Teemu Mäntysaari Live 2018

The amazing Teemu Mäntysaari stopped by the Cracking The Code Studio after the final show of Wintersun’s North American tour to share his trademark tastefully blazing playing and thoughtful insights on everything from gear to teaching.

In fact, because Teemu maintains an active teaching schedule even when the band is on the road, a slate of lucky students got to visit him backstage at New York’s storied Irving Plaza on the day of the show for a guitar lesson. How cool is that?

Teemu was also game to try out a motion capture sensor which had fortuitously arrived the same day Teemu did. We managed to get it up and running for a very cool demonstration his famously fluid forearm-driven lead and rhythm techniques, visualized in 3D on our iPad.
