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 favorite beverage and enjoy some great music! In this spirit, we've added another 8 new releases and reissues to the site, including instrumental CDs by Hedras Ramos, Adrian Weiss, Jake Clayton, Elias Viljanen, Niels Vejlyt, Alex Martinho and Jose De Castro. You can now listen to and order 1729 instrumental releases by 1117 different artists.
