Quality Follow-Up Albums Making Waves
Guitarists Showing That Experience Really Does Matter

Welcome to the February edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. This time around you'll find a number of albums just released by artists who are quite familiar with the recording studio. They pour all of their experience and energy into their recordings - and it shows. The debut records this time are also quite impressive. We've just added a total of 22 new releases to the site, including instrumental CDs by Theodore Ziras, Holding Pattern, Keith Andrew, Robert R. Rodrigo, Nick Kellie Band, Canvas Solaris, Morglbl, Sean Malone, Vega, Dan Sistos, Marcelo Aedo, Joel Hoekstra, Todd Grubbs, Curtis, Gerald Gradwohl, Mike Miller, The Jeff Beck Tribute, Ahmad Mansour, Be-Bop Guitars, Terri England, Linstead/Gunn and The Led Zeppelin Salute. You can now listen to and order 1891 instrumental releases by 1114 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).
