Welcome to the April edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. While a horrific contagion sweeps across the world, music training and instruction has, out of necessity, gone 100% remote. We've always pushed online learning, so in the words of one of our columnists, "...it is important to take advantage of the time and challenge yourself to get to the next level. " Well said. New minor scales, ear training, and intonation are just a few of the subjects covered in the second issue of 2020. In total, three guest columnists have submitted six original articles on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing guitarists, bassists and musicians. In addition to reading and mastering the information presented, please sample some great music released by the over 1400 musicians we've worked with over the past 22 years! To date, we've now published over 220 artist interviews, while over 210 musicians and industry experts have written nearly 1200 guest columns for this site since 1996.
