Welcome to the June edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine.

To celebrate, we've added 21 new releases to the site, including instrumental CDs by Chris Bergson, Metal Mike Chlasciak, Curtis, Torben Enevoldsen, Kada, Denis Taaffe, Dennis Harold Lotka, Pat Thomi, David T. Chastain, Paul Nelson, Chaz DePaolo & Bleu Sketch, Sergio Zurawski, Pascal Allaigre, Alternate Realities, Artland, Theodore Ziras, Jill Yan, Anomaly, and Steve Trovato. You can now listen to and order 587 instrumental releases by 365 different artists. Visit the Instrumental Guitar Showcase to browse and listen to all of these dynamic recordings, or check out our recommendations page.

I think that for these great guitar magazines the most important thing is to sell copies, so they are "compelled" to put on covers and dedicate as much space as they can to the most famous guitarists -- in fact, there are always the same names featured! It would be cool to some day see a cover with all the undiscovered ones!
