Vol. 16, No. 2: August-September 2011
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 in spite of that, 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 20 new additions to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by Jarle H. Olsen, Demi Show, Rob Carlton, Next Order, Christian Muenzner, Dean Cascione, Casey Harshbarger, Al Marconi, Jake Dreyer, Strings 24, Yuji Fukuda, Danny John Trio, Randy Pevler, Chris Taylor, Wayne Krantz, Abstract Logix Live, Dolcetti, TevorX and David Pritchard. You can now listen to and order 1730 instrumental releases by 1116 different artists.

Phrasing is what makes the big difference between just mindless noodling and a great guitar solo in my opinion. Think more about which notes you play and when you play them.
