My postings at vimeo.com is a great success. I have many new followers and friends there and many from YouTube are now posting their music on Vimeo. That is very nice for me to see and I enjoy listening to them in Vimeo's great sound and video quality.
I have upgraded my website so it is now possible to visit all my pages with a secure connection. Just add an "s" to the http before my address. i.e https://www.per-olovkindgren.com
Of course, the connection on my web shop is, and has always been, secure and using SSL (https)!
As always I have many new compositions and arrangements you can listen to at vimeo.com/perolovkindgren All of them are also available at my web shop.
My CD "Air" is unfortunately sold out but I can now offer it as mp3 and FLAC download from my shop. FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is an audio standard with BETTER sound than a CD! I am providing Higher-resolution recordings: 4608 kbps (96 kHz/24 bit) FLAC files.
Many have asked me to provide a 100% transcript of all the music on my CD "AIR". I am happy to let you know I made a sheet music version and a TAB version of the COMPLETE CD for download. Please be sure to order the correct version...
My PlayBook is now available with TABs!
I am also proud to announce I am (again) "Guitarist of the Month" at Guitar-Tube.com
Don't forget to play your guitars!

Just before Christmas John Rogerson flew over from England bringing the 11-stringed altoguitar he made for me. Because of the smaller body (but larger fretboard) he could bring his toothbrush, underwear and clothes inside the guitarcase! :-)
It is beautiful and will sound amazing once it is "broken in".
What would one use that guitar for? Well, it is perfect for music from the periods around 16th-17th centuries. I love to play J. S. Bach, John Dowland and S. L. Weiss on it.
The 5 extra bass strings are only used as open strings tuned in the key you are playing in and you never press the strings with your left hand. The "standard" tuning is: G D Bb F C G F E D C B. Just like a normal guitar with a Capo in 3rd fret (and five extra strings...).
You can listen to my first recording with it here: A Man's Best Friend that I made for John's friend Miya in Beijing, China.
