One of the best things about Ultimate Guitar is that we have the biggest and most active guitar community in the world. And under every news article, we have a riot reading their comments which can be everything from funny and informative all the way to unsettling. Yeah, it can be a mixed bag. But we wouldn't change you for the world.
Here's the most up-voted comments of the year, and every one of their authors will win ad-free access to the site for one year. Keep your comments coming on every post you read, because they really make us laugh and you could appear in front of millions of visitors in a thread like this.
