I dreamt that Viktor (the guitarist of my band Over the Distance) told me that I wasn’t allowed to film him playing guitar, but instead I could film Marthin (a classmate) when he played tambourin, wore his green moustasch (which he had knitted on a craft lesson) and played squirrel.

Today I downloaded a tablature editor called ”Power Tab Editor” for free from Download.com. It handles guitar, bass and similar string instruments and is good (thinking of the fact that it’s free). Strongly recommended.
