Congratulations to the winner of the Tonos.com Steve Vai Guitar Challenge…
MICHAEL LEE HILL!
Michael was one of a truckload of entrants who played their best over the bed track of Vai’s “Jibboom.” Steve Vai personally picked the winner from 17 incredible finalists (usually these types of contests get down to three finalists, but these were so good that we ended up with SEVENTEEN finalists in the final round!). It wasn’t so much about competing for the “best” — there’s no way to choose who’s “best” and if there were enough Steve Vais in enough alternate universes sifting through these entries, surely every one of them could get the nod. But somebody must rise to the top of the list and take the prize, and Michael Lee Hill from Cleveland, Ohio was singled out by our universe’s Steve Vai as the winning entry. Big congratulations to Michael, and everyone who entered!
We would also like to recognize the immense talent and ability of the 16 other finalists, with our congratulations:
