    Hey there and a happy new year!

    I've been wanting to do this kind of a performance challenge where I improvise something every day and make it public for everyone to see. I'm a hopeless noodler when it comes to guitar playing and get my fair share of kicks out of it, so why not make it more serious!

    One of the reasons I'm doing this is because I wanna get more focused to the music I make and this kind of a situation basically needs one to be present and able. For one whole year, I'll try to post a video per day. First take, first shot. What comes to mind, gets recorded and uploaded. Whether it's bad or good, doesn't matter, it's a performance never the less.

    Here's day 1:

    Day 3: Morning impro. Hard to get your things together, when you just woke up.

    Day 4: Evening impro. Had a pretty good idea, but fell of the wagon at some point.

    Oh.. i thought the challenge was for other people to improvise over what you posted. Maybe I'll do that anyway.

    Thanks Andrew.Guitar! Even though 95% of this stuff is something that would never make it to a real recording, it's fun and revealing :)

    Day 11: Had a pretty basic idea that kept going 'till I got pulled aside and tried to survive from there on.

    Day 15: Morning impro at 7:30AM. Kept the idea alive and didn't detach too far from the theme, so that's good. Able to hear those morning brains effing up though.

    I didn't notice that you also were from Finland, but when I saw your Fano I thought that this looks just like one Fano that was on sale on muusikoiden.net some time ago (during past year maybe, but time flies so could be longer) and then noticed the location which confirmed my suspicion. Cool challenge and cool guitar!
