First, of all I'd like to say, thank, you to everyone who commented, so, nicely, on my new, single, Cerberus, that. I uploaded, past. Monday thank. You so much I love you guys, the response, has been amazing and. It. Makes me really proud about myself that sees that you guys like the song this song was a little heavier than, that Pizza, Hawaii and maybe a little bit more in the vein that you probably. Would. Suspect. To, hear from me so, there you go thank you so much for. For. That what's, this oh wait. Okay let's just go on with the questions great okay first question. Today. That, didn't sound magical let's try this again first question. Johannes. VDS. Mauro, how did you propose your wife did you play her Pantera, with, yes. Of course I did no we did what many many adult, Swedes, would, do and we. Would take, a decision. Together. That. We're getting married so. It's. Not like in the movies I'm sorry I don't really have a good story for you we just decided that we would get married and we. Exchanged, rings and then we kissed. Beautiful. Lola getting, all the whamon in here great and that when was that, mm. Really. I think, Louise. What. I told Sahn 3 rd floor boss. She. Doesn't know either so there you go great Ola Rick, Sanchez hello, hola have a great, day, from Rick Sanchez. You. Know it's. A guy, from. Rick. And Morty thank you so much I really. Appreciate, that some people are just in here to just wish me a great day thank you so much have a great date you too it's I I have a good feeling about this Sunday. Do you know it's Wednesday black sheep hola did you see the trailer for the new halal, night game silk song. Yes. I did and holy shit, you know it's not often nowadays that I get excited. For a game or, a game release, but yes, since, my. Favorite, game of 2018. Was hallow night seeing. The sequel, silk, song coming out I'm. So, happy great I'm currently playing this Metro. Exodus. On my PC, which, is an amazing, experience by the way if you have an ultra, HD. Monitor, with what. You called ultra wide screen it's really. Meant the graphics, are excellent the. Characters needlework. It gets a lock where the times but I'm, playing this right now but I cannot, wait to. Play self song probably, on the switch hopefully. They will, release, it on switch at the same time as they release the for PC so, thank you yeah then it makes me really excited actually so great recording, audio yes we are Gary, hey wait warning. When is the single cut going, to be released I don't. Know exactly yet. I've shown it before and I'm gonna show it again here, it is. Guitar. Today. My. Single cut we. Don't know yet I just thought it would be funny to tease, about it but it will probably be a first half of this year at least stay tuned, to. A solar guitars, website near you. There's. Only one solo guitars calm by the way Sebastian. Wyse oh, hi. A lot I don't know why how say you but I think he's a Swede because advice' is so very, well. It could be German too I guess hi hola we all know you we. All know you gear, in sound, but, I want to know you're geared towards cameras, microphones, lights lenses. Etc, okay great, let. Me bring my one, of my cameras so. Currently my setup, is. Consisting. Of three. Different. Panasonic. Lumix G. H v this is a gh 5s this the only one I have one, and I'm filming with right now it's a regular gh 5 and I have another one over there so those. Are my main, YouTube.

Cameras, That I use and then ok so I used to go pro for you know something, quick and you know just, in my iPhone as well you know the iPhone has a great camera as well so you know a lot of your blogging stuff I do with the GoPro, and and my. IPhone, that's, it basically but here in my studio I'm using the Panasonic, gh4. And the lenses that I have this is a Leica, that. Lens 12, to 60, I have this lens on all three cameras, because, it's a sick-ass, lens. And, it's. What comes with the cameras if you buy them expensive mics. This, is a rudder. Microphone. Into. A rudder, I don't, know what you call it but it's like a wireless thingamabob. That's on the camera right there and I have one the, transmitter. Here and it. Kind of sucks I personally. Prefer when you just hook, it up like a rudder microphone into an iphone and record the, quality's just way better that, way this, microphone is kind of like picking up a lot of this the noises around this so not. The best microphone, but it will do for now lights. I'm using, these. What. Do you call it aperture. This. Is a 120. D, as, in. Dick Kerr, equips 11 hey Lola given that you prefer lyrics to be a political I guess that you don't like rage against the machine meter right anyway, there's a bank called fever three three three oh that's the worst bad, name I can ever say because it's a lot of threes, in them that can fill the void left by Rage Against the Machine try to give them a listen they do speak about social, injustice over simple group patterns and and family, courses, I'm a fan of Rage Against the Machine, but, I mean their music is just so good that I don't really care that much about the lyrics so, fever, three, three three should, I check it out. Oh. No. They did they. Burnt the police car. That's. So edgy maybe. That's what's needed for. Me to become cool. Shit. Holy. Shit actually sounds like raging hands in between. Yes. This. Is cool. In, there beating someone thought, the cop beating him oh it's. Probably about, coffee. Islands in the US. Okay. Well. Sounds good, well. Yeah I just listen to the music I don't listen to lyrics I don't really care that much about alerts that's why my songs are about rabbits. Shit and Dragons, Alexis. Lysenko hi, how, can I ask hola a question. Dennis. Shit Esther you just did great job. Alexis. Lysenko that. Is not a question. Paul. Each guarantee, that this question will be in the next step thank you yes, Polly SH has, got it right. Why. Are there so many unsubscribing.

People, Right now why is that I think it's just because I release my new song people hate it yes. You do ask questions, in the comment section of the latest epic you video that's the only one I check so make sure you're watching, the absolute, latest. Video before, you do. A comment otherwise I won't see your question okay Thank You Nordstrom. 1990. Channel, will you be making a solar Poplar with, a Floyd Rose. Yes. Supercritical. Ola your new single Cerberus, was absolutely. Killer I may, be way off the mark but I have filmed the first solo is played with a certain beam guitar mmm. Confirm, denied, anyway, man your videos and content have brought me back to playing guitar and inspired me to try new things and music good luck to you on your family and keep killing oh thank you so much supercritical, no, I didn't, use the, dean guitar, for. That solo actually used where. Is it I used. This guitar. When. I record the album I didn't have a 7 string Floyd we do have one now the mortgage angel Daniel. Vaughn. Signature. Guitar which, has a 7 stream in a Floyd so I record it on this. Hey. Cool. Huh Hosea. Hey. What do you think about LOV, ta, or. Is it Alou Benny yeah, in the vanity Olivia. I think. They're excellent it's very melodic very, cool and Jonas, wolf guitar player is playing solo guitars now thank, you so much Jonas I love you Elias, Altman for reefer today can't do something in East and 'red I. Made. Some Feeny standard 2 at the Cuse ago it was the pizza, why song so go check, that one out please. It's. Like people kind of expect me, that I'm always playing seven strings and drop D and D and D stander, and drop C and drop a and drop. Drop, double-a come on man I'm playing a lot of standard, e songs. Okay. Thank. You positive. Allah okay let's get back into positiveness, can I get a subscriber, for that. Hello. Phillip. Leander what's, up all wow this arrow in your desk since your arrow, to Denis no it's our to my desk oh. Shit. That's it wow wow, did, you drop the power eight is it better I'm looking forward to get one of this but I don't see many reviews about the interface if you could show us a little bit above the sound quality and what you think about it it would be great okay, so I had an Apollo 8 rack. You. Idiot to face before but it, broke and then I sent it to repair and then I sold it because I got, an Apogee, ensemble. Is that thank you that's the subscriber I was waiting for I bought, the UAD, arrow basically. As an interface, for me to use during clinics and workshops. So. I can have, a very small gigging. Solution, and I'll be using this I use this in China I used it in Russia and, it's. It's. Incredible, for what I'm doing the inputs are great I could definitely see myself recording, the I guitar, with this but, right now it's just sitting on my desk being plugged in so I can use my UAD plugins, even. Though I'm using my Apogee ensemble, here at home but I definitely recommend the, uid arrow it's an excellent interface, that sounds absolutely, awesome vocal, 9 hey what does the s and, R in solar stand for.

So. We just wear today. So. The s in obviously. Hola, hola hola. That's. My name s. And. Our cert. Rev. So. It's cert, all arab-arab. Arava. So. It's solar, sweet. Ola ass. Schizophrenic. Get, on Twitter, I. Am. On Twitter and Twitter. Is the worst platform ever and I have such a problem of making it growing maybe, it is because I don't post there because I think it's a shitty ass platform, okay how many followers do I have, 9,000, 101 I think I've had 9,000. Sin 5 2012, something like that what, what do I even post anything here okay, I'm gonna pull something here right now okay, tweeter today shout. Out, to, all my. FAQ. Viewers. Okay. Tweet. Oh the. Hell. What. Look. It's, just fucking text, but. It's still kinda uploading. The text Oh excellent. App I love you Twitter excellent. Great I'm gonna be there every day now. Okay. It's still waiting by the way it's been a minute Marcus. Bleak hey Lola can you go into more detail, on how you have, your guitar recording, stuff set up I tried, recording my guitars before using a. Personís. Audio box and some impulses, but it sounds like crap I recently bought the fort nameless, pack and again I sound like crap but granted, Amish guitar, player but at least want to hit the strings it sounds, it should sound decent I'm, using active pickups and I'm wondering if I need a reamp, or di box or whatever I've, always been a strong believer in. That. The. Less shit, you use the. Better so. I've always. Been about using, as little. Stuff as possible and with. The little stuff that I'm using I make sure it's the absolute best sounding so you, know I've always been a huge advocate for Apogee, interfaces, you know the small ones they have the Apogee one and, now. Also the UAD arrow because. At both Apogee, and UAD, their. Inputs. The high high resolution, the high C high said inputs, that they have is more. Than enough to. Record a guitar di, signal and so. You don't need a DI box anymore but for that matter I just record everything straight. Into the audio interface it's guitar it's, a good cable make sure it's a good cable make sure that your guitar is, soldered. Rights and the pickups, are okay. Good. Cable into. The interface that's, it that's all you need to do and usually. On my interface I go for like zero gain, for. The inputs because, that's just more, than enough I think simplicity. Is the key and when, people start using too much stuff it, gets overly complicated, and, usually. It doesn't, sound right I personally made a lot of experiments, and I've seen that the absolute best signal, to noise ratio. Is when. You plug your guitar into, a really good input. Of a good audio interface. And also something that also could interfere is the power in your room so make sure you have a you, know a grounded. Outlet that, you connect. Everything to and you, can clean stuff like that up with a permanent power conditioner, conditioner. So. That's it good. Luck buddy act, on saxophone. Anton. Sakura, but it was funny, okay, oh England the Slayer of Cyrillic, let's do this let's, do your name na, been. Talk. Ya pub, man. Tokyopop. Great. Olegmon, Cyril ik getting, so many friends in Russia right now johann. Van Bo how many vinyl copies are in the first pressing, I. Decided. To go for 505, holes and the first pressing and then we'll see maybe I'll make it limited I don't know yet he's talking about my solo, album master, of universe pre-order, of the day up, here Greg gently guy oh Lola do you see yourself covering any other dream for your songs or if not what about one by periphery. No. The problem with, the dream theater or periphery songs is is. My, skill you know I see kids that, are doing. A great job with the covers, Recovery's, cover ease of peripheries, great and you were today, cover, ease that's. When you cover periphery, you know I like to. Your. Tweet could not be sent right now and it's been saved as a draft oh great. Try, again oh. Oh. Come, on come on you can do it. You. Can do it almost, there oh it's, almost there guys. Twitter. Great, it may be a simpler dream for your song would be up my alley we'll, just have to see Alex.

