if u want to learn some cool stuff, check out the Yngwie Malmsteen. his stuff is really hard, but in the Yngwie Malmsteen workshop power tab i found here, there are some scales and sweep arpeggios. i have had good sucess with my playing by doing the lessons he has . but just fyi, most of his stuff is written in a harmonic minor scale. try it out

The problem I have with Yngwie is that pretty much all his stuff is harmonic minor. I'm talking modes, lessons, chords, other scales, etc.

umm for weird scales look into joe satriani, not neo classical though.

To me, neoclassical does not exist. It just doesn't! There is no substance to the genre. Therefore, you won't be able to find much on it, since it is pretty much all about sweeping and harmonic minor scales....
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

He uses Phrygian quite a bit actually.

Are you joking? Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not a genre. Have you ever actually listened to classical music? Do you have any idea how technically proficient some of it is? Of course neo-classical is fast
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Yes, I listen to CLASSICAL music. That's where it's at. I'm a classical guitarist of about 2 years now, and I have a fair understanding of what's goin on. I can tell you this - Bach > Malmsteen in musicality and ability.

Regardless, I say it doesn't exist because it's pretty much boiled down classical music played really fast.

I'm not trying to bash your "genre" or whatever, I'm just saying there is bound to be very little on it specifically because there is only a few people associated with the entire sound....

I suggest to the threadstarter you learn about "old classical" music. It's what the guys you look up to did, so why not go to the source?
