Petteri Sariola: Finger Warm Up

Petteri Sariola is the most famous Finnish percussive acoustic guitarist. In this video recorded in Germany last year, he plays live his composition called “Stomp”.

Here is the bio from his official website
Petteri Sariola (1984) is a phenomenon, mostly known for his percussive approach on the acoustic guitar. He picked it up at the age of 7 but after countless non-functional bands he ended up developing a virtuosic style of his own, covering all the sounds of a full band on an acoustic guitar while singing his heart out. No loops, no backing tracks. Sariola has played almost a thousand shows, toured solo around Europe, USA and Japan and reached millions of viewers on YouTube.
 
He shares his time between playing solo acoustic guitar and rocking out with the electric as the frontman of Dead Sirius 3000, a band of pure energy that combines raw rock & roll with killer melody hooks and fusion elements.
 
Sariola’s albums “Silence!” & “Phases” and Dead Sirius 3000′s “Get Sirius” have all been released in Europe and they are available in Japan by King Records.
 
He has been awarded with Nokia Young Talent scholarship, Honorary Prize in the Helsinki Funk Awards, City Magazine Guitarist of the year and as the cover article of Akustik Gitarre, the biggest acoustic guitar magazine of Europe.
 
Beside his solo work he has collaborated with Doug Wimbish (Madonna, Living Colour), Jon Gomm (UK), Mike Dawes (UK), Don Johnson Big Band, Felix Zenger (James Brown, N.E.R.D.), Osmo Ikonen (Sunrise Avenue), just to mention a few. He enjoys coffee and long walks on a beach. Unfortunately Finland is snowy and dim 8 months per year so you can find him traveling pretty constantly.
