Guitar Nine's February-March 2014 newsletter.
Welcome to the February edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine. Copyrights, writing solos and modes are just a few of the subjects found in this issue - a wide range of topics with something for everyone. In total, seven guest columnists have submitted fresh articles on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. In addition to the information presented, please enjoy sampling some great music released by over 1000 musicians we've worked with over the past 17 years! Of note, over 190 musicians (including many of the recording artists selling their music online) have written guest columns for this site since 1997.

Using the same guitar soloing approach as everyone else can only lead to one result: a guitar solo that has a very similar sound to nearly every other guitar solo out there.
