Thomas Berglund


My name is Thomas Berglund and I´m a swedish musician and guitar teacher. I have played in various genres through the years but no matter what style I play in there´s the improvisation moment I search. I love jazz, blues, country and many styles but there´s in the improvisation my heart is. intention is to have lessons in various genres but to put in solo scales, phrasing and stuff from the improvisation that makes the music comes alive.
