His tone on rising force is amazing IMO So smooth and crystal clear where you can hear everything perfectly.

I know when he came over to the U.S for the first time he was pretty cocky, when you are that young and you are that good I don't really blame him for being a little bit cocky. He was bringing something brand new to the table that would inspire just about everyone of the famous players we see in guitar world ect ect. As for him being a total jerk and an asshole I just don't see it. I've see so many photos of him talking with his fans speaking well on interviews and so on. I still think alot of guys were really jealous of his ability which manifests into **** talking.

Anyway some of my favorite playing of his is the Live Alcatrazz stuff. Theres some amazing playing on that and of course rising force, trilogy all the classics! I also love the solos on Now your ships are burned, IMO thats some amazing phrasing taking place for being improvised.

And of course the vibrato

Now Your Ships are burned is/was improvised? That's some of my favourite playing from him, I'm even more impressed now.

Edit: I agree on the vibrato thing as well, I was just watching an instructional video and his vibrato really is stellar.

Yeah most if all of his playing is improvised

Thats why live nothing ever sounds truly the same haha

He remembers the main motifs and hooks I'm sure, but the rest is on the fly.

I guessed that the live versions were improvved but I had no idea the studio takes were as well, I think I'm now a bigger fan than I was

I still refuse to be a stereotypical fanboy though

Yeah I remember him saying he'll do one take and keep it, if hes not really feeling it he'll go back and try another but its all improvised playing.

And likewise here, if I worshiped only one style and thing how would I ever get any better as a player. Thats why its critical to keep your ears and your mind open to as much as possible.

I liked his tone on the first few albums too. Nice and crystal clean, but now its a bit weird, I don't know what it is about his tone now, but I don't like it that much.

Yeah I noticed that too

The older ones he seemed to have a more layed back EQing, I sense a stronger treble and presence in his tone now then the old days. Its not as smooth as it used to be because of the high end bite.

Ditto.

You summed up what i wanted to say about him.

Also, I really liked him when he was younger. There was just something about him when he was an up and coming star.

Also, you guys saying he improvises everything, you have to remember he has his "key" licks that he uses that make up his style, and he has done/played his licks A LOT. So, it's not all really improvised.

And you think this doesn't count for everyone, from Frank Zappa to Charlie Parker to Liszt?

+1

Everyone has licks that they use because for the most part improvising any kind of speed is next to impossible if you want to keep it clean.

It's kind of obvious.

What?

Why would you even say that if you agree with me? That IS improvising. Anything else, and you're just being pedantic.

I'm confused, I was never disagreeing in the first place. All I said is that Yngwie probably has his licks that he uses a lot when he improvises and that all of the stuff he does probably isn't improvised. Everybody has to make up their own licks, well maybe they don't have to, but you get my point right?

Sure, I get your point.

I just think your point isn't relevant at all.

What's colloquially called improvising in music incorporates and includes a musician's arsenal of licks.

Well heres a juicy story for you. The third time i saw yngwie about 5 years ago he was in Norfolk Virginia. it was crucial. i was right up to the stage and mind you, i had eaten 3 doses and i was trippin hardddd. hes in the middle of this hugeeeee improv. he breaks a string on his guitar so hes like **** it, he throws it behind his back, his gear guy catches it and then throws him another (like 1/6 out of his arsenal of sigs.) yngwie catches this one and returns to the shreddery. later in the show, yngwie is shredding at such super-sonic speeds, that his middle finger gets cut on his high E string. im right up front, so i get splattered with blood. i now have, on my wall, a piece of my jeans that i cut out, stained with his blood. also, during far beyond the sun, right before the solo in it, i knew he would have to go from the bridge pickup to his neck pickup for his juicy sweeps, so i flicked it for him. he winked at me.. haha. then at the end i gave him a hug. good show.

I suppose, but then it isn't true improv?

Or am I just being stupid ?

Which is why I said you're being pedantic, thinking that.

Going to those extremes, true improvisation doesn't exist.
