This lasted for two years after which he spent 3-4 years staring at the black and white keys of piano and learning also some basic theory behind music. At the age of nine, Tuomo’s Godfather gave him a Landola acoustic guitar that had hung on a wall without anyone playing it almost ever. That was the start of a neverending journey to the world of rock, metal and especially guitar. When 6th grade was over his father bought him the first electric guitar and amp and the only crucial thing that was missing was James Hetfield’s beard and a long hair – the right attitude and passion was there.
Now after some 25 years the long hair is still missing and the beard is hardly a beard but the attitude and passion for good hard hitting metal music still exists.
