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!
This year has been really great for our "Lessons" section, seems like you guys were on a roll – way to go in 2014!
