New Progressive Band Forges Original Sound
Welcome to the December holiday edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. Instrumental guitar music is clearly considered underground by the mainstream music press, but it's an underground with a rabid and enthusiastic fan base. To do our part to serve that fan base, we've added 23 releases to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by Gyula Schreiber, Bryan Beller, Brandon Campbell, Aaron Lewis, Shredding Across The World, John B., Revangel, Dojo, Jimmy Williams, Andre Tonelli, Kosta Vreto, Uthull, Freddie Fox, Lucas Fagundes, Bruce Bouillet, Doug Johns, Michael Angelo, Bluestone Company, Kevin Ferguson, Jimmy Herring, Guitar Idol 2008, Razl and Allen Hinds. You can now listen to and order 2005 instrumental releases by 1201 different artists.
I will be back doing more instructional videos in January with Joe Satriani. I can`t tell you how humbling it is to work with one of your mentors. Simply unbelievable!
We often cannot pinpoint exactly what it is we like about a certain piece of instrumental music, but the music nonetheless resonates within us on a deep, personal level.
I tend to discover guitarists that have been there for a long time and have many records, but hadn`t catch my attention until recently, like Derek Trucks or Alex Machacek.
