ROCKtober Is Instrumental Guitar Month
Tenth Annual Tribute To Instrumental Guitarists And Bands Worldwide

Welcome to the October edition of the Guitar Nine on-line magazine, and we're celebrating the tenth annual Instrumental Guitar Month, a great time to remember, support, discover, promote, and celebrate the many practitioners of this near-underground musical sub-genre. Tell a friend, open a seasonal beverage and enjoy some great music! Promotion, 7-string guitar and shred techniques are just three of the subjects found in this issue, giving guitarists more ideas for growth and improvement. In total, seven new featured articles have been submitted on a range of musical topics of interest to practicing musicians. To date, over 190 musicians have written guest columns for this site since 1997.