Campbell Oh la la what do you think of the new Dream Theater songs that are coming out how excited, are you for the new album Bonjour, from freezing snowy Canada, okay, to be completely honest oh I. Wish. You could see the hair flowing around here in 4k. I'm. Gonna be completely honest, I didn't really have that much of an expectations, for, this album because I was not a big fan of the. Previous, album what was it called. Was, the Ascension you know that nah proofing, that they made it, just wasn't my, thing I did not like that elbow at all because. I'm now, a metal reviewer, because what, like two or three years ago I made a Michigan an album, review and now, on the list to, like. A review, list so I get albums early and I, receive the. Album, a couple days ago and I was like okay, maybe I'll do a review video, so. I listened to the album and all like holy shit it's actually pretty good and I. Think it might be one of the best rhythm tones, john petrucci has ever had and some. Of the songs are straight up like oh holy shit that's some good-ass riffing, right there so, I'm. Gonna give it a couple more lessons and the. The single that they put out they were kind of like man you know they were okay. Not really necessarily, the doing filler that that, I'm used. To you know the old images of words and all that but that's fine I mean it's, a band they've been around forever they, evolved and you know you, get your own you know you your, tastes, changes, of whatnot that's, fine but there are other songs on there that, are incredible. I must say so I, think. It was released this past Friday go, check it out then you drink their album you know I listen to Green Fairy since they're. Falling into infinity which, was actually my first album but, you. Know images, and words in awake ma. Scene from memory - all holy, shit so. Many good albums falling, into infinity finna. Me humming. It to infinity me it's, a great great. AIC. Sixty-eight love yo la reminder, it's been more than 14 days challenge also. Did you write the solo work, to. Saw me blog curse from s Six, Feet Under oh shit I, don't. Know. Let's. Find out did, I record maybe I did actually record, a bunch of solos on the other songs that were not mine, what's, invested. Olá investigate, the river. Oh. Well, that's me playing that's it's. Probably my solo because I would never you, know try to record. Someone else's solo. Yeah. It's it's, definitely my shitty Isola, Honda. Okay. Maybe I had more solos on there it's just I forget, shit like this I did yeah, you, know I wrote a couple of songs for the album but I yeah, I definitely. Did not remember me. Playing solos on the other songs but there you go thank you for reminding me that's excellent, Jonathan. Harris Ola man I need you to do a riff of the haunted The Haunted. Dead-on-arrival. Riff. I wanted, to learn it since rock band man I'm begging you that was 15 years ago shit, Oh five Plus subscribers, that means that the Internet has come back to business and while, I was gone I got, five subscribers I've never seen that before where the hell Emma there you go okay. Let's do a riff roll it. Today. Oh Oh. Someone's. Been recording, a solo you, can see it when one of these bullshitters. Are on there you, know what consumes, my my, thoughts nowadays, I'm just rambling, whelmed hooking. Up all my stuff here you know I'm just thinking about my house. And. All the cool shit that I'm gonna do in my man cave I'm, just thinking about that all the time I just want to be there I love my room I love this apartment but, I want to beat her okay, oh. Wow do. We have audio. Know. Why. I'm, following it, my. Stupid oh okay, let's turn on and off again. Remember. From be thorough uh oh uh oh yeah, okay, bro torn. Hera knows Roy, thomna. Okay, with, a little thin thin hair oh oh. Okay. Success. Fuck it that took a while so, do, a the. Haunt dead. So. Quick. Something. Like that I don't remember uh boom. Hey you your new album be, an apple music eventually right, yes, it's gonna be available, on all streaming platforms, okay so don't, worry it's gonna be out there just, having to decide on the release date yet pine, or by Ola you're awesome in every way on every level thank you so much fuck people, are just there.

