ROCKtober Is Instrumental Guitar Month

Thirteenth Annual Tribute To Instrumental Guitarists And Bands Worldwide

imgelcome to the October edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine, and we're celebrating the 13th annual Instrumental Guitar Month, a great time to remember, support, discover, promote, and celebrate the many practitioners of this near-underground musical sub-genre. Tell a friend, open a seasonal beverage and enjoy some great music! Fingerpicking techniques, songwriting and the harmonic minor scale are just three of the subjects found in this issue, giving guitarists more ideas for growth and improvement. In total, six new featured articles have been published on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. After working through the information and lessons, please sample some great music released by over 1000 musicians we've worked with over the past 21 years! Of note, we've published over 220 artist interviews, while over 210 musicians and industry experts have written close to 1100 guest columns for this site since 1996.   More Info   Español
