World Guitar Day 2017: Everything you need to know!

World Guitar Day

What would rock and metal be without the guitar? Non-existent that’s what! So today, on October 6, we are celebrating the first annual World Guitar Day! The sound of the six-string unites music fans across the globe, it’s music that transcends boundaries and languages, it’s the sound of rebellion and inclusivity in one.

And today we’re raising our horns to the power of the guitar with a ton of special features and videos for you all.

Keep an eye on the TeamRock sites for exclusive content, or just visit this handy page which will be updated throughout the day!

You can also follow all the action on social media with the hashtags #WGD17 and #WorldGuitarDay.