Look At my boss but. Please get rid of that gaming, chair of yours can't, watch your blog since I can't stand looking at it whoa. What. The fuck is wrong with my chair man can't, watch my vlogs, I mean when, I'm vlogging I'm not in this room I'm out touring. Or whatever so. You can't even see the chair there I mean your, your question, does not it's, not question. But. Your comment, here doesn't make any sense at all so. Thank. You hands, can toss is that a goddamn Volvo pen you're playing with also. I have a Volvo pen oh it, could be brothers where's. The pen no. No, this is a Excel, hotel, Tokyo, it's a pen. I stole from a hotel in Tokyo so no we, cannot be friends I am, commit all of the salesmen I got an idea in a comment put a feature on your solar site where people can vote which guitar they like they can vote only once per guitar maybe using email address as input prior to voting and then, you can determine which, guitars, are in demand oh that's. An excellent idea except. That you guys have no fucking idea what you want I know, what you want and. Hola. I'm just care yeah I'm just kidding oh look at that sorry. It's. A great idea it's just that we'll just see about that dark mine can you tell us how much you paid for the new house. No. Why. Would I, why. Would I tell you that that's stupid. All I can say is that me, and my wife we have no. Chance, in hell or. Heaven to. Buy a house where we live right now so, for us to buy a house outside, of Stockholm, it's, a lot cheaper for us to do it like that than to buy our own house here so all I can say is that we paid a shit ton, of less, money getting a house outside of Stockholm Jason, Day all of you right the bass guitar music in your songs and if you do what, bass guitars do you like to use I do. All, people, are so kind and enabling, yes I do write all the bass in my songs. And all the music and you. Know so. This is the base I use, it's, a warwick corvette on oh it's dustiest health you know if you can see that and, it, sounds absolutely sick, unless a I love this bass so, if you want a good sounding, bass, warwick. Corvette and thank you yes i do write my own bass, you know the, debates place really exists, isn't. The bass player just you know the guitar players that got rejected.

Warm. Fox have you ever considered that you might be a pending lamb and subscribers, by calling them lemon. No. Actually. Not maybe. You can make a petition if you're a female subscriber, and you, get offended by, women, the word woman's not other women, make. A comment and let me know what you think I had no idea if it was a problem or not if if people have, a problem with me calling them van and maybe, I should stop or maybe I just, don't care what you guys think okay great, Octavia. Molina Shaw here one has someone mistakenly, thought you were women in public. No. It. Has not happened but, there. Was a kid once, that said it pointed me and said like hey mom, that, guy looks like a woman I. Wanted. To punch him so bad but, you know it's, illegal to punch children and it's Sweden, which. I guess is good but you, know still I hate, that little fucker mr., Pibbs CL hey, Lola, I must admit you are the only youtuber I turned my a blocker off for aw that's, nice, order.

D album it's called master. Of the universe. And I. Think it's a great name, the Klee artists hey Lola congrats on the new house. Great. Question it looks like a great place for your view and your family to make new memories, you bought the extra lot cool you ever think about building a separate detached dwelling, for a studio you could still convert attic into guest rooms then, you could be loud in studio when you had guests block the channel man keep up the good work thank, you so much yeah, yes. The extra lot is for. Me. Somewhat. Of an investment, right, now getting. That extra piece of land just, makes sure that no one builds on that land on it so I have a good view going but. Also in, the future, right. I might build another house there and you know see that's an investment and you know sell it off and. Thank. You I don't think I need a full house for my own studio it's not like I want a big recordings, do or something like that I just wanted you know I wanted a little bigger room than this and you know I can I can, do a lot.

In A small room, like this I just need more room so I can fit more amplifiers. In there I don't need a full size house, to build a studio so. I will still make it in the Attic. But. Maybe, I'll make another house when. I have money which. Right now I don't have any money and that, was the last question guys thank. You so much for watching in, and I feel like this was a really good FAQ, and I. Hope you thought so too and if. You haven't already pre-ordered.

FAIRYS ARE HAPPIER! Preorder my album to support the fairy community: http://www.olaenglundshop.com

Hey Ola, if you've noticed a jump in views and likes, its me lol. i straight binge watched EVERY single FAQ in a row. In between sleep of course. Just my way of saying Thank You!

Hey Ola, I have a 2018 Ibanez RGA42FM hardtail. Will i have to modify my guitar to install a hipshot bridge?!?

+Chris Morgado I totally wouldn't mind doing an album with Jeff. Next time you see him let him know I'm down.

Would you ever consider doing an album with Keith merrow and or Jeff loomis? I think you guys could shred some minds together

Ordered the album just now. First physical CD I've purchased in years and only the second album I've ever pre-ordered. I rarely even listen to metal anymore, but I'm a total fan. You're simply the best, better than all the rest. Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met (on YouTube).

Hey Ola, an idea for Riff Of The Day: Pantera (what else?) - This Love riff. It starts at about 2:45. Nice uptempo Dimebag riff, quite curious if you can play it :D

rabbits and dragons ha ha ha, dig the new tunes!!

you need shirts for the ladys that say olas wamen

Can you do a riff of the day in drop b ?

Ola, my first comment, you should do a "will it chug" trilogy with your dad's pedals, guitars, and amps. Please

Ola, could you do a video where you use a katana amp with pedals such as the horizon devices misha pedal, and get massive gain? Very interested in that amp because I too play all styles of music and this amp really seems appropriate. Cheers!!

