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.
