I have that quote in my email signature. Digg felt they had to title this video “Swedish Shredder Finds The Ugliest Sounds A Guitar Can Make.” The jolly Freak Guitarist who posted it called it simply “Harmonics #5 – Mattias Eklundh Guitar Lesson.” Either way these are some great sounds.
Australian documentarian Emma Franz is making what looks to be a great film about seminal modern guitarist Bill Frisell. I contributed to the IndieGoGo campaign to help her finish and I highly recommend that those of you who have loved his music over the years do likewise. Let’s make this happen.
