New Columns

This edition's guest columnists are writing about slide guitar playing, chromatic lines, and setting up a practice schedule. We've got six contributed articles altogether - one written by a columnist new to Guitar Nine (Mark Woodburn).

Mike Campese also returns with a technique article entitled "Chromatic Riffs and Lines". Tom Hess is back with his contribution "Four Keys To Making An Effective Guitar Practice Schedule". Guitarist Tommaso Zillio educates and illuminates with two articles, "How To Transition From An Intermediate To An Advanced Guitar Player" and "Transforming An Idea Into A Song". Joining us for the first time is guitarist Mark Woodburn with "Seven Picking Styles Every New Guitarist Should Learn". Finally, acoustic guitar specialist Simon Candy returns with his introductory article "Learn The Technique Of Slide Guitar And Take Your Playing To A Whole New Level".

Our new retrospective series is entitled "Guitar Nine's Attic", which will take a look back at nostalgia, artifacts, promos, photos, and other items from our 21 year history. This time the subject is picks.
