Jeff Loomis Wants You!

Your chance to open for a guitar legend!


Jeff Loomis’ complex shredding has been a central part of the progressive but powerful and thrashy edge often attributed to Nevermore’s trademark sound. Taking the classic techniques he learned from listening to legends like Jason Becker and Yngwie Malmsteen as a teen and applying his own ingenuity, Loomis has carved his own niche and created an instantly recognisable style. 

Don’t miss your chance to see Jeff Loomis live and be in the audience for your chance to win a Schecter SGR C7 electric guitar.

You could also be shredding it up on stage with Jeff Loomis by entering the Schecter Shred Off Competition.

The national winner will take home a signed Schecter Jeff Loomis FR7 PLUS get to open for Jeff at their state’s clinic. State winners will receive a 12 pack of Rotosound strings and a Schecter t-shirt. 

Simply make a 1-2 minute video of yourself showing your best shred, upload it to YouTube and email the video link to us at Entries close Friday September 19 so get shredding now! Full details available at
