It’s the end of another year and time to take down the Christmas lights again. I want to welcome all the new readers who found us during the past year. We hope you’ll be with us for a long time to come and stay involved with guitar and music. The time you spend on the site makes all our work worthwhile. I also want to say thanks to all our old friends who have seen us through a few ups and downs in 2008.
There were plenty of changes during the past year. We moved our lessons to a new content management system. This is already making our work easier. We also changed the look of our site yet again. On top of that we had to upgrade our server unexpectedly and things have been running pretty smoothly since.
Perhaps the most fun addition to Guitar Noise this past year is the Guitar Noise Podcast, hosted by none other than David Hodge. David is perhaps the nicest guitar teacher in the New England area. All his hard work and occasional perfectionism should encourage us all to do better at whatever it is we are doing. And enjoy doing it too!
Let’s end the year by looking back. Here’s a list of the our most popular lessons published in 2008:
- Help! – The Beatles (June 8 )
- Brain Damage / Eclipse – Pink Floyd (April 1)
- Man on the Moon – R.E.M. (November 17)

I want to wish you all a very happy and successful new year! I’m looking forward to a great 2009 and hope to continue seeing you all, wherever you are.
