Mr. Fastfinger album III progressing

Mr. Fastfinger‘s album no. 3 is slowly getting together. All the songs are composed, the song order is getting clearer and clearer.
These are exciting times, been working with bunch of great musicians and friends: Thomas Törnroos, Lasse Rantanen, Kai Hahto (Nightwish, Wintersun etc…), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) …and then there’s some new friends onboard, yet to be revealed!
Most guitars are recorded. One drum and percussion session to do with Thomas. A lot of bass sessions to do.
So thankful of being able to do this. There’s are still some mountains, or hills to be climbed, but this is very enjoyable phase in the overall production. Proud of these songs and performances. Will be a great album I’m telling!

You can bet this album (and something way much more) is coming out in 2015. Will be the ten year anniversary year of Mr. Fastfinger!

The mode exploration.
I wanted to create a set of jams that are enjoyable to jam along. Nothing too difficult, but rather something that is inspirational for the leads in everypossible way. I also decided to focus on the major scale modes. You will find each track always focusing one main mode. But there’s always more than one mode applied in each jam. Master the modes, as Mr. Fastfinger would say here!

The guitar solos were played in Mr. Fastfinger style ofcourse. There’s plenty of melodies, cool licks, riffs, exposions, rhythmic playfulness, chase scenes, mystical feelings, emotions, fun and all sort of technical challenges for you to check out and study!

The package available at Jam Track Central:
