Guitar Nine's February-March Edition - Saturday, February 1, 2014 - 8:04 PM

The February-March edition is now online!

This edition's guest columnists are featuring rhythm and lead guitar writing tips, composing without an instrument, modal ideas, and copyrighting pointers directly to your web browser. We've got seven fresh columns altogether - all written by by returning columnists.

Mike Campese delivers a follow-up to last edition's songwriting column entitled "Composing Without Your Guitar, Part 2". Tom Hess returns with another double shot of columnar expresso with "How To Play Awesome Rhythm Guitar Riffs" followed by the B-side of "How To Write Great Guitar Solos". Independent music consultant Chris Knab edifies with "Copyright and Songwriting Basics". Guitarist Jean-Pierre Zammit is back with his article "Major Modes Introduction". Guitarist Tommaso Zillio gets bluesy this time with "Advanced Blues Rhythm Guitar Made Easy". Finally, Tim Sweeney adds timeless advice appropriate to any holiday season on "Do The Opposite During The Holiday".

The February update includes a new interview with guitarist Mika Tyyska of the band Mr. Fastfinger.
