5 Most Played Lessons of February, 2014

As I do every month, today I will share with which guitar lessons were the most popular in the month of February. Why do I think this is important enough to write about?

Because I'm hoping that seeing what other people are learning and enjoying will hopefully give everyone else a motivational boost, and start practicing more.

The month of February is an interesting one, the boost of new players from Christmas and January starts to die off a bit. I've seen this trend for years, and know that it is industry wide.

Lots of people get a guitar for Christmas, or make it their new year's pledge to learn guitar, but not many actually continue learning for more than a few weeks. If you think about it, this is part of human nature actually. How many times have you set out to do something, learn something, but than backed off because of various circumstances?

It's the same with the guitar unfortunately, but I'm here to make sure that you, my dear Padawan, will continue learning for decades to come!

So in that spirit, lets have a look at what your peers have been learning last month

December is historically a very interesting month for the guitar industry, since it's Christmas time, and LOTS of people get guitars for Christmas. It's a really great present for sure, and naturally, people who get guitars start searching for ways to learn it. Some will end up seeing private teachers, but other's will learn online from sites such as, JamPlay, GuitarTricks, and so on.

Of course, the top 5 lessons of December will only slightly reflect the increased viewership, but it's coming, and will make January a very interesting month. Actually, the first few months of the year carry on the Christmas guitar craze, but I won't get ahead of myself, we'll see what happens in the following months.

5 Most Popular Song Tutorials of October, 2013

Oh how time flies, it's the end of October, which means it's time to have a look at what the most popular guitar lessons were during the month. This should be an interesting month, since it was a school month, without any back-to-school things going on (like in September)

Back-to-school makes the lives of everyone somewhat irregular, children and parents alike, but October is a "clean" month, with everyone practicing the guitar as much as possible. Right?!

Yes, thanks for the nod. Actually, my family and I were on vacation for most of the month, so I was probably the one that got the least practice out of all of us. It's interesting that after we got back, I was a bit rusty for about a week, but as you might guess, I practiced more and it all came back 🙂

So that's enough storytelling, let's have a look at the most popular guitar lessons of October.

5 Most Popular Tutorials in September, 2013

It's time to have a look at the most popular guitar lessons on for the month of September, 2013. This should be an interesting month, since it's the first non-summer month, but still a bit skewed by back to school preparations and activities.

During the summer, most people don't really practice as much as they should, since they are preoccupied by vacations, summer outdoor activities, festivals, so that sort of stuff. It's a shame though, since during the summer, you generally have a bit more free time, but ah well.

Back to school activities during the first half of September makes the month a little irregular as well, since both parents, both schoolgoers, who would otherwise practice, don't do so because they are preoccupied with everything that starting the school year requires.
