Vancouver Guitarist Don Alder Announced as Top 10 Finalist in Guitar
Superstar Competition.

VANCOUVER, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - Touted as American Idol for guitar, Guitar Superstar is Guitar Player magazine's annual competition to crown North America's hottest new guitar player. In 2007, Don Alder became the first Canadian to win the International Fingerstyle Championships held in the US. Alder finds his inspiration in social responsibility as the longtime friend and colleague of Man in Motion Rick Hansen. From 1985 to 1987, Alder put his music career on hold to be a member of Rick's Man In Motion World Tour team and learned some valuable lessons along the way. Guitar Superstar finalists test their musical mettle in a live showdown in Livermore, California on September 18, 2010.
