Mr. Fastfinger getting a new custom guitar

Wax on, just like Mr. Miagi! Mr. Fastfinger is helping polishing those guitar bodies at Ruokangas Guitars.

Mr. Fastfinger is getting a new custom guitar from master Juha Ruokangas. Can you guess the guitar color? We’ll reveal all details later, but can tell you we’re talking about an instrument so special and out of this world.
We’re capturing some “serious” making of -material from this project at Ruokangas Guitars for you. In the mean time, if you’re unfamiliar with the best guitar makers in the world, check out Ruokangas Guitars at ruokangas.com.

This is a dream coming true. I respect this moment!

Announching the new album title “Spirit Rising”


Happy new year 2015!
Here it is. The title to the upcoming Mr. Fastfinger album is “Spirit Rising”. The release date is still open. While some tunes are roughly mixed, there’s still few things to be recorded with some of the song. Some bass and some guitar to be done soon.
Year 2014 was quiet yer, so much work behind the scenes. So much things I haven’t been able to announch yet. Wait and see. 2015 is the 10 year anniversary of Mr. Fastfinger. Some good surprises on the way.
Hold on my friends!

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!

Mika Tyyskä: Mixolydian Shuffle. 20 Licks!

Mika’s new package for Jam Track Central has been released. 20 Licks in Mixolydian mode played in Shuffle feel!
You’ll learn some great fretboard shapes and a wide range of scary techniques too. There’s quite an emphasise on slide, hybrid picking and economy picking techniques, plus plenty of string skipping, double stops and arpeggios ideas. Over all it’s a great workshop for anybody to get deep with the swinging shuffle playing alongside nailing the Mixolydian.
