Muse competition winners

Remember that super massive competition that gave you the chance to win a guitar signed by the band, tickets to their gig and the opportunity to meet Matt Bellamy and the boys backstage? All you had to do to enter was reinterpret the best riff of the decade Plug In Baby using any means necessary.

Well, after sifting through entries including riffs played on bottles of beer, on Mario Bros and of course a few Guitar Hero moments the winners can be announced.

The winner entry comes from Sinead Downes of Brisbane, who remixed the riff into something George Harrison would approve of with the help of the ‘Baby Indian Sitar’ setting on her keyboard.

The competition she facesd was so fierce that we had a tie for the runners up prize, with Melboune’s Finn Langham and Sydneysider Jack Shepherd both receiving the runners up prize. Langham’s phone call was one of the funniest entries we received, while Shepherd impressed us with a guitar he built from scratch using a design created by Matt Bellamy and guitar maker Hugh Manson.
