We think it's both fun and informative to look back at what lessons, guitar tabs, chords/lyrics sheets, and other items you viewed the most over the past year. Not surprisingly, classic rock ruled the roost, and we can hardly blame you -- these songs are "classics" for a reason.

One of the most interesting results here is that our "Sultans of Swing" song lesson not only was your favorite item at, it was #1 in a landslide!

If you've already worked through these, great! If not, be sure to check out what you've been missing!
