ROCKtober Is Instrumental Guitar Month
A 31 Day Salute To Instrumental Guitarists And Bands Worldwide

Welcome to the October edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. Guitar Nine has declared October to be Instrumental Guitar Month, a great time to remember, support, discover, promote, and celebrate the many practitioners of this near-underground musical sub-genre. Tell a friend, open a beverage and enjoy some great music! In this spirit, we've added another 19 new releases and reissues to the site, including instrumental CDs by Todd Ferguson, Martin Cilia, Alejandro Silva, Marc Rizzo, Terry 'Buffalo' Ware, Tony Burcel, Simone Fiorletta, Tobias Hurwitz, Norman K. Anderson, Illuminoids, Drew Davidsen, Marco Iacobini, DHL, Kevin Ferguson, Gambale/Donati/Fierabracci, Seree Lee, Pascal Allaigre, Kiko Loureiro and Jimmy Mac. You can now listen to and order 2119 instrumental releases by 1193 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).