Hey Ola, Tjenar. You do real(traditionl) metal, what is your opinion of djent?

Hi. I bought one of your guitars a few days ago with open pore finish and I kind of like the thought that my purchase supports the fairy community, you and your family. I think you are a great guy. Your single cut is gorgeous, very beautiful. Your guitars match my sense of style very well. All those small details that are important for me, you make them perfect: stylish and practical. And I'm happy for your new home. Maybe you wanted it in Stockholm, but your home seems to be in a beautiful location, with those pine trees, super healthy. Wish you all the best! Oh, I wish I wouldn't see that single cut.. I would trade in for one of my artwork right now. :) Anyway.. Thank you for your videos, guitars etc..

Still no multi scale solar. So disappointing going to have to order a Kiesel

New house cover of The IVth Crusade by Bolt Thrower?

Faq Question: Master of the universe... is that a bit of a He-Man throwback?

Hey Ola, attempt to speak Spanish Btw, how did you learn English?

I don’t buy CDs anymore, but I bought yours, because I wanted to support what you’re doing. We need more public figures like you representing metal... just good people who love this music and want to share the love. Keep going, man.

lol..the look after you said.. "Aren't Bass Player's just rejected guitarists?"

DIF or AIK? I suspect not the latter. Proud Gnagare here though ;)

0:00 HE STOLEN IT FROM HIS DAUGHTER! He is a pervert he likes to dress up like a fairy! :D

Ola if you need to know a name or something els in Russian, i can translate it for you because i can read Russian and i can speak a bit Russian and your thinking now how? Well the mother of my friend is form Armenia and she can speak Russian to so thats why i can speak Russian and Read Russian. I olso have a question for you: can you please send me a blue solar guitar?

Ola, What was your favorite SNES game? Much love from Arkansas, USA. Also, the singlecut looks sick.

Ola, where can I get that chair? I need a good nap at work. Thanks, you rock! EDIT: Nevermind, I saw the name and found it on the interweb. Do you have a discount code I can use?

I ordered it yesterday. Leave me alone!

What's Ola favourite food?

Hej Ola! Greetings from GBG! Love your channel and hope that you are feeling great today! I was wondering if you could do "All against all" as riff of the day? I know it was before your time in The Haunted, but I still love that song! Take care!

Hi Ola! You were on some ad some time ago and commented on how Completely Realistic Automatic Pitch is amazing. Did you use it on your solo album since the vocals on the tracks this far sound sooo perfectly CRAP? Regards, Your finnish neighbour.

Ola can you please watch my latest published video? yes that cover man please. BTW love you videos man they've made me want to play again after all these hard years studyng for may career and taking care of my son at the same time tryng to play. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INyjC4jfmBo

Faq's became too long. Noone got time for that

Tervehdys Ola and cheers from your neighbor country, Finland! Thanks for the extremely entertaining content and keep up the good work. I used to be love the shapes like Explorer and Razorback but now I have leaned more towards Telecasters with my custom "Suhocaster" from a friend at Suhonen Guitars. It's a small company with high quality. That brings us to the question! What do you think about traditional shapes like Telecaster, Stratocaster or Jazzmaster used in metal bands? Could you see Solar making a Telecaster for example? It would look killer with the Solar headstock!

HI Ola! What is your power bill?

Hey Ola, Why didn't you burp in this FAQ? btw, keep up the great work!!!

Hey ola how does delta empire see Thur his mask

E ai Ola, tudo bem? Do you know the band Vitalism? if you don't know, I recomend to you.

Say in portuguese if you can "tudo bem"

hi ola, have you or ever listen to thin lizzy?

Yes. Bass Players exist. Cheers from Texas.

Do some in-ear phones test for the next Ola testing shit. XD

I send crops of Ola to my mom with no subject on the email. She enjoys her Jesus pics. Hell, I got a fridge magnet with Ola holding a frickin lamb ffs lol like that is probably what inspired me to do so - hey whatever makes mom happy lolgain

...och nu får jag sluta titta på dig. basister=guitarister som suger.... djupt sårad he he lol. :-D Lev Väl. Pinge

Dude, I love you. What are your favorite songs from Symbolic, The Bleeding, + Vulgar Display of Power?

Hey Ola! Any plans for a UK clinic tour anytime soon?

Hello Ola, love you videos, awesome awesome work! Greetings from Hong Kong! My question: Have you ever tried Variax guitars by Line 6? The new Variax Shuriken guitars seems pretty awesome, with the ability to change tuning / pickup / body types on the fly; I saw Stevic from 12 Foot Ninja used it to make super crazy stuff during live demonstration. What do you think about these guitars? Have a nice day Ola! You're the metal Jesus! Forget about the haters!

Mornin Ola, I love your videos... My boyfriend and I watch your stuff every day! Love the burps, you are hilarious! My boyfriend wanted to know if you like North of the woods song Stabbed with a spoon? Love from Ontario Canada!

God damn do you dig deep and chug hard. You must really have to change technique when going between an Evertune and Floyd.

As a member of the endangered species known as “bass player” when are we gonna see a solar bass? Ebony fingerboards and maple options would be awesome ! Love the show !

