U.S.A. Swelters; Cool Music To The Rescue
Savvy CD Collectors Use Summer Months To Add Coveted Titles

Welcome to the August edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. As many parts of the U.S. endure record high temperatures, savvy CD collectors take the opportunity to pick up hard-to-acquire titles in the music business' typically slow season. To help build your collection of instrumental guitar music, we've added another 29 titles to the site, including instrumental CDs by Floating Stone, Michael Caputo, Animacorda, David Wright, Jeff Berlin, Enlightenment, Mike Campese, Mike Martin, Jeff Beasley, Richie Kotzen, Michael Hedges, Guitar Garden, Franck Ribiere, Daniel Palmqvist, Tony De Gruttola, Gabe Cummins, Delirious Tremor, Strunz/Farah, Armik, Isbin & Iep, Si Hayden, Plankton, Elewout De Raad Project, Greg Rapaport, Natural Born Player and Thorbjorn Englund. You can now listen to and order 1927 instrumental releases by 1096 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).
