Happy New Year to all!
Another year is past. I hope everyone out there made a lot of progress over the last year. If not, now's the time to get started on making 2012 a great year for your music!
Here are the highest viewed posts from 2011...
Here are the backing tracks we posted in 2011. By far, these were viewed (heard?) more than any other post when viewed as a whole. If you jammed to these in 2011, I know you had a good time. If you missed them, grab your guitar and enjoy!
My Life and Music Series
Last year, I asked several people who make their living through music write about their career path. For many people, music is a hobby (to some, a passionate hobby), for others, they've been blessed to be able to do what they love for a living.
Check out the series if you've thought about doing the same!
DIY Tube Amplifier Build
Last year, I decided to finally bite the bullet and build a tube amp. I've always been interested in how tube amps work, how to mod an amp, add new components, etc. So in 2011, I build a Gilmore Jr. 1/2 watt tube amp.
We're about half way through the video posts, so get up to speed on the build and watch for upcoming videos.
Those were our Top 3 for 2011. Here are a few more personal favorites that I want to show some additional love!
Yoda was a Jedi Master. I think if you applied his Jedi teachings to learning a musical instrument, well they serve you young padawan!
Music Lessons are what we do at Little Rock Jams. And as much as we would prefer to have students attend every lesson, we know life get's in the way sometimes. Here is a great post on what to do if you miss your music lesson.
Guest Post on Deft Digits - Discover a Guitarist Series.
Practice monster, and all around cool guy, Joe Walker started a great series in 2011 called "Discover a Guitarist". Guest writers share their love for their favorite guitar players. I had the pleasure to write about one of my favorites, Prince. Check it out!
Good Luck in 2012!
There you have it. Hope you have a great year!
