Album Notes
Celebrating and expanding the ten year old Mr. Fastfinger's debut album "The Way of the Exploding Guitar". The album is very special to its creator Mika Tyyskä, it was a childhood dream of an istrumental album coming true. The album set the tone and style of Mr. Fastfinger for good. It was also Mika's first serious album production and there was a lot of learning involved in the making. Lot of hard work, intuition, little help from friends and some magic. Most incredible is that the album still sounds fantastic!

"Exploding Heart" is an epic piece that got started when Mika listened to the isolated orchestra elements of the tune "Big Trummors". The background elements sounded very inspired and new top melodies started to come in mind.. The beginning and the first half of new guitar melodies came out like magic but how the actual arrangement and instrumentaion found place was a year long hunt. Guest Sampo Tiittanen played 3 tracks of double bass and gave this tune the solid big bottom. Suddenly the guitar wasn't there alone anymore. Thomas Törnroos' drum playing was also recycled from Big Trummors -sessions.

"Rescue You" is a new composition, but the basic foundation is in the ruins of a tune that didn't make it to the debut album. The drums of Thomas Törnroos and bass of Lasse Rantanen plus the middle section guitars are from the 2007-2008 sessions. New updated harmonies, melodies, synths sounds and especially the guitars shaped the tune into something else. From the ashes of an old tune rose new beautiful music. Very excited about this one!

"Crying in the Cave" is a piece that was finished during the making of the original album and even brought to the original album mastering session but it was later left out of the album. This tune is excatly like it was recorded and mixed originally, nothing added and changed. After the making of Guitar Shred Show this was the very first tune Mika wrote with Mr. Fastfinger in mind. It started with the title which is of course I tribute to the Whitesnake song "Crying in the Rain". The rolling muted guitar arpeggios where played on a Tokay strat which gave the part very special tone.

Hope yo enjoy this little celebration release. New album will be released at the end of summer.