Hello Ola greetings from Minnesota! In the future would you think of different pickup option that you like from Seymour Duncan like the distortion or others? Keep up the good work I appreciate everything you do.

What is your favourite guitar tuning? Also, do you have any advice if it comes to writing your own songs?

Hello Ola, Huge fan & a happy owner of a Solar A2.6 TBRM. Just have a question regarding hard cases. i couldn't find a Solar hard case with an ST cut so i went for the SKB one, but the Solar body is much smaller than the typical ST cuts, thus the guitar is a bit lose in the case. What case do you use for your Solars? or any recommendations that fit the body? Cheers & keep the videos coming.

Ola, back in the day I saw Fortin designed Maxwatt behind your back. Where is there demo?

1 like for Metro Exodus at your monitor!

LOOOOL dude... I'll buy a Solar guitar just for the 'Sweet Ola Ass' thing!!

Hey Ola, Opinions of Soreption? Ever listen to them? Coffee with Mikael Almgren?

ordered the new album and a t-shirt rock on brother

Do bass players exist? Listen to "The Omnific", they are like Animals as Leaders but with two bass players instead of guitarists.

hey ola, you are pretty great, is it Swedish society makes you great in its upbringing? cheers and have a great day

Hey Ola, greetings from USA! What iPhone do you have?

Hey Ola! You always make me laugh! Love positive Ola! Hope the new house is coming along. Have you checked out the new Flow picks from Dunlop? Amazing! Anyway, my question is -what’s the best thing about being Swedish?

Hey ola love the Chanel! Having your own house is the best!! I was wondering if your a fan of the band soilwork? Thanks and keep up the good work!

Hey Ola, so we all know that you (and me as well), are a huge Dimebag fan. What exactly is it about his playing that you like so much? There's so many reasons, but what are yours? Cheers from Tennessee.

Hey, How do you write good, interesting instrumental metal songs. I have no one to play with so I can record the guitar,bass,drums myself but I struggle to make the song interesting without vocals but want to continue making music. What is your approach to this? Cheers :)

Sweet C64 shirt :) \m/

Ey Ola! I'm trying to convince my wife that i need to add a Solar A2.7LN to my guitar collection...i'm unfortunately running out of arguments. Can you help me out ?

When are we going to get an Ola/Periphery collaboration?


Hey Ola a hope you have a shit day

Is it just me or does Ola's voice get significantly deeper when he starts speaking in swedish?

Ola I just finished binge watching every FAQ video in about 2 and a half weeks, one band you have never mentioned was killswitch engage, are you a fan of the band? If you've never heard of them I reccomend the songs "In due time" and "My curse" both of the songs are with each of the singers from past and present. Ps, what's your favorite band at the moment?

Hey ola! I wonder what you think about using wounded G-Strings for metal? Before i bought my Solar i hade alot of problem with the G-string staying out of tune, no matter if i put new strings or intonated it. Could this have been a sulotion or would it have sounded crap? PS. With G-string i mean the third string on the guitar, nothing else.

*RIFF OF THE DAY* FAQ is released once a week *RIFF OF THE WEEK NOW*

Leave it to Ola to take a cute little princess aesthetic and make it METAL (torture! pain!)

Hola Ola! Do you have plans to do collabs with other Youtube guitarists or if not then is there anyone you would like to do something with? P.S Love the videos and you have definitely become one of my new guitar heroes!

Hey Ola, I just saw your case video and I'd like to know if you loosen your strings when traveling, or do something with the guitar besides putting it in the case.

Babe, plz make this guitar happen ! S1.6ETLB LTD – LIME BURST MATTE in ¡7 STRINGS WITH EVERTUNE TOO!, the most beautiful guitar ever created !!!! i loved it !!!

Ola you're going to have fun carrying all your equipment up those flimsy folding attic stairs. Hopefully you can build a real staircase and maybe even pop up one side of the roof to make a dorm good luck in the new house looking forward to seeing the new man cave.

Did you change your twitter since this was posted? to @olaenglund I recently discovered you when getting into logic and recording guitars after not playing for years. I am now a huge fan as we share a a similar background in getting into playing ie bolt thrower -nirvana days, similar tastes. Sad you didn't finish RDR2 but glad you played it. I joined up and am looking forward to watching some live shenanigans.

Hey Ola, what do you think about Gruv Gear stuff? Like fret wraps and cases. Have you ever had the chance to try something out and if so do you think it is worth the money? Love the vids and keep up the BURPS

Hi ola- “who does all your album cover work?”

Ola, will Solar ever make a bass? Don’t leave us hanging. I love my Baritone, but would love a bass. Let’s get this done.

Bummed that i can't get logic for Windows... Is there another software you know of that is just as good but for Windows?

Hi ola! Im was hoping you could recommend me a high gain amp, it can be combo or a head also a cab recommendation would be very appreciated. Hopefully not to expensive

The Black Dahlia Murder? Thoughts?

Hey ola, just curious would you have taken the cannibal corpse spot if they had offered it to you with their recent opening?

Ola, I love your new guitar E1.7FBB, I always wanted a Explorer body with 7 strings, but why did you made the guitar with 22 frets like all the other brands? why not 24? please fix that, and I'll buy one, or maybe two!

