Another excellent roster of guest columnists have come forward in August; many of these writers have penned as many as ten or fifteen columns for Guitar Nine over the years. There are nine altogether - eight returning columnists and first-time columnist. First off is Mike Campese, G.I.T. graduate and instructor, with "The Modes, Part 3: Modal Progressions". German guitarist Martin Behr returns with his article "Concepts For Playing "Outside": Part 3". Classical virtuoso Jamey Andreas also returns with his article "Moving In The Direction Of Skill". Joining us for the first time is fingerstyle guitarist Tom Yoder with his contribution, "Amazing Arpeggios". Acoustic guitarist Steve Pappas has another arrangement for us, "Amazing Grace (2nd Variation)". Indie marketing and promotions expert Tim Sweeney has contributed an article entitled "Invest In Yourself Before Asking Others To Invest In You". We welcome back guitarist Chris Juergensen, with his column "The Shapes Of Things To Come". Canadian guitarist David Martone returns with "Zone Recording: E-Mail Recordings". Finally, music industry guru Christopher Knab returns with "Why Most Demo Recordings Are Rejected".
August's updates include a brand new interview with Brazilian guitarist Miguel Mega.
