I see Fernando got selected,  But I didn't get any message or something. I'm dying to know if I got selected!

Hi Lauren:

Thank you for selecting Fernando (Fez) Guzman for the drum clinic!  His plane reservation has been made and ground transportation set.  He's so excited and humbled at the invitation, and hopefully you will be there to meet him as well!  You will be impressed, most of all, by his personality and his drumming abilities!
Again, thank you so much for this opportunity for Fernando; you won't be disappointed with your choice!

Best regards,

Hi, my name is Jonas Piknias, im 19 years old and I come from Schweinfurt, Germany.

I've been playing the Guitar for around 3,5 years.

I admire Guitar Players like John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Hendrix...  my biggest influence is John Frusciante, I love his Music.

I listen to Incubus for some years, I love to play their Music and I like the way Mike plays his Guitar!

So it would be fantastic to play together with Mike and Incubus !






Greetings from Germany !

My name is Greg LaBomme, I've been playing guitar for 9 years, I've learned by ear and by reading tablature, my inspirations are Metallica, Prince, and Incubus. I think this would be a great opportunity to further my musical knowledge.

I am Odanis Rodriguez,20 years old, submitting this video to audition for the Drum Clinic. 

P.S. There were quite a few bloopers but the drumming was essentially one solid take...taken from my basement.

Hope you like? C:

Hello errrryone.

My name's Arvid. I'm from Mexicali, Mexico. I'm trying to get a spot on MIKE'S GUITAR CLINICS.

(I tell you all of this on the video, but just wrote it in case my accent is a detriment :P ).

... Which would be nothing short of breathtaking.

It's probably too little, too late. But then again : IF NOT NOW WHEN? My apologies if I broke any of the rules.

Thanks for watching. Be well everyone. ENJOY! :)

My name is Jarod Caitlin and I am auditioning for the guitar clinic. I STARTED PLAYING GUITAR BECAUSE OF INCUBUS. No one inspires my voice and guitar more than Brandon and Mike. I love love love this opportunity and I hope I recieve an invitation to LA. *crossing fingers*


NOTE: The first 7 seconds of the video seem to have a weird visual effect, but the rest of it should be fine. The audio is ok throughout. Maybe its just my computer.
