Workshop tour in Germany / MMS

Der finnische Ausnahmegitarrist Mika Tyyskä wurde bekannt durch seine Animationsfigur Mr. Fastfinger. Während der Cartoon-Gitarrist ausschließlich im Internet und auf Bildschirmen aktiv ist, kommt der “echte” Mr. Fastfinger nun für einige exklusive Workshops nach Deutschland. Als Gast der Modern Music School tourt der Saitenzauberer durch mehrere Städte. Der Eintritt ist frei.

Rockway guitar lessons

Mika is now teaching at Rockway, the finest finnish online music school. Very proud to be up there, this school is filled with high class material from the top teachers and musicians of Finland. Huh!
First lessons were just uploaded and there’s plenty of more to come. First lessons are focusing on one string playing approach, but in future lessons everything expands to full fretboard playing in a super clever way ;)

Mika opettaa nyt Rockwayssä. Jos Rockway on vielä vieras, kannatta ehdottomasti käydä tutustumassa täällä:

Mr. Fastfinger guests on Sauruxet-album

Sauruxet, finnish dinosaurs of heavy metal, have release an album called “Saurusplaneetta”. Mr. Fastfinger guest solos and does some special guitar effects on track “Voiton Huumaa”. The song does a special little tribute to a classic 80′s track where there’s some alien dialogue between a singer and wah-wah guitar. I respect this moment!
Music is perhaps targeted to the younger audiences, but huh-huh there’s some killer playing and material there to digest for us all!
