Vol. 9, No. 2: August-September 2004
Hot Summer, Hotter Music
Beat The Heat With Cool New Music Available Now

Welcome to the August edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. Hot, humid summers are the rule here in North Carolina, but thanks to a great invention called the 'air conditioner', we've been working as hard as ever. From the headline, you'll notice that music is one of the few things in life that can be both 'hot' and 'cool' at the same time. Fans of instrumental guitar music have a lot to listen to this summer; we've completed 40 new additions to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by Autschbach Trio, WenLin, Cheng Zhen, GuitarChina.com, Papamichael World Group, Super String Theory, Frank Gambale, Behzad, Hittar Cuesta, Sean Baker Orchestra, Lachlan Horne, Zenfin, Allan Holdsworth, J.A.M. Authority, Randy Ellefson, Colaiuta/Ford/Haslip, Bill Hart Project, Dave Hill, Novak & Haar, Errorhead, Jeff Urso, Andy Timmons, Ben Trexel, Bon, Richard Robinson, Larry Coryell, Mattias IA Eklundh, Kenny Kilgore, Russo/Stravato, Taz Taylor, Kevin Barbour, Craig Chaquico, Ottmar Liebert, Gordian Knot, Rick Mals, Visual Cliff and Woodenhead. You can now listen to and order 1459 instrumental releases by 831 different artists. Visit the Instrumental Guitar Showcase to browse and listen to all of these dynamic recordings, or check out our recommendations page. If you've released an instrumental project, get all the details about merchandising through Guitar Nine, and decide if it's right for your music (if you've released a guitar-oriented CD with vocals, click here).
