Epiphone Les PaulEpiphone guitars are inspired by Gibson and made for guitarists of all abilities. I believe the world needs more guitarists, and Epiphone is making that happen by creating high quality musical instruments available at your local Best Buy at great prices. In fact, order it online—you’ll be very happy with the guitar and be learning to play your favourite songs in no time. On the blog we’ve been testing some of these guitars, and now you can enter for a chance to win one.

Do you have a guitar player in your family?

There are too few guitarists on this planet. The recent passing of the legendary Eddie Van Halen made me wonder if we are replacing guitarists fast enough. How many people in your family play guitar? My answer … not enough! This should be the age when everyone you know can play. After all, great quality instruments have never been more accessible or affordable. Holiday season is approaching and Best Buy has a huge selection online that you should really consider when creating your gift list.

And great quality instruction is readily available too. You’ve probably heard that many of the great players, like Eddie who I just mentioned, never had a formal guitar lesson. He would have likely learned a lot faster if he had the one tool that all guitarists use now … the Internet. Or you might already know a guitarist who can provide some initial lessons. I taught both my children to play guitar, and the first guitar I bought for them was an Epiphone.

Mama let that boy play some rock and roll

The 3 Epiphone Les Paul Special I prizes for this contest will enable you to play lots of musical styles, including heart-pounding rock and roll.

Win an Epiphone Les Paul Guitar Contest Rules and Regulations

Good Luck


  1. My wife is the musical one in our family and did take guitar lessons at one point in her life. I think she should learn to play some Pink Floyd or Beatles songs.

  2. My mom is just learning how to play guitar so this would be perfect for her. She loves Johnny Cash and named me after “A Boy Named Sue” so I think that’s what she should learn first!

  3. I have wanted to learn how to play guitar for years. This beautiful Les Paul guitar would allow me to fulfill my dream and to finally learn how to play Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”!

  4. What a beauty!! My daughter is a terrific singer but it would benefit her to learn an instrument like the beautiful Les Paul guitar! I think the first song she should learn is the basics, an oldie Smoke on the Water!! 🙂

  5. My youngest has started to play an instrument. It would be nice for her to learn to play the guitar and in the future play some John Denver tunes.

  6. The calluses from learning acoustic guitar are still coming in yet I can’t help but dream of playing ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ on the electric.

  7. If I was the lucky winner to win this awesome guitar I would learn to play my wife’s and my wedding dance song Amazed by Lonestar.

  8. My husband and myself. We’d both LOVE to learn the guitar. Eruption by Van Halen should be an “easy” one! LOL

  9. I would love to learn how to play a guitar… and I would especially love to learn to play anything by The Tragically Hip.

  10. Hello
    I would love to win one of these guitars. I’m started learning a few years ago. There are so many amazing songs to learn. Difficult to choose just one. Learn them all.!

  11. I would like my wife to learn how to play the guitar so that we can have sing alongs around the campfire! the first song I would like her to play is HOUSE AT POOH CORNER as I know it is a favorite of hers

  12. I would love to see my nephew Luca learn how to play the guitar. He’s 6 and full of energy. Music is a way of life that encourages positive and creative learning.

  13. My son needs to learn the guitar. He told me he wants to go on the golden buzzer talent show sho he better start working on a talent. He should learn House of the Rising Sun first. My dad used to play that song all the time when I was growing up.

  14. I would like to learn to play the guitar, and the first song I’d like to learn how to play is Johnny B. Goode, by Chuck Berry (optimistic, I know).

  15. My brother needs to learn so he can play with my Dad and I. “Blackbird” by The Beatles with 3 guitars playing would be pretty sick.

  16. My brother needs to learn to play guitar; he is only in grade six. I would love to win this for him to learn.

    And for him to learn stairway to heaven as his first song 🙂

  17. My family have always been avid campers and i am always jealous of that campsite where the person pulls out a guitar by the fire and starts strumming away. I would love to learn to play so that our family could do that as well. I would probably first like to learn something by John Denver like Country Roads.

  18. My husband needs to learn how to play guitar because he needs a hobby. The first song he should learn to play is Eruption by Eddie Van Halen.

  19. My son Sam should learn how to play guitar because his dad is a fantastic player and could teach him! Plus, Sam loves music of all genres (he’s 17) and is talented! The first song he should learn would be anything by The Tragically Hip!

  20. My daughter is musically inclined and has wanted to learn to play the guitar, I’m hoping she would learn Smoke on the Water first since it was sampled brilliantly in a BDP song

  21. My sister needs to learn how to play. I don’t care what she learns but she’s been meaning to learn for about 18 years.

  22. My husband and sons already play, my daughter is learning so I guess that leaves me!! I would like to learn any Tragically hip song ❤

  23. My daughter is learning guitar right now, but she doesn’t have one of her own. She’s working on her own rendition of “Mad World”.

  24. I’m pretty sure it would be me in my family that would want to learn, and how about “stairway to heaven” for my first song

  25. My sister would love to learn how to play the guitar she always has wanted to and I think she would learn a Melanie Martinez song first that is one of her favourite artists

  26. I’d love to win one of these guitars. The 1st song I would learn to play would be “Shoot to thrill” by ACDC. I think it would sound great on one of these Les Pauls. I like the red on personally.
