Summer.

It’s so nice when the weather is good and the sun actually provides warmth πŸ˜›

Seems to me like the sun is just for show in these parts πŸ˜€

Today I’ve been practising for the fundraising concert I’m doing for one of the local churches.

I’m a bit overwhelmed by my 3rd album, since there is so much happening musically in there. I’ve now decided to add even more to it, and I’ve also had some new ideas with more parts that I want to add on things I’ve already recorded…

(You can support what I’m doing here: My Patreon)…

Creativity and having lots of ideas can be very overwhelming at times.

I have lots of ideas for illustrated books as well, there’s no end…

It is interesting how someone like Jordan B.Peterson is running around the world preaching to people that they need to clean up their rooms and react to things properly, I wonder what his take on creativity would be?

Creative individuals write and create when they are upset, which means that they don’t really sort out the source of what makes them upset a lot of times. Creatives are also notorious for never cleaning their room or atelier as well πŸ˜›

Apparently you should clean up your room before you can save the world or create something πŸ˜›

Reminds me of this guitar expert I tried to take lessons from ages ago who claimed that: “you can only create if you know all the theory and techniques out there;” which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life, not to forget this one:”If someone tells you what to create, then you’ll be super productive.” Needless to say, we didn’t see eye to eye….Creativity should never be boxed in or know limitations, unless you are working on something that is “made to order” or whatever, creativity is like water, it is all over the place, and if it is dammed up it will just explode at one point or the other. You might experience tsunamis of creativity. I normally work on multiple songs simultaneously in different genres…

Anyway….

Here are some pictures of me doing nothing…..

I’m guessing this is awesome, since blogging about nothing makes you cool.

Here I Am, On BBC3!

πŸ˜€ Hey to all of my subscribers here on my blog! Today my interview over at the BBC was aired, listen to itΒ right here :):):):)

You can hear me shred variation 1 from Paganini’s Caprice 24 live, you’ll also hear me play something from my original heavy metal song “Thou.”

I’m particularly happy with how it turned out as I hadΒ a very long break Β from playing right before the interview, so it was good to hear that I delivered even though I felt, at the time, that my form wasn’t optimal :):):):) I guess I know how to play πŸ˜›

This is the first time I’ve performed anything live on National British Radio πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot to BBC3 & Tom Service! I think this is really cool :):):):):)

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, Β 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.

Find that thing that makes you ridiculously happy.

Seriously…I took a break today from my metal-album in the works to re-visit “Zigeunerweisen” & “Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso” and O-M-G do I love this material.

It’s so cool to be able to play this kinda stuff it’s really hard to describe it.It makes me so happy whenever I play this, it’s so intriguing and it makes me so happy when I get it right. I don’t think anything else can compare.

I so wanna do more live gigs with this kinda stuff. It is so much cooler to do the classical guitar meets electric guitar concept, waaaaay cooler than the metal πŸ˜› ha-ha

This is so fucking cool.

This is even cooler. Like, this is my favourite piece to play. I love this so much!

Fun,fun,fun

check out the tango….hmmm…that’s me folks \m/

love love love love love love love love love love this!!!!!!
