Expressive Modes - Mr. Fastfinger - Jam Track Central

I was recently requested to do a Jam package for Jam Track Central. It was obviously a great honour for me.

Re: Mr. Fastfinger - Perfect guitar instrumental album

Hi guys, An update on the progress of the album. The release of the album is delayed a little bit. I rather do the production in piece and make sure everything is like I want it, instead of rushing some crap out. Current release schedule is in january / february 2012. We've started to work on the so...

Re: Mr. Fastfinger - Perfect guitar instrumental album

Thank you guys! Bryceybhoy: Would be interesting to hear your thoughts on the album once you have had the chance to digest it. Thanks in advance! You'll find that the focus is on compositions and the solos are kept quite tight. For me the only guitarist who's endless guitar solos I can listen to is ...

Re: Mr. Fastfinger - Perfect guitar instrumental album

Haha, thanks guys! I believe all people can have something to give each other. I'm thankful for your comments. Can relate to Rai's comments on being bored of instrumental guitar music. I took a pause on listening to guitar instrumentals in 1998 or something. This pause lasted for many years. But the...

Re: Mr. Fastfinger - Perfect guitar instrumental album

Excellent. Rai, I totally love how you put it "Play everything like it's your last note, and your life depends on it"! There needs to be something new and surprising, with each song on the album and within each song. If you hear the first song and you can guess what happens during the rest of the al...

Thanks! I've recieved feedback from musicans of all kinds. It's been very postive. I got me a Evo pass from Mikey. To me it was scary to meet Steve, especially after I knew he had seen Fastfinger. But Vai liked my creation. He told me that Satriani had just e-mailed him about the site the same day w...
