This production was originally released on tapes in the year 1992.
Since 1998 I've been starting to release my old productions on CD.
"Open Tunes" was one of my most successful tapes that time
and even if these recordings are not really "up to date" to day,
I think the music has a historic value enough to be re-released on a CD.
But I make the CD's one by one
and it is a verry limited edition!

“Open Tunes” is a demonstration of some of my instrumental guitar music.
All tunes are played in different open tunings.
It is an attempt to create a new and different way to use the acoustic guitar
as a solo instrument but with such a complete arrangement as possible.

Most of the tunes are also sparely arranged with other instruments
-but my intention has been to keep the acoustic guitar as the leading
solo instrument in the tunes.

The recordings are made on a 4-track porta studio
in Skogsnäs, a little village in the northern Swedish forests
in the years 1991-1992.

* Thanks to Stefan Nyberg
for making the solo parts on electric guitar
at the tunes: "Transformed jig"(A3) and "Missing"(B5).
