When I stumbled onto Mika Tyyskä (aka Mr Fastfinger) in Hall 4.0 of the MusiMesse, I immediately asked him to do a video interview and he accepted at once. We talked about his upcoming album “Stringweaver” to be released May 21st 2013 (listen to the extracts played before the interview).
The interview is available on YouTube (see viewer below) and in mp3 in the podcast feed.
The superb visual for “Stringweaver” :

It seems that the countries from northern Europe have something special to have so many incredible guitar players, Mika Tyyskä from Finland and also known as Mr Fastfinger is one of them.
“In Motion” is a great music album full of superb guitar playing. Yes you will hear some heavy shredding in there but this is NOT your typical shredder’s album, it’s way more than that. Mika’s music is both intriguing and enjoyable.
