New Mr. Fastfinger EP – Stringweaver. 4 songs. It’s a deluxe 18 minutes mini album adventure. The EP has little bit similar vibe as “The Way of the Exploding Guitar”, in fact the opening song “Awaki-Waki” was originally planned for the debut album. Strong guitar music!

Most of the guitars are already recorded, bass will be next. Drum session set to the middle of Februray.
The EP is an extended soundtrack to a special game Mr. Fastfinger will be featuring soon. Soon more about this cool game thing, once we can announch it offically. This bunch of songs has a glorious good wibe!
Oh and this box isn’t the EP cover by the way;) But the color will likely be in a great role in the cover. I feel positively orange about the music.
We’re so proud to announch our second Jam Track Central package. This time it’s very special. 5 new songs / jams were composed for the package.

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!
