Welcome 2010 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. Instrumental guitar music could be considered underground by the mainstream music press, but it's an underground with a devoted and enthusiastic fan base. To do our part to serve that fan base, we've added 8 releases to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by Gerald Gradwohl Trio, Matt Kroll, Eric Roberts, Tommy Ermolli, Simone Fiorletta, Salvatore Russo, Toby Knapp and Glenn Cannon. You can now listen to and order 1923 instrumental releases by 1200 different artists.

I like to compose instinctively. First of all, I imagine a theme to follow up, as if I was writing a story, using my guitar instead of a pen, and from that point on, it`s all about improvisation.

Most of the songs were the result of me sitting by myself in my living room and fiddling around with the bass guitar, completely directionless - which is the setting I find most conducive to songwriting.
