A Guitar World Office Visit from Children of Bodom

It's been more than four years since we started filming lessons and interviews with musicians for our CD-ROM, and one of the very first subjects we had here at GW HQ for an on-camera lesson was Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom. Alexi's been up here a few times since then, but Oct. 9, 2008, was the first time COB co-guitarist Roope Latvala was on hand as well.

The two guitarists came by for a lesson on how to play "Blooddrunk" with our very own Matt Scharfglass, as well as a new photo shoot with ace photographer Angela Boatright. The band was in town for one of the final dates on their current tour with Between the Buried and Me, Black Dahlia Murder and special guests for this one show, Testament.

Alexi had a bit of a rough start to the day...the 1:00 call time was a little on the early side for such a hard-partying night owl, and he needed a little nappy between the lesson and photo shoot. But with a little rest, some pizza and beer, Alexi was right as rain by mid afternoon.
