Welcome to the June anniversary edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine. In June of 1996 we launched this web site and online magazine, and after twenty-three great years, Guitar Nine has become well known for providing a wide variety of free instructional material, news, and information. Music theory, arpeggio sequences, and ear training just scratch the surface on the content found in this issue. In total, four guest columnists have submitted six original columns on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. After working through the information and lessons, please sample some excellent music released by the over 1400 musicians we've worked with over the past 23 years! Interestingly, we've now published over 220 artist interviews, while over 210 musicians and industry experts have written close to 1200 guest columns for this site since 1996.
