    Does anyone know if Bjorn played guitar on Jotun?

    I don't think so.

    Transform this thread into a "let's all get together and figure out how to play Jotun on guitar thread" because my band needs that.

    mysongbook.com has a good jotun tab.
    but the reason i wanted to know is just because in this article in guitarworld a while back it said his shinning moment was "jotun" but I wasn't sure if he still played drums on that track or had switched to guitar

    Logic would dictate that if he was being interviewed by Guitar World, it'd be in reference to his guitar work on the track, right?

    In all likelyhood he played both drums and guitar on the studio version.

    Thanks for the pointer to the Jotun tab. I had figured out the main riff, but that was about it.

    I'd be suprised if he had played on the studio version since in the album sleeve it gives Jesper the entire songwriting credit.

    That doesn't matter, how often does Kirk Hammett get credited with songwriting despite the fact that he's played on every Metallica album, and is among the most highly regarded guitarists in the world? Pretty much never.
    All a songwriting credit means is exactly that, who wrote the song, not who performs it.

    Still this neither confirms or denies whether he did or didn't play on the recording. Regardless, both Jesper and Bjorn are very classy guitarists. :cool:

    It says Björn Gelotte - Drums

    From that I draw the conclusion that he played drums, and drums only.
