New Columns

We have one of the best groups of guest columnists we've ever put together for June, our anniversary month. There are twelve altogether - and every one is a returning columnist. Just like the summer movie lineup at your local cinema, we've got a lot of sequels. First off is Mike Campese, G.I.T. graduate and instructor, with "The Modes, Part 2". German guitarist Martin Behr returns with his article "Concepts For Playing "Outside": Part 2". Classical virtuoso Jamey Andreas also returns with his article "Double Trouble". Noted classical guitarist Muriel Anderson has contributed "Connecting With Music, Connecting With Your Guitar". Acoustic guitarist Steve Pappas has another arrangement for us, "Amazing Grace (1st Variation)". Chicago area guitarist Tom Hess has written his column entitled "Musical Frustration ". Indie marketing and promotions expert Tim Sweeney has contributed an article entitled "Is Your Music 'Good Enough?'". Retuning with more technical tips is guitarist Sean Mercer with his column "Making Sequences Work For You". We welcome back guitarist Chris Juergensen, with his column "Harmonizing Scales". Canadian guitarist David Martone returns with "Zone Recording: Don't Hum In My Studio!". Australian guitarist Chris Brooks also returns with his article "Modal Pentatonics Part 2". Finally, music industry guru Christopher Knab returns with "Guerilla Music Marketing Suggestions".
