The live video series continues! The 4th video is from Petteri's concert in Kulturzentrum Schlachthof, Germany. The gig was in November 2014 and it was actually the very first concert which started his live recording routine.
The live video series continues! The 3rd video is from the sold out show at Tampere Guitar Festival 2015 in Finland. The song is a bitter sweet vocal ballad, "Last Summer", from his second album "Phases".
The second live video is now online! The concert was at Savoy Theater in Helsinki where Petteri played an opening set as Andy McKee's special guest. During McKee's set they performed his famous piece "Ebon Coast" as a duet.

Before and after the vacation begins. The first photo is from a few days ago, had to do a couple of long nightshifts at the studio and... well, the lower one is my current situation: I'M OUTTA HERE, SEE YOU IN 2 WEEKS! :)
Hey Germany! Danke schön for an amazing weekend. Here's a pic from Cuntz Guitars' 10th anniversary Gitarrenzauber -event! Were you there? I was trying to be serious but Mike Dawes totally ruined it 😂
Stay tuned for a new live video... tomorrow!
We made an epic version of Coldplay's new hit "Adventure of a Lifetime" at Mimixstudio with my brother Jyri on the drums and Tomas Höglund Official on the lead vocals. Much fun was had, enjoy! ;)

Let's do some jazzy things for a change! This is #ManhattanSnapshot by Laurence Juber. It's probably the first #fingerstyle tune I ever learned back in high school. Have a good week!

Picked up my grandpa's old guitar and played one of my favourite classical guitar pieces, Antonio Lauro 's #Registro. My classical chops and the guitar are in a bit rusty condition but it's still fun to play :)
#BeatOfTheWeek ! Practicing my ooooold "Where The Streets Have No Name" arrangement. I haven't played this in years! I'm doing a batch of live videos in the studio this week and this one's in it ;) #U2
Tampere Guitar Festival 2015 was a great event! I had not played in Tampere for years but the show was sold out and the crowd was fantastic. I managed to record the gig and snipped one tune for my live video series. Thank you #Tampere!

I'm very sad to hear about the death of David Bowie. "#Outside" album (1995) was the official soundtrack of my high school years. In memoriam of DB, it's time to visit Outside again with "#TheHeartsFilthyLesson". Rest in peace.
Hello friends & fans! Thanks for an amazing year, it's been a thrill to tour throughout Europe and Asia. Many dreams became reality.
But to be honest, 2015 hasn't been very easy. Among other obstacles, I've lost family members and dealing with these losses while touring has been difficult. These are those inevitable facts of life we all have to face at some point, and while we can sometimes prepare for these things, they still hit us out of the blue. As the year went on, I felt a growing need to take time for myself and my family and at the same time I distanced myself from social media, and even from some friends. I just felt I couldn't keep up with the amount of communication. This lasted for some months. 2015 has been a bittersweet year, I'm grateful for the memories and experiences, and I'm glad to leave it behind.
At the same time I'm thrilled about 2016, there's some great things happening but I'll tell you more about that when the time is right. Thank you for sharing this adventure. Remember to tell your loved ones that you love them. Take care.
Playing around with Overloud's Markbass bass-amp plugin. What a wonderful tool for beefing up the magnetic and piezo pickups of the guitar inside the DAW environment. Very impressive, I've used their amps for ages but this plugin really nails it. Hint: it's on discount 'til new year's!
