Former profession, now very serious hobby

7-string jazz guitar

My former profession and now hobby is music.

For the last 20 years or so, I have mainly been playing the 7-string jazz guitar, write arrangements, and sing Four Freshmen-style (all 4 voices by myself).
I use a computer program called "Band-in-a-Box", to accompany myself, write arrangements, and sing four voices in the style of The Four Freshmen. See my Band-in-a-Box page for further information.

Also I wrote, as freelancer, about jazz guitar and guitarists for the US Just Jazz Guitar magazine, until it was closed down.

I also used to work with vocalist Anne Ma Bakke as a duo.

For gigs and workshops etc. please contact me as early as possible!

My first guitar

I started playing on my father's 4-string guitar at age 11. So through the years "I grew" from 4, via 6 to 7 strings!

This is the guitar I started playing on. The neck was narrowed down ad the headstock has only 4 tuning pegs.

Lars Kristian,

Jeg kjenner ikke kursmaterialet til Robert Conti så godt! Men siden du er nybegynner ville jeg starte på det nivået.
