New Columns

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.
