microphone input with preamp, a guitar/bass instrument input, stereo line inputs and outputs, stereo headphone jack, and an analog merge monitoring input, TonePort UX1 makes it easy to plug-in and start recording on your PC or Mac®.
