Elmo Karjalainen Has Entered "Guitar Idol 2016"

Elmo has entered Guitar Idol 2016. It's probably the biggest guitar competition in the world and he'd be really happy if you'd go and have a listen to his song and maybe even vote. You can do so here: http://www.guitaridol.tv/Entry/Index/337

The song he used as his entry is called "The Grassy Gnoll", and is a song from the upcoming album, which will have the title "The Age Of Heroes". He has a story behind the title, but he'll share that at a later date. Again, he'd really appreciate it if you could vote for his entry (but only if you like it): http://www.guitaridol.tv/Entry/Index/337

Here's the take of "The Grassy Gnoll" he didn't use for Guitar Idol. He thought it was quite good, but not quite as good as the other one. He hopes you enjoy it: https://youtu.be/kNQerxW6Ed8
 

And here's Elmo jamming along to what is basically the backing of Yngwie Malmsteen's "Marching Out". He's always liked the song, and thought it would be fun to play over those changes, so now he did. You can find it here: https://youtu.be/Bick7gt9yco

Elmo is not sure if you are aware of it, but he's always had a guestbook on his site. He's never really encouraged people to use it, since he hated the fact that the platform wouldn't allow him to respond to comments. He likes responding to stuff, so that bothered him. Well he finally got around to doing something about that. It's nothing fancy, just something where you can post comments, and he can reply. You can find it here if you want to post something (that would be cool): http://www.elmojk.com/guitarblog/guestbook/

He also recently wrote a bit of a rant on the subject of making money from music, versus making music for the love of it. You can find his take on the whole thing here: http://www.elmojk.com/guitarblog/dont-do-it-for-the-money-do-it-for-the-love-of-music/
