UG Top Contributors of 2013

See which contributions were the most read, discussed and (we hope) liked this year.

Ultimate Guitar

As 2013 comes to an end, it's time to celebrate our community's neverending passion for creating great tabs, lessons, column posts and reviews! First off, we'd like to thank everybody who's contributed to UG this or any of the past years. You guys really get the whole thing going and we truly appreciate your sincere efforts to share guitar passion and wisdom across the globe. Our editors work hard every day to help put your contributions out on UG, but sometimes we receive so many that it's impossible to process them all in time – if we ever kept you waiting, know that it was for a reason.

Before we start

It's very hard to make "best" picks from something that's so diverse and unique as your articles and tabs, but we did try. In the end, it's up to you anyways to decide what's worthy and what's not. Hit "Like" button, post your comments, share the news via Facebook or Twitter, otherwise have fun while we'll take care of providing you with new and interesting materials every day. So, let's start!

      Well written reviews are something UG should learn
      My biggest problems is for the "sound" section of the album reviews, they put the whole history of the band into that section instead of how the album actually sounds.
      I'd like to see a most top comments award. ...To bask in Narcissism.
      Yeah the 'medal' system is rubbish if you don't even get one SLAMMED into your profile or anything. Would also be good to see a list of all the best top comments of the year, some of them are genius.
      oh allright i didn't even now something like this existed and all of the sudden I see my name up there
      Holy Misc Computer Game Themes Batman! You sir, have done quite a lot of work in less than a year! That's pretty cool.
      This list is a farce! Not even one mention of the contributions that I bring to this dreadful website.
