Happy Holidays; 6 New Columns You Must Unwrap
Take This Opportunity To Supercharge Your Guitar Playing

Welcome to the December holiday edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. We're closing out 2018 and welcoming in 2019 with a half-dozen new columns in this issue, as well as exciting ideas for the site in the coming year. We wish you all the best for the holiday season and hope you'll take this time to improve your playing and educate yourself about the business of music. In total, four guest columnists have submitted six excellent articles on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. After working through the information and lessons, please sample some great music released by the over 1400 musicians we've worked with over the past 21 years! To date, we've now published over 220 artist interviews, while over 210 musicians and industry experts have written nearly 1200 guest columns for this site since 1996.
