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

Welcome to the October edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. Guitar Nine once again celebrates Instrumental Guitar Month this October, a great time to remember, support, discover, promote, and celebrate the many practitioners of this near-underground musical sub-genre. A reminder: many of our best sellers are in their final CD pressings, as 3-4 CDs join the out-of-print list each week. We've got very limited stock on some of these soon-to-be collectors items. Check our price list for current availability. Also, be sure to check out our new Twitter feed for even more news and information.
