2016, bring it on!

Happy New Year folks!

I have so many things to look forward to this year.. There's going to be many big changes in my life, and I've been  preparing for some of them this year... :)

First of all, me and my wife Zandra are going to be parents this year! Man, that's a big change, and we can't wait! 

I'm currently in the studio (Twangster Studio) with producer Martin Carlberg recording my second album. This one is going to be featuring some of my own personal favourite musicians as well as solo songs performed by myself. My last record ("Handmade"), I recorded in Oslo in a big studio over a weekend, but this time I want to have more time on each track, treating every song as a "new project". It's a totally different approach compared to the 1st record, but I felt that I wanted to do it in a different way this time around. Stay tuned! :)

This year I'll also work more with my website, and there will be more video lessons and things for all of you to learn from. Since my private lesson schedule was so busy last year, I felt that I wanted to make a change and focus more on other things, this being one of them.

About gigs:
I'll be doing many different kinds of gigs this year, It will be solo concerts, freelance guitar gigs, duo stuff, clinics/workshops and guitar bootcamps! We have a wonderful new bootcamp called "Dalaguitar" ( www.dalaguitar.se ) wich is taking place on the 12-13 of march outside of "Borlänge" in Dalarna, Sweden. The bootcamp is full already, so hopefully we'll manage to do one more (at least) this year. Check out the website! 

I want to wish you all a happy new year, and I hope that you get a great start! :)

Kind regards/ Emil <3
