Kari Kasanen

Kari is the founder and senior partner of a Talent Partners consulting company. His guitar is the first production sample of Westend Deluxe Blues with Seymor Duncan humbuckers. Kari is a very nice and smart guy. No wonder he has successful company. This is what he wrote to us about himself:

Guitar playing and Flow experience

We are born with five senses. They  say that women have the sixth sense also, but who knows. During our childhood and the entire life our brain collects millions of pieces of information from the world outside us during every second. This information is gathered and understood in the inner parts of our brain. We can enjoy and experience the world by tasting, smelling, feeling, seeing and hearing.

In a rare moment of Flow we are able to forget the outside world, focus only on what are doing and experience a great moment on peacefulness and emotion.  To most of us Flow is completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing and learning. In flow the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand. The hallmark of flow is a feeling of spontaneous joy, even rapture, while performing a tasks.

Music has been in my life from the beginning. My father was an first class concert violinist in Viipuri ( St Petersburg ) . So probably I heard a lot of music already before I came to this real world. As young I was wild and sporty, so I was forced to attend  flute and music lessons in one the most valued schools in Finland, Tapiola School. Nominated Professor Erkki Pohjola as my music teacher. I did not have the talent of rare music virtuosos like many children in our school. But by hard work and training I grow up as a good and humble amateur musician.

My first instrument was and is flute, with 45 years of playing I consider myself as a good flutist. Few years ago I started to play piano, or Grand piano in fact,  which filled our living room. I hoped this would motivate our young son Jesper  to play music. I ended up training piano myself and my son having still more time in the golf courses.

Guitar came to my life four years ago. Already at school my wish had been to play guitar, so I thought finally my flow in music would come with guitar playing. My guitar hero was Mark Knopfler. Even with plenty of mathematical studies at the Technical university I was first shocked by the millions of variations and choices on how to play guitar.  I am on my road learning new every week. The great pleasure of life at this age is that you afford to have the best of equipment and toys. This also meant that my guitar has to be the best available. So I trusted my old school friend and holiday house neighbour Heikki Holvikari. Heikki’s Westend guitar makes my every guitar session an enjoyment and Flow experience.

Nice story, Where is the stuff related to thesse specific guitars ? Is it this phrase: "So I trusted my old school friend and holiday house neighbour Heikki Holvikari. Heikki’s Westend guitar makes my every guitar session an enjoyment and Flow experience." ? Raasepori 14.12.209
