You don't need to be an adult to play with us. Participation in Guitars Guitars Record is FREE! During the registration you will receive the participant's hand-held ID and the official Certificate.

You can play all types of guitars - acoustic, classical, electric as well as bass. Mandolins, banjo and ukulele are also acceptable. For electric guitars there will be a special sector with the possibility of connecting to the electric power, but we advise you to take with you the extension cable with the splitter.

The songs we will be playing this year and instructions on how to play can be found on our website. It is best to learn all the songs, but the most important thing is playing "Hey Joe" - this song is counted to the Guinness Record. During the event on the Market we will connect online with partnering centers abroad, where will be events supporting this year's record.
