Tellef got his first guitar in 1969. He can still remember the pain from the sore fingers on his left hand. And the price of the Suzuki steel stringed guitar (145 NOK). Singing Dylan songs in Leif’s basements (where Leif had made an altar for Dylan’s honor) and playing with the neighborhood band Bestum Pelsverk (later Celeste) gave him a solid rock and roll basis for the years to come. In the 80ties he played and recorded with Ung Pike Forsvunnet, Duck Spin and Libido and wrote and performed music for theater plays. In 1987 he removed the frets from a Yamaha SG electric that he rarely used. The guitar was a much better instrument without without the frets on, but after using it for two tracks on two different records (on «Wake me when the Moon comes up» by Duck Spin and on «Libido»), he almost did not play it for another 10 years. When he returned it was going to be almost all about the combination of the unfretted instrument and improvisation.
