Tunesday Volume 2 - Winners Announced and Answers Revealed

So the second volume of my new "Name That Tune" contest, Tunesday, is officially a wrap. Thanks to all who listened and participated. The concept was simple: I play 12 guitar riffs, and the person who names the most riffs correctly wins cool writing stuff. Volume 3 of Tunesday is set to go live within a week or so — so pay attention to the blog. As usual, winners get cool writing prizes.
