      There should be a Best Modes Lesson on his own given how many have we had this year. It was out of control.
      I don't recall a single one of them being worth more than a 2/10, given that they were all bloody wrong.
      Best troll award goes to Ballbag TimLarkin?
      There's also john_kimble and his countless eyeliner jokes on Green Day articles...
      lol i forgot about him i guess he died...well Pol-Pot-Smoker is also another.
      Don't remember john_kimble, but I'm sure Samhell was just one of those "DAVE FOR EVERYTHING" guys haha...Pot-Pot Smoker still doesn't hold up to TimLarkin for me though, I mean the dude got his own nickname!
      I'm not on the above list, but I'm proud to be ranked #277 out of all users for contributions, and #12 for news reports. I hope that you Russians enjoy lots of Vodka over Christmas. Cheers, UG.
      Has anybody heard at least one song by the artist Washya? The second contributor seems to be contributing songs that noone has heard of...
      This contributor has 655 tabs on but 645 of these are Washya tabs. I don't think there is any release by this 'artist'.
      thanks thanks thanks a ****ing lot, i'm so flattered to be in number 1. Too bad this is the least numbers of tabs I submitted because of my business to office work stuff. Thanks to the people who view my tabs because I appreciate it. You can share my tabs to your friends for free.
      A hearty thanks to all contributor of lessons. I try to learn as much as possible and I get a lot out of this site!
      btw millarso, ive been glad on you for giving some insight on how to write reviews. you def know how to write a well, constructed review yourself. for the metalcore community, you def are the one to look for.
