imgelcome to the October edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine, and we're celebrating the 11th annual Instrumental Guitar Month, a great time to remember, support, discover, promote, and celebrate the many practitioners of this near-underground musical sub-genre.

In total, seven new featured articles have been submitted on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. Remarkably, over 200 musicians have written guest columns for this site since 1997.   More Info   Español
