SKU: teemu-mantysaari Category:


Teemu Mäntysaari is one half of the blazing guitar assault in the power metal band Wintersun. When he’s not melting faces on the stage and filling hard disks in the studio, Teemu molds minds as a teacher in Helsinki and on the road. Of particular interest to Cracking the Code fans, this has included extensive work teaching pickslanting mechanics to guitarists of all levels.

In our talk, Teemu graciously shares his personal strategies for teaching pick grip and pickslanting interaction, converting students from one pickslant to another, using two-way pickslanting for arpeggio sweeping, maintaining tight hand synchronization through sweeps, and lots more.

The interview package includes the 1.5-hour discussion, along with 69 musical examples with tablature. In the musical examples you’ll find Teemu’s take on the amazing “Winter Madness” solo, as well as another totally improvisational solo for interview outro.
