I’m happy to announce that this spring I’ll be putting out some new music to the public! Stay tuned for upcoming gigs where some of these songs will be debuted 🙂
Again, picking up the guitar, remembering why it all started. Getting back to the core of the music and losing yourself to the pure joy of the rhythm and the riff. I love playing complex stuff and getting my head around different types of challenging music, but there’s nothing like being a part of a groove and being able to fill that little hole in the music with just the right part to complete the musical machinery. Playing pop/rock has always been about that for me. Being a part of the band machine that keeps on grooving, no matter what!
I’m happy to announce that the Swedish Arts Council is supporting Thymeshift+Amsler for 2019. We’re grateful and prepared to create some new sick music. Our current plan is to finish mixing and mastering our newly recorded album. Hopefully it will be out soon! We also have a fall tour in the pipe so stay tuned!
In da pocket! Having both Nile Rodgers and Paul Jackson Jr playing on the same album must have been a dream come true for the guys in Daft Punk. I consider these two guitarists among the most prolific rhythm players on the planet. I love the contrast of the loose, jangly rhythms that Nile provides and Pauls tight, muted riffs. I could keep playing this stuff forever ❤️ The first riff is guitar straight out of the sound card w/some compressor, no amps. The other guitars were recorded w/Line6 Native using this patch: https://line6.com/customtone/tone/413… 👉PLAY LOUDER👈
For all you gear heads and music nerds out there!
I’ve now got a new Facebook page where you get regular reports on my musical activities. Please head over to FB and click the thumbs up 🙂
I’ve also got a new Instagram page for the same reason. I would appreciate if you gave me a follow there as well 🙂
Have a great day!
Thymeshift + Amsler has been on the road for an intense week performing at different venues around Sweden. Besides playing regular concerts, we’ve been doing some really fun workshops with students at different stages in their musical development. The common theme for the workshops has been improvisation. Everybody can improvise in music, it’s no different than improvising in your everyday life. We make split second decisions all the time everyday and we can do the same in music. It doesn’t need to have anything to do with playing the “right” scales or notes. It’s a mindset! We had some really rewarding moments with the students during the week. Fun, fun, fun!
Also worth mentioning is that we’ve now completed our forthcoming album. We spent 2 days at Studio Zen in Gothenburg recording several new tunes. We’re stoked about this. It will be a great album, maybe there’s material for a double album. We’ll see!
Finally, look out for our last shows on this tour!
