Been playing guitar since: 1979
I took classical piano lessons and flute lessons at 7 years old, and bought my first guitar Cobra SG for 200 kronor started playing guitar at 12 years and started my own group at 13.
Playing and Influences
My early influences was Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Tina Turner and then Al Dimeola, J.S.bach, Paganini, Zappa, Deep Purple, Cornelis Wreesvijk, Van halen, Stravinskij, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lars Erik Larsson, Jeff Beck, Allan Holdsworth and loads of other incredible musicians!
I hope to share something with my playing, hoping to give something to people, to trasmit some feelings, basically, I only try to do my best as a musician.
I strive to play for the song and to create some kind of melody, and not just technical stuff.
GMC is a very nice place and everybody is very kind and professional! It's a great idea that Kristofer has come up with!
