Guitar Nine's February-March Edition - Monday, February 1, 2021 - 06:39 AM

The February-March edition is now online!

This edition's guest columnists are writing on topics such as the finger independence, reading music and melodic phrasing. We've got seven contributed articles altogether - five written by past contributing columnists and one written by a new contributor.

Mike Campese is back with his column entitled "Picking Exercises To Melodic Phrases". James Rosocha also returns and edifies with his new lesson "The IIm7b5-V7b9-Im Progression". Super prolific columnist and guitarist Tommaso Zillio contributes a triple shot of columnar expresso: "Is It Important To Know How To Read Music As A Guitar Player?", "Improving Finger Independence On The Guitar", and "Too Old To Learn Guitar Or Music Theory?". Kevin M. Buck is back with his column, "How To Arrange, Play, And Record Classical Music For The Electric Guitar". Guitarist Dan Peeke joins us for the first time, contributing "15 Easy Guitar Solos To Learn". Finally, returning with another "Influences" column is Dan McAvinchey with "Influences: Edward Van Halen".

Also, please reread and enjoy a classic column from the Guitar Nine archives, Dan McAvinchey's "Confidence - Build It, and They Will Come".

Our new series is entitled "Guitar Nine Focus", which gathers excellent columns written within a chosen area of focus. This time, the spotlight is on chords.
