Vol. 23, No. 5: February-March 2019
New Year! 7 Guest Columns and 2 New Interviews
Vlad De Briansky, Bobby Kittleberger and Paul Verschuur Contribute Their Expertise

Welcome to the February mid-winter edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. Super-cold temperatures across the USA are not diminishing our efforts to help you with your playing technique and musical inspiration. Altered scles, vibrato, and music education are just a few of the subjects covered in the first issue of 2019 - along with two new artist interviews (flamenco/metal duo Seis Cuerdas, and UK guitarist Stus Rollins). In total, five guest columnists have submitted seven original articles on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. In addition to digesting and mastering the information presented, please sample some great music released by the over 1400 musicians we've worked with over the past 21 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.
