    I have had the pleasure to work with Fredrik on several occasions now, he is a fabulous guitar player with an exceptional feel for giving a song that little extra, the hit vibe! On top of this he is also a great songwriter and producer, so if you ever get a chance to work with him, DO! He´s awesome! /Eric Amarillo
