As a little twist on my usual post covering the most viewed lessons of the previous month, I thought it would be interesting to show you guys the 10 most watched guitar lessons for the entire year of 2018.

The Holidays are upon us, which means peak seasonality in the guitar industry.


'Tis the season of giving!

Many people receive a guitar as a gift, but of course, can't play it. Yet...

This is where online lessons come into play.


As I mentioned in my article on how to teach yourself guitar, the best way to learn guitar from home is through online lessons.


  • efficient
  • allow you to learn from home, at your own pace
  • super cheap compared to a real live teacher

top 5 guitar song lessonsHello everybody, welcome to another edition of the top 5 guitar lessons on TheGuitarLesson.com.

If you are new to this series of posts, here is a quick run down.

Every month, I jump into my website analytics program to dig into what has been working, and what hasn't. This involves analyzing which lessons you guys watch.

Hoping to motivate you to pick up the guitar and practice more, I share my findings with you every month.

Last months was a very exciting one. We had our annual Cyber Monday sale, which was a massive hit as always. Loads of people jumped on the discounted annual membership.

Why do we have a Cyber Monday sale instead of a Black Friday sale? No reason really. Most companies have a sale on both occasions, but I wanted to keep it simple. I chose Monday since it's Cyber 🙂

Leading up to the sale, we also released several new lessons in November.

Let's see if they made it to the top of the Most Watched list.

top 5 guitar song lessonsHi guys, welcome to another installment of my "regular" TOP 5 posts. I used quotation marks, since I didn't write last month's post. Too many things going on during the summer for my family.

We were on 2 vacations, camps for the kids, fun at the beach. It's been a great summer!

Autumn is hitting us with a bang. Lots of rain, which means lots of practice time. Visitor stats have already started climbing, which is natural due to the seasonality of the guitar biz.

I hope you didn't neglect our guitar during the summer (like me), but if you did, it's time to jump back into it.

Here are the most viewed lessons of last month.

top 5 guitar song lessonsHello everybody, welcome to this month's report of the most popular song lessons on TheGuitarLesson.com.

We're right smack in the middle of summer. Vacation time, beaches, pools, parties, BBQ. Summer is probably my favorite time of year.

Most guitar players tend to slack off a bit during the summer months, when there are so many other things to do. I know I haven't been playing as much as I would want to. It's best to play your guitar every day for at least an hour. It is undoubtedly hard to get that practice time in during summer, but try.

The visitor stats for the site also shows that it's summer, there had been a dip in traffic, which is to be expected.

I just realized that I forgot to write the Top 5 post last month (May). My apologies to our regular readers, must have been the summer heat clouding my mind...

Now let's have a look at those stats now.

To motivate you to play new songs, to keep on practicing, and to keep on getting better at the guitar. I'm hoping that by seeing what other members of TheGuitarLesson.com are doing, you'll get an irresistible urge to grab your guitar and start playing these songs 🙂

April was an interesting month for us. Google changed something in it's algorithm, and the result is that the site gets about 30% less visitors from Google search. Not good.

We'll need to step up our presence on social media, so if you're reading this, please like and share this page with your friends on whichever social media platform you're active on. Thanks in advance!

Now let's have a look at the list.

top 5 guitar song lessonsHey guys, welcome back to another edition of my monthly report on the 5 most popular song lessons on TheGuitarLesson.com. I like to share this report with you guys, because I hope it will motivate you to learn & play more songs, the songs your peers are playing to be exact.

Springtime is here, and welcome it is. It's been a long and hard winter in most parts of the world, so everyone can use a bit of sun and heat. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining. What a great season!

You will probably start going outdoors more, which usually translates into less practice time on your guitar. I would really encourage you to buy a cheap acoustic guitar, and take it with you. Are you going camping? To the beach? Over to a friends house for a barbecue? Take your cheap travelers guitar with you, learn a few campfire songs, and strum away 🙂

2018 is starting out strong, it looks like a lot of people got guitars for Christmas this year. It's been a cold winter in most parts of the world, it's freezing cold and snowing even as I write this post (in Europe). The US is the same. Australia? Not quite 🙂 The cold weather keeps people inside, and people pick up their guitar more. Statistical fact. And as Winston Churchill said, "I only believe in statistics that I doctored myself."

So without further ado, here is the top 5 list of tutorials from February.
