Guitar Nine's April-May Edition - Sunday, April 1, 2018 - 02:07 PM

The April-May edition is now online!

This edition's guest columnists are writing on topics such as mental practicing, songwriting myths, lyric writing, CAGED, and scale shapes. We've got seven contributed articles altogether - one written by a columnist new to Guitar Nine (Just Rijna).

Simon Candy is back with his picking column "Play Thousands Of Songs With The Clawhammer Fingerpicking Pattern". Mike Campese also returns with a technique article entitled "Triad Arpeggios". Roland Nipp returns after a hiatus with his contribution "Mental Practice - The Art of Practicing Guitar Without a Guitar". Guitarist Tommaso Zillio offers up two articles, "Getting Out Of The Guitar CAGED System Part 6: Lead Harmonies" and "How To Simplify Your Lyric Writing For The Better". Joining us for the first time is Dutch guitarist Just Rijna with "Three Songwriting Myths that Will Stifle Your Creativity". Finally, bassist James Rosocha returns with his article "Seeing Shapes and Patterns".

Our new retrospective series is entitled "Guitar Nine's Attic", which will take a look back at nostalgia, artifacts, promos, photos, and other items from our 21 year history. Our second installment is a focus on Guitar Nine magnet promos given away with orders from 2001 to 2012.

No new interviews in April. Last issue featured Sam Russell, James Rosocha and In Dreams of Reality.
