Instrumental Guitar Site Marks 21st Anniversary
Guitar Nine Celebrates 21 Years Online With Eight Features

Welcome to the June anniversary edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine. June of 1996 marked our entry into cyberspace, and after twenty-one great years, Guitar Nine has become well known for providing a wide variety of free instructional material, news and information. Open-string soloing, the CAGED system, and guitar tricks are just a few of the subjects found in this issue. In total, five guest columnists have submitted six articles on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. Two new interviews (with Adrian Weiss and David Caudle) are also featured. After working through the information and lessons, please sample some great music released by over 1000 musicians we've worked with over the past 21 years! Of note, we've published over 220 artist interviews, while over 210 musicians and industry experts have written close to 1100 guest columns for this site since 1996.
