This edition's guest columnists are writing on topics such as the altered scale, blue notes, guitar uniqueness and learning theory. We've got six contributed articles altogether - all have been written by regular contributing columnists.
Mike Campese is back with a scale focused column entitled "The Altered Scale". James Rosocha rejoins us with his bass-oriented column "Plugging In The Blue Note". Consordini.com blogger Austin Consordini has contributed his guitar overview called "Different Types of Guitars – Meeting The Extended Family". Finally, guitarist Tommaso Zillio contributes three more articles, "Don't Get CAGED Part 7: Caged And Pentatonic Are Not The Same Thing", "A Sure-Fire Way For Beginners Musicians To Learn Theory" and "Using What Makes Your Guitar Unique To Your Advantage".
Enjoy a blast from the past with a classic column from the Guitar Nine archives, Dan McAvinchey's "Finding The Perfect Partner".
Our retrospective series is entitled "Guitar Nine's Attic", which will take a look at the Guitar Nine organization's Guitarsenal (guitar arsenal) of six-strings (and a bass) from 1980 through 2012.
No new interviews in December. The February issue featured Sam Russell, James Rosocha and In Dreams of Reality.
