This is the 68th edition for which I have been editor, with all of the publications since spring 2005 having been the result of a very successful partnership with the contract publishing team at Future. In particular, my thanks go to my consultant editor Neil Crossley, who has worked tirelessly on the editorial content and helped to make the product such a hit with working musicians across the UK.
