Welcome 2005 With New Guitar Music
Guitarists From All Over The World Join Forces

Welcome to the December holiday edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine.

To do our part to serve that fan base, we've added 37 releases to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by Ted Reece, Mick Neil, Rich Roger, Shawn Persinger Is Prester John, Tobias Hurwitz, Craig Chaquico, International Guitar Night, Johnny Hiland, Hideous Sun Demons, Warmen, Ioannis Anastassakis, Mike Dimareli - Artical, Carlos Soto, Keith Miller, Daniele Liverani, Riptyde, Armik, Vernon Neilly & G-Fire, Nick Borho, Big Bang Method, Dr. Maybe, Il-Min Choi, Derek Sherinian, Steve Booke, Deep Forest, Bill Perry, Sterling Koch, Joe Gamble, Loren Middleton, Daikaiju, Heavy Surf, Bill Mize, Mortimer Nelson and Peter Xifaras. You can now listen to and order 1543 instrumental releases by 872 different artists.

Composition really separates an artist from someone who is soley a musician, in my opinion. If I am to be viewed in any way, I would like it to be as a composer.
