Guitar Nine Celebrates Latest Milestone With Eight New Features

Welcome to the June anniversary edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine. June of 1996 marked our entry into cyberspace, and after twenty-two great years, Guitar Nine has become well known for providing a wide variety of free instructional material, news and information. Writing music, mining minor scales, and music promotion are just a small sampling of the subjects found in this issue. In total, seven guest columnists have submitted eight original articles 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 22 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.
