Mika is proud to enter Bendnote.com as a new artist. Last summer Mika shot some improvisations and lessons for new Bendnote.com. Here’s the first one now online: “Lydian Feeling”. When you pay the monthly fee you get to see the video lesson explaining the improvisation and full solo transcibtion. Bendnote is still quite new service, but they already got an amazing bunch of artists on board making the lessons: Christophe Godin, Mattias Eklundh, Gutherie Govan, Patrik Rondat, Jean Fontanille and more. Check out Bendnote here:

We’re proud to annouch a trilogy of supernatural amp demos and guitar lessons. This series for YouTube was done in cooperation with Hughes & Kettner. The three episodes are presenting 3 ways of using the Tubemeister amp, in Mr. Fastfinger way.
Series is published on Hughes & Kettner’s YouTube channel.
“Mr. Fastfinger’s “In Motion” is by far the most unique and captivating instrumental albums I have ever listened to.”
Colin Moriarty / SHREDAHOLIC
“Well, first of all, clear your schedule. Once you push play the only thing you’ll be able to do for the next 59 minutes is feel the groove! For me that means involuntary head and feet movement plus copious amounts of air-instrumentation.”
9/9 stars / Brendan Biryla / HOLLYWOOD METAL
“And again those contributions by famous guests are pleasant. But by no means essential. Because “In Motion” is strong as Hulk by Mr. Fastfinger’s very own rights. Without ever coming too close to mere fretboard freakiing, the album tells the story of a spiritual journey – almost without using words. In the end, Sensei has to confront his inner demons. We only give away this much: this can’t be achieved without some virtuoso guitar playing.”
(quote translated from german to english by K. Reckert) Klaus Reckert / GAESTELISTE.DE
“Here is a disk that is all about the praising of the infinite number of possible sonic patterns and tendencies you have never heard so far.”
GyZ / NOISE SHAFT
