When You Decide To Not Be Polite & Troll People Back.

comments youtube.jpg

There are lots of highly incompetent “men” out there who really can’t play their instrument for shit. (Nor govern or inspire, mind you). There are also plenty of musicians regardless of gender who fall prey to “group think,” or maybe they just don’t have the “explorer” gene. Whenever I do my homework when it comes to how people handle their electric guitar in “classical” situations and whenever I see comments like the one above it serves as a reminder of how lucky women are to have a seat at the table and how dull show biz and the rest of the creative industries would be if this wasn’t the case…

Innovation and courage to introduce new concepts and ideas should always be encouraged. The creative professions will otherwise grow stale and boring.

My classical album is still in the charts ๐Ÿ™‚ This is very cool and fun to see!

NEW song & video to be released TODAY!

Standard

Just a quick note to the people who have subscribed to my blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ A new music video will be released today onย My YouTube ๐Ÿ˜‰

The song was first written back in 2007, inspired by John Dickie’s book about Cosa Nostra.

I made a new arrangement and re-recorded the song last year to include it as a bonus track ย on myย second albumย which was released in April this year ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope that you guys will enjoy it and help me share it!!! \m/ โค \m/ โค \m/

I LOVE to play guitar.

Yes it might not come as a mega-surprise, but seriously, I really love what I do. Profoundly.

Just finished my playing routine, going thru all the tracks from my classical album and also some of my riffs. All of those riffs feel easy to play in comparison to the violin virtuoso material, funny enough.

Once upon a time these songs represented my technical limit, which I now find a bit funny. I mean, technicality aside I still like those melodies of mine, but it is certainly not challenging to play those songs anymore.

I’ve now embarked on a brand new virtuoso piece, I just couldn’t help it.

I won’t tell anyone what sort of ludicrous project I’ve embarked on now, but I can reveal that it is again quite unique.

The feeling of your fingers flying over the fretboard, knowing exactly where they are supposed to land next, always one step ahead, ย combined with the memory used to its fullest force, is literally priceless.

If you cannot find joy in the art of just playing and mastering your instrument you are seriously doing something wrong.

I know. That I Love.

That I LOVE. What I do.

Let me repeat.

I adore what I do.

Ever since I came back from Norway I’ve been busy finishing my first metal album \m/

I’ve had my first “charting success” with my classical music so I don’t know what to expect with my metal music, but I hope it will be well-received sales-wise. I’ve experienced a lot of awesome stuff with my metal, but it never officially charted and my first song to really go viral, (like past the 100k mark on YouTube) was my version of the violin piece “Zigeunerweisen”, that vid was spreading like a disease online. A piece of classical music written for violin virtuosos never before played on the guitar! So it will be interesting to see what will happened when we release the first video for my metal record! My metal music has always been selling (even though it hasn’t officially charted) and my ย “limited-edition” physical metal Demo’s have been selling this year too, so I have my fingers crossed for another charting album, because it would just feel so awesome and so victorious to see my original music reaching an Amazon-charting position + that I’m an independent artist, so buy my art folks! You can buy it here ๐Ÿ˜› mwha-haย My Store!!!!

Track-Track-Tra-ack…

What you see here is part of what I worked on yesterday, which was tracking 4 takes ( no punch in btw ) all the way through making it sound like one #guitar with the @audixmics #i5. Whenever there was something I didn't like in the take, I did it all over again. I figured it was wise to break it in the middle to tune, as the song is pretty heavy on the low B and this string can easily go out of tune especially when you are tracking with a tremolo system. The little portions of sound you see are chords played an octave higher in the choruses to make it bigger sounding & some harmonies in the middle eight section. Today I changed the position of the amp entirely to track 4 other type of takes with 3 mics capturing completely different parts of the amp. Thats the pile you see there. You can just imagine the amount of tracks, also I haven't named things correctly yet ๐Ÿ˜› When I'm done tracking with the good old tube amp, I'll track another set of guitars, this time with plugins so that there will be a wide range of options for tone ๐Ÿ˜ฏ #presonus #presonusstudioone #studioone #tracking #guitartracking #trackingguitar #guitar #guitarist #recording
