You'll even get to keep the guitar!
Ed Sheeran has launched a very exciting competition, in which one lucky fan will fly to a gig in New York for a private backstage guitar lesson.
The 'Perfect' singer has offered the amazing prize in order to raise funds for Drop4Drop, a charity aiming to provide access to clean water to people around the world.
In a video which you can watch above, he said: “The prize is I will teach you to play one of my songs on guitar, and then you’ll get a guitar that I’ll sign and give to you after the lesson.
“The lesson will take place backstage at my gig at MetLife Stadium (New Jersey). So you’ll also get to go to that gig. I will pay for you to be there, so I’ll fly you out to New York, cover your hotel and give you tickets to the show."
That's a pretty amazing prize!
Fans can enter the competition by donating between $10 (£7.70) and $100 (£77) to Drop4Drop via the organisation’s Rally Up page. Those who pay larger sums can then be entered more times. The lucky fan will then head backstage at the gig in September and receive VIP tickets to watch him perform.
Ed's pal Adele also tweeted about the competition:
The competition will be open until September 1 at 4am (GMT), with the winner being chosen on September 7 at 9pm (GMT).
Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran will star in his own upcoming documentary titled Songwriter, while he has also launched an Instagram page for his cute cats.
