One Switch Shred Show



Online shredding is now much easier for some of the more disabled people in the world. Using the small free downloadable utility, 4Noah Shred, it is possible to use the Left Mouse Click alone to play. This utilty works perfectly with “The mountain of the Tapping Dwarves”. Click and shred!

Thanks to Barrie Ellis and One Switch for making this happen. Very Good!

Mr. Fastfinger quest at Freak Guitar Camp

Mr. Fastfinger had a great, great honour to do a surprise Guitar Shred Show in Sweden last week. Yes, it was the famous Freak Guitar Camp in Gothenburg forests, conducted by the Swedish guru, Mattias IA Eklundh. Mr. Fastfinger and Mika did their duo show for the crowd of almost 30 freak students. As the encore the audience was treated by a freak shred jamming of the trio: Mika – Mattias – Fastfinger. Ugggh yeah, we did respect that moment!

Mika Tyyskä - Mattias Eklundh - Mr. Fastfinger

The Freak Guitar Camp is a paradise for any ambitious guitarist. The lessons by Mattias and Christian Alsing, the coffee and food, the sauna and the lake, and the company of all the students: it’s all Tip Top! Mr. Fastfinger highly recommends this camp for you!

Some good Japan stuff

We had excellent time in Tokyo with Mr.Fastfinger, doing Switchblade demos. Thanks to all Hughes & Kettner and Pearl people: Katajikenai! Clearly one of the best trips ever, all smile and joy. Here’s something cool about our excellent trip to Japan in June: Hughes & Kettner’s news

When doing a Switchblade demo I had an excellent change to test out a cool new tool from TC Electronic. It was no surprise: Nova System was perfect for the job. Very cool, it’s like the baby brother of G-System! Interview at TC Electronic Japan

Some more cool photos taken by my good friend Ayato Yoshioka can be found in the MySpace image gallery

It’s very true. Mr. Fastfinger’s solo album is under production. You can bet there will be plenty of hard rocking guitars and exploding solos on this CD. The target is to get the album out late 2008 / early 2009.
