We're happy to announce a new program that will draw some well-deserved attention to members of the massive online community of ESP Guitars. We're going to be featuring videos by ESP Community Members on the front page of espguitars.com, and we want you to be part of it.
HOW TO GET FEATURED
1. You need to be a registered member of the ESP Community. If you're not a member, click here to register. It's free.
2. Post a video playing any guitar or bass we make. Any ESP, ESP E-II, or LTD is welcome.
3. To post a video, you can upload a video file (we accept most kinds) directly to our site, or share a YouTube link. Doing this is easy.
a. Click on your member name at the top of the page.
b. Scroll over "Share".
c. Click "Upload Video".
d. On the video upload page, you can choose whether to upload a file or share a YouTube link. Fill out the description, making sure to at least include the song title (and original artist, if you're doing a cover). If your video is featured, we might edit the title and description to better tell people about you. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you click the box that says "Show this only on my profile page," we will likely never see it. Don't click that box if it's your intent for us to possibly feature your video.
ESP staff members will be looking through the uploaded community member videos, and selecting videos that we feel are good for showcasing the guitars and basses we make. When we see/hear videos we like, we'll randomly select them and put them on the front page of the site.
WHAT KIND OF VIDEO?
This is very simple. We want videos that help show off our instruments... that's all. First and foremost, we want videos with excellent sound quality. You might do a live shredfest, or a playthrough, or a live show with your band, or a complete music video. Above all else, we want your videos where our guitars and basses sound as great as they can be. All musical styles are welcome. The video itself is much less important... we're happy to feature you jamming in your bedroom as long as it sounds awesome, and you're playing one of our guitars or basses.
Finally, as should be obvious but we'll say it anyway: when we like what you're playing, we're more likely to choose to feature you in a spotlight. Since all of the ESP Community is made up of fellow musicians, we all like to get inspired by hearing great performances, killer tones, innovative/interesting chops, and the like. Give us your best stuff.
Let us know in the comments below, and then start uploading those videos. Then, keep your eye on the front page of the ESP site to see if the next spotlight is you!
