The Chordinero - New Guitar Capo

I just want to give you a look at this very cool guitar invention. It was given to me by the inventor who is a good friend of mine that also is a hobby guitarist.

The Chordinero is a fantastic tool to play open chords with standard tuning. In this video you can see how I can adjust the open note for every string individually. The possibilities are many. One thing I find very cool is that I can use an open tuning and still access my knowledge of the fretboard in the higher register.

10 Jazz Mandolin Licks and Techniques - New E-book

Here´s a short demo of the new e-book: 10 Jazz Mandolin Licks and Techniques. The book is a collection of mandolin licks and techniques that capture some characteristics of jazz music. Each variation is described in text and also written with standard notation and mandolin tablature (TAB). In the demo video I´m using the techniques over the chord changes for jazz standard "All of Me".

Happy New Year!

I hope you and your family had a great holiday season. 

My family and I took a trip up to Trysil, Norway to spend time with friends, go skiing, and reflect on 2017. It was really good.
My wife and I are really fascinated that our son is starting school in 2018. Where did our baby go? ;-)

Thank you for being a part of my community in 2017!
