Hey guys. First I would like to say thank you to all you who have supported me for the past 2 years as AaronsGuitarLessons.com has grown. Sadly to say, this week will be the last week for the website. Because the site is non-profit, a few music and publishing organizations like MENC, AMA, MPRCS (Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society) have been raising cases and copyright issues regarding the material I am teaching, and the songs that I give tutorials on. They deal with making profits on music teaching material that is taught in the United States. It’s hard for American sites to fight these cases because of our laws, unlike sites like Ultimate-Guitar.com which is based out of Russia- American laws do not apply. Later, I may try to start a new website based on this one which will have to retain a membership fee, but I’m not sure yet. It may take a few months to a year to get back online as well because I’m currently on a few tours, and my band starts recording the album soon. The currently Give-a-way drawing will still be held on April 5th, but the site will have to shut down soon after… please click here if you are concerned and would like to sign the petition!
