Guitar Nine's August-September Edition - Wednesday, August 1, 2018 - 07:09 AM

The August-September edition is now online!

This edition's guest columnists are writing on topics such as improvisation, album tracks, chord/melody playing and songwriting. We've got six contributed articles altogether - and all have been written by regular contributing.

Simon Candy is back with two acoustic guitar-oriented columns "Creating And Playing Chord/Melody Arrangements On Guitar - Part 1" and its follow-up, "Creating And Playing Chord/Melody Arrangements On Guitar - Part 2". Mike Campese also returns with an article inspired by his new album entitled "The Fire Within". Finally, guitarist Tommaso Zillio contributes three more columns, "Key Changes: One Technique That Will Make Or Break Your Composition", "Writing Songs That Don't Suck", and "Two Simple Ways That Will Improve Your Guitar Improvisation Game".

Enjoy a blast from the past with a classic column from the Guitar Nine archives, Dan McAvinchey's "Finishing The Job".

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 22 year history. Our fourth installment looks at the history and evolution of the Guitar Nine home page.

No new interviews in August. The February issue featured Sam Russell, James Rosocha and In Dreams of Reality.
