The payout for first place was a Taylor SolidBody electric guitar, free studio time, a Crybaby Wah pedal, Dunlap picks, Elixir strings and cables ... And a slot at Milwaukee's "Summerfest," toted as "The World's Largest Muscial Festival." Not bad, Bud.
Tyler's been at it for a while. He was 12 when he started playing. His conviction and respect for melody and songwriting has helped set him apart from a lot of solo acoustic players. Shea out shined predominately electric opponents to take top honors. Pretty killer. Check him out at tylershea.com for tunes, pics 'n more.
