I hope he does some US tour dates

He's probably my favorite player and i've still never seen him live

I was going to see him at the house of blues a few years ago and the show ended up getting canceled.

Well, just because I am looking at this in an extreme way, doesn't mean that true improv can't exist. I look at improv as being free of mind, just like I said in the shred chat thread. Anything that you think up, you play on the guitar, not necessarily having your licks, but just translating the music in your head to play out with your fingers/feet/whatever on guitar.

Okay that last one I find hard to believe. You'd have to be pretty close to him to hit the pickup selector. And I think I even saw a video of him demoing his signature guitar and he said that he had the knobs and switch dis-connected so he doesn't change his tone while playing.

My mistake, I think he just has the knobs dis-connected. Nevertheless no way he could be that close to reach up and switch his selector for him.

yah i could understand the dials disconnected
yeh it would be quite hard to flick the selector, unless yngwie leaned down or it was in a REALLY small club

I'm pretty sure he has the tone knobs and the middle setting on the switch disconnected because he never uses them, I can't remember where I heard that though...

Yeah that is true he disconnects all of his tone controls

I'm pretty sure he wires his selector so he can go from neck to bridge and then bridge and neck together.

Anything that you think up, you play on the guitar, not necessarily having your licks, but just translating the music in your head to play out with your fingers/feet/whatever on guitar.


Well, taken to those extremes ( ), it'd have to be a combination of motions/frets/notes that you have never ever done before to be called true improvisation, no?

Yes, yes... Taken to ridiculous extremes, but you started it.

But on a more serious note... I don't think you can be free of mind. Your licks influence the stuff you hear in your head. The stuff you listened to before you play influences the stuff you hear in your head. The way you feel influences the stuff in your head.

Of course, it's any improviser's and indeed musician's dream to be able to play what they hear in their head instantly, but unless you're playing over a slow really simple blues progression (and even then, considering the very limited melodic choice in general blues licks and thus what you'd probably hear in your head), or are Guthrie Govan on performance enhancers, it's just not realistic.

You need a bit of preparation. Like Charlie Parker said: learn the changes, then forget them.

Yeah, I suppose you're right. Especially about your influences affecting the way you play, I know that all too well.

How are you at improv?

I think I remember hearing Satriani or Vai saying the same thing about Music Theory or modes or something.

I don't know. I don't think it's for me to decide. People are welcome to make up their own opinions.

The only answer I can give to that is: not as good as I'd like to be.

I hadn't listened any Yngwie songs for a long long time, but today I stumbled upon the G3: Live in Denver dvd and damn... I still enjoy watching and hearing Yngwie play. He's just an extraordinary musician and live performer; there's always fire and passion in his performances.

His playing changed after his car wreck I know that for sure

If you watch really old vids like Alcatrazz stuff on youtube his hands and fingers move around the fretboard in such a different way.

It really doesn't look the same as the present day Yngwie