Hey Ola, snoochi booches, boo boo kitty fuck. Keep up the shweeeeeet content! constantly keeping me motivated. Also, do some shweet shweeps for us?

Ola, I'd love to see one of your reviews on either a Victory Kraken head or a V4 Kraken pedal preamp.

Ola, I just became a fan of your channel, but more important, your personality. Keep rockin, bud. Anyways, will you or have you ever used a BOSS SY-300? I love how it's an analog synthesizer, as well as act as a multi-fx unit.

Ola! When you record guitar with an amp (or AX8 in my case) through an interface, how much of the volume is coming from your amp compared to the volume of the interface? I currently have my AX8 output volume all the way up and my interface's channel volume up only a few notches. Trying to find a good balance. Thanks!

Hi Ola! Any chance of a Solar Acoustic Guitar? Or any offers to do clinics in Central America?

Hey Ola, how did you crack your ultra HD monitor?

I proposed to my wife in NY TIME SQUARE Christmas of 2017


You should give a Swedish , nontouring band called The Project hate MCMXCIX a listen. Their new album Death Riual Covant. Your probably going to have ta buy it? Your awesome! Long live Sweden!

Ola "moves arms a lot while answering questions" Englund

Hi Ola! Big fan of your stuff, something random just happened recently so I thought I could share it with you. Basically, there's this big kardashian wannabe dickhead in my class who treats everyone like absolute shit and it was music and I was allowed to play my guitar in one of the practice rooms so I just jammed along to some pantera songs playing on the computer. Next thing you know the dickhead bursts in for no reason and ignorantly says 'Why does that music sound like a dying cat and who is that fat fuck playing that guitar thing?' (she points at shot of dimebag). I got a bit annoyed but tried to keep calm and said 'It's called Metal and that's Dimebag Darrell, one of the greatest guitarists of all time.' So being that absolute dick she is she started saying stuff like 'He's some fat fucktard who's trying to be cool', 'It's satanic' and 'why can't you be like Drake'. I said getting more triggered 'Look, I don't talk shit and don't mind the trendy stuff you're into but just because metal isn't as popular and is different to what you enjoy, you really don't need to talk shit also stop talking shit about dimebag, he is such an inspiriation to many people and was murdered which effected so many people, also he's not fat, now could you please leave?' Then she said the most unforgivable thing. *'That fucking bitch deserved it!*' Now I was PISSED and shouted *'GET THE FUCK OUT YOU FUCKING KARDASHIAN WORSHIPPING PREPLORD PIECE OF SHIT!!!'* So my friends and other classmates overheard and went insane at the fact I 'dissed' her or something. I'm only like 14 so I'm pretty sure that 'diss' sucked. She angrily walked out and I said as a pantera reference 'WALK ON HOME!' So yeah just thought I could share that crappy story. but anyways, you're awesome, good wishes to you and your family and have an amazing day. :)

Hey Ola! We all know you love toight guitar sounds and kittens as well as fairies, obviously. But how do you feel when it gets as grim and grungy as Primitive Man? Greetings from Germany - Peer

Hejsan, Ola! Have you ever heard of these two most insane technical death metal bands from Sweden: Spawn Of Possession ( from Kalmar) and Visceral Bleeding (from Malmö)? In my humble opinion, both of them (although now being inactive) remain very unique in their sound/structures/ideas and both have set a bar for tech death sky high. Swedish kings of technicality, hands down. What do you think about their music? If you haven't listened to them, then at least check out the song "Where Angels Go Demons Follow" by Spawn Of Possession. Tack!

Ola, first of all, you rock man. You’re the tone master!! My question is, have you ever listened to the band Throwdown? I know you’re a huge Pantera fan and songs like Pyre and Procession and This Continuum have a strong Pantera feel. Just wondering. Much love and respect!!

What gauge strings do you use? Ever experiment with using a bass string on a guitar?

Bass player exe. "file not found"

Wait, "it's illegal to punch children in Sweden", do you mean that's legal to punch "non-children" in Sweden?

check out brazilian guitarrist Silas Fernandes the demon called algorythim

Hey Ola, cheers from Guatemala, now that have your own house, will you finally pee in the shower while taking a bath?

Hey Ola, What do you think of Buckethead as a guitarist? I think he's a demigod.

Faen! Hvorfor har jeg ikke hørt på Freak Kitchen før!? Det er jo dritfett! :P Thanks for having Mr. Eklundh for coffee!


Hello Ola, my girlfriend left her tablet laying around unattended, so I have subscribed her to your channel. I think everybody should make their girlfriend's an Ola subscriber, P.S. I love your face. Hello from Yorkshire

what's with the arrow? now i cant stop looking at the dot...

Hey Ola! How do you manage your time so well?

Hellola what's your approach in "finalizing" the ultimate version of a good riff? I often start with what I think is a good idea and then jam on it, and I come up with a million different variations and nuances I can't just stop and say "ok, this is the riff, no more changes".

Hi Ola ! Are your bowel movements regular? Does it chug?

Hey Ola, will there be 8 string Solar models in the future? Also, you should do an 8 string riff for riff of the day!

