Hey there,

It is a great honour for me to present Mats Hedberg - Swedish guitarist who lives in Italy!

Mats has done an impressive amount sessions, recordings and instructional material.

He also has chops from hell and I dare not categorise him into a specific genre - so I will let you dive in his biography below instead. And be sure to check out his music - I am very inspired and impressed of what I have heard from him - so I will for sure order some of his stuff! smile.gif

Mats I hope you find your way into the forum - welcome to GMC! biggrin.gif
