The end of the year is approaching and I’m about to enjoy a well-earned Christmas break with my family.
Before packing the Christmas gifts to offer I’ve been reviewing some of the past year’s guitar information and thinking about what to discuss next year. It’s been fun and I’ve re-discovered plenty of interesting ideas.
I’ve picked one favourite idea from each month on the blog to share with you here. In the meantime, I wish you all a very happy Christmas.
