Because of it's popularity, I decided to create a similar post every month, to let all of you know what others are watching and learning, so I will write a post on the most popular guitar lessons you guys viewed each month.

Unlike last month, this month you guys viewed a lot of the older lessons we have on the website. Here are the five most popular lessons of July, 2012: Read more

GuitarTricks has just announced that they are going to start releasing The Beatles songs very soon.

To promote this, they are offering a discount on their 1 year membership for just a few more days until November 20, 2013. The sale price is just $99, more than fair for a year's worth of guitar lessons.

They call it a song fund, to help drive more new students, which helps them with the costs of the new Beatles lessons.

Hi guys,

This list is a compilation of what you've been up to, and what you've been learning at TheGuitarLesson.com. I find looking at such statistics really interesting, since it gives me a better idea of what you are learning and having fun with, and it also gives me a bit of guidance on what types of new lessons you would be interested in.

June saw the release of lessons on several really big name songs, which understandably sort of stole the spotlight from other, more classic song lessons.

Here is a breakdown of the 5 most popular guitar lessons in the month of June, 2012: Read more

I have been working on a very exciting project for the last month, and it will soon be time to unveil the result of our work. But not just yet 🙂 I just want to let everyone know, that an aspiring new fashion designer has approached us to get us involved in designing her new collection of guitar related T-shirts!

Nice shirt ;-)

Nice shirt 😉

And no, I will not become a supermodel, I'm just advising her on guitar related things, and giving my opinion on her designs. After giving it some thought, I decided that designing wearable T-shirts for guitar players is a great idea, and jumped into it. I love the guitar and basically anything guitar related, but I just haven't ever seen any guitar related clothing that I would actually wear.

Why has the fashion industry left guitarists with the same old black based rock shirts for decades? This topic eludes me completely, especially since the number of worldwide guitarists is absolutely massive, and growing each day. But oh well, this fashion blunder will soon be mended, I guarantee that.