Hello Ola. You might find interesting that you're featured in akinator.com. Greetings from Argentina!

I noticed the new solar models have Solar branded tuners. How do they compare to Grover tuners?

Twitter sucks.

Hi Ola, Do you know a music genre - "New Retro Wave" / "Dark Synth"? Bands like: Perturbator, Dynatron, Trevor Something, Mega Drive, Kavinsky... It's not metal, but it getting more and more recognition. For example OST for "Drive" movie. Greetings from Israel

can ola do a truffle shuffle?

Hi Ola! As a long time The Haunted fan (and yours as well) I was a little skeptical when I read you were joining the band, but I was really blown away by Exit Wounds, it has probably become my favourite album in the bands discography (and I also love Strenght in Numbers). I love how you brought your influence in the band's sound without drowning it, but as a beautiful added value to it, can't wait to see you guys live (haven't had a chance since you joined the band, unfortunately). My question is what is your favorite The Haunted album that you did NOT play on? Cheers from Italy!

Gave a like, unsubbed just so I could sub, and am only commenting for whatever boost it will give simply for the comment that twitter is the worst platform.

Hey Ola will you make an Iceman style guitar and will you call it the Polar Solar?

Can you tell us more about how you created the Solar guitars, how you choose the manufacturer, how much is it till the day you to create a guitar to the day it's produced. Was it easy to ask the money to the bank (or find the money/partners)... Well, and the last question : does a Randy Rhoads shape is planned ? Thanks.

Ola, after playing drums for 15 years and then switching to guitar (about 10 months now) I was wondering how often did you practice scales when you were new? And how long did you practice them during a session? Thanks buddy

Hey Ola, what's the difference between the A1 and A2 series? I've been peeking at the Solar site for a while now, and price doesn't seem to be the distinguishing factor.

Hey Ola, please subsrice to Pewdiepie

Have you tried the Axe FX 3 yet?

For the very little police violence that actually happens in the U.S. people sure love focusing on it :p

Oh great Ola the all mighty answerer! Do you think that it's practical to use a PC based rig for gigs? Is it really necessary to have a amp if you get the sound you want from pedals and IR's from that PC? Greetings from the Dominican Republic

The Russian name is "Pavel Goncharov"

Greetings Ola! I have spent the last years immersed in the folk music of my country, playing the portuguese guitar and bagpipes, but in the last few months I decided to play the electric guitar again, which takes me to what is probably the best question in your faq: I was always into metal so that is essentialy the type of sound I am going for. Temporarily I am plugging a japanese Les Paul from the 70's (not a bad guitar actualy) through a 2x30w Marshall valvestate using an electro-harmonix Metal Muff or the infamous Boss mt2 (not ashamed to say it, its a good pedal). I attempt to achieve a tight heavy sound but annoyingly, sound definition goes down the drain when I play distorted riffs with more than just the basic diads. What are the possible key factors causing that? Also, I will change guitar and amp soon... thinking about getting a Dual Rectifier or maybe a Peavey 6505, but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by so many tone possibilities. Can you please break down the fundamental ingredients to achieve an absolute-killer-heavy as fuck-chugging tone? Types of pick-up in combination with the right amp, etc? Thanks for the inspiration, and congrats for the awesome work! All the best to you and your family! Tack sa mycket!

Pozdravy Ola, have you checked out Anthem or Star Citizen yet?

Geez, the people messaging you didn't proofread at all!

Howdy fella Ola! How do you feel about Thrash Metal? Like it, hate it? Have you ever heard of Power Trip? They're my fav Thrash band ever! Would be cool if you gave em a listen! Also, it's the 3rd time I've been asking this so if you don't wanna answer this question or already answered it in a previous FAQ I didn't watch cuz I'm dumb just tell me please so I can stop asking it in every FAQ's comment section lmao. luv ur vids bro keep it up

I love your opinion towards music lyrics. Its the exact reason I will never listen or like Country Music. Why I love Metal and Bands like Priest and Maiden.

Hey Ola. Shave you ugly Metalhead. Love your vids. thanks

DAMN IT OLA!!! I didn't know you were coming out with a single cut. I was planning on getting one of your guitars and now I'm gonna have to get two of them. Why did you do this to me?!! hahaha

macaco soup uma delicia

Hey ola really appreciate your videos very helpful and entertaining. But can you do tutorial on your set up on how you record your guitar and and how you edit the video .. thanks really appreciate on your response ...

Commodore 64 shirt ftw !!

Parts of Cerberus have a real Jeff Loomis vibe, I love it.

@Chris Morgado I totally wouldn't mind doing an album with Jeff. Next time you see him let him know I'm down.

I would of loved to hear Chris Cornell sing with Dream Theatre....best voice ever....apart from Freddie Mercury

Ola, This is Rajesh from the UK. When can we expect V guitar with fishman fluence :-) ?

I couldn't write a song about Rabbit shit but I could write one about Bullshit cause there's plenty of it being spouted online.....

yup we do. i play bass. a jazz bass 70 :o

Just listened to the new single. Sounds like The Haunted done different. Makes sense yes, but, very difficult to do at this sage in the game. Good job. And anyone who disagrees with my opinion can take theirs and shove it up something..
