Welcome 2012 With New Instrumental Music
A 31 Day Salute To Instrumental Guitarists And Bands Worldwide

Welcome to the December holiday edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. Instrumental guitar music is clearly considered underground by the mainstream music press, but it's an underground with a rabid and enthusiastic fan base. To do our part to serve that fan base, we've added 8 releases to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by the Renaud Louis-Servais Group, Tony CC, Gianluca Galli, The Vara-Tones, James Evans and Ben Kuzay. You can now listen to and order 1098 instrumental releases by 715 different artists.
