Guitar Nine Celebrates Three Years Online

Welcome to the June anniversary edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. We started this web site in June of 1996, so this represents our third anniversary, and we are celebrating with dozens of new instrumental guitar CD titles and a number of articles written by excellent guest columnists. Visit the Instrumental Guitar Showcase to browse and listen to all of these dynamic recordings, or check out our recommendations page. If you've released an instrumental project, get all the details about merchandising through Guitar Nine, and decide if it's right for your music (if you've released a guitar-oriented CD with vocals, click here).

But even with my success in Belgium, it was impossible to get any industry support/interest generated. It was then the time of Kurt Cobain and friends, people like Tony MacAlpine and Greg Howe weren`t having any luck, what hope was there for me? Releasing my own CD seemed like the only answer.
