Musicians love to receive a new musical instrument for many reasons. One is just the joy that anyone feels to get something new. But that feeling fades fast. What lasts is the learning and experimenting that can go on for months, taking the musician out of their comfort zone (or worse, their rehearsal rut) and allowing a new platform for their self-expression. This contest might be the perfect elixir for three musicians in Canada since we are giving away one Kramer guitar and two Yamaha keyboards.

Kramer Focus VT211S Guitar delivers the fat-strat sound you love

Vintage-style guitars - Kramer

You know you want this guitar. I know I do. It brings me back to the great hair bands of the eighties. The Best Buy Blog review by Nikolai should be your first stop to learn more about this instrument. He discussed why the Kramer Focus VT211S Guitar is a fun instrument to play and demonstrated it’s tone and range with a selection of songs (including one Van Halen piece).

Yamaha keyboards expand musical abilities of any level of player

Yamaha PSR-e373 Keyboard

Learning new songs has never been more fun than it is on one of the two Yamaha keyboards we are giving away in this contest. Again, to learn more about the PSR-E273 or the PSR-E373, you should read the reviews by Nikolai Olekhnovitch. He discussed many of the features of these two instruments and demonstrated how Yamaha makes learning fun and easy. These two keyboards are incredibly versatile and offer something for every keyboard player, from beginner to experienced.

Imagine playing a new instrument right now

Some people say musical ability comes mostly from practice; others say it’s from talent. Both are likely involved, but to get the most enjoyment, I believe you need to exercise your musical imagination. I love the lyric, “Picture yourself in a boat on a river,” because it’s a great example of the marriage of imagination and music. I challenge you to picture yourself with a Yamaha or Kramer, learning to play Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds or some other song you’ve heard a million times and want to be able to reproduce on your own. Then enter this contest for your chance to win a great instrument from Best Buy.

How to enter

Entering this contest is easy, but you can only enter once. First, picture yourself sitting in a quiet room in your home with a new guitar or keyboard from Best Buy, and then tell us in a comment below what song you are going to learn first and why you chose that song.
