Since April, we’ve been on the hunt for the best amateur young guitarists around the world, to see who should be crowned Young Guitarist of the Year 2018. The live final was held at the UK Guitar Show on Saturday 29 September. Hundreds of entry videos were submitted, before standout performances were sent to star judges Matt Tuck, Rob Chapman and Chris Buck.
The three finalists were then judged at the show itself by Total Guitar, Guitarist, Guitar Techniques and MusicRadar editors, as well as Chris Buck.
Abigail Zachko was a finalist at the PRS-sponsored event.
