In this mandolin video lesson I show you how I play the intro for the tune Begåvningsmarschen. I learned the technique of Blast Chords from Chris Thile and Mike Marshall when they played the song ”What a Blast” from the album ”Into the Cauldron”.

In my music theater costume! - Acoustic Folk Guitar

This is a vlog style video with me playing and talking about the tour I made this spring. I play a tune called Going West that is part of the music theater piece I´ve been working with, ”On the other side of Swede Hollow”. Watch the video and join me on one of my working days. I´ve got a new camera and try to be creative with it to learn all the cool things I can do with it. Timelaps, slowmotion etc. I use a Collings Guitar and a partial capo from G7th.
