Rolf Jardemark

A top guitarist from Sweden, Rolf Jardemark is a versatile player with a long series of recordings for the Imogena label. Jardemark started on guitar when he was 12. ”I bought my first guitar from a friend for one dollar! I had no teacher. I started with a blues record and a chord book.” Inspired by Barney Kessel, Larry Carlton and Pat Metheny, Jardemark also learned about jazz from Peter Almqvist when they both worked in a guitar store. Jardemark went to music college when he was 16 and after that went on to The Academy of Music in Gothenburg - studying classical guitar but playing jazz at night
