His tone sucks in this video, and I was wondering why, and then I saw that he was plugged into a Fender Metalhead. Now this amp is almost legendarily bad on UG, but here's proof that even a pro like Yngwie can't make it sound good. He usually has amazing tone, but it sucks here. He also seems drunk as hell, as he's really sloppy, too. He's usually so clean.

HEY!! I love Yngwie's music, and you know what?


YOU KNOW WHAT??!!


I agree. The tone is too "thin", to much treble, it sounds like needles in your ear or something. And his performance sucked too. Oh well. He was a much better player in his younger days anyway, when he probably tried harder, now after so long it seems like he lost motivation.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Fack, what amp is that? That's awful...Yngwie is incredible, but that amp makes him sound like a complete guitar noob.

Sorta, but he still kicks ass. He's almost as clean as Paul Gilbert, and he has a beautiful tone. It's just that his drunkenness and the Metalhead that made that performance bad.
#22
I hate Yngwie, stupid asshole does nothing but show off his crappy, unprecise guitar playing. Show a REAL guitar player play through that amp, like Michael Akerfeldt and I garantee that it will sound good.

Michael Akerfeldt> Yngwie Malmsteen

Ow my freakin ears!

I have heard him so much better than this. I am a huge Yngwie Fan.

Argh! That amp is awful!

I don't know why he has such an ego, he's not very precise in his playing and his tone sucks. Then again, I've always hated the "strat" tone, it's WAY too thin and pisses me off.

God, shut the fuck up, you elitist prick. I've only seen a handful of your posts, and you annoy me more than my little brother. It's unbelievable, your immature little "Emo Dies" club only furthers that annoyance.

Malmsteen had a horrible tone, but he is in no way "not very precise".

He's not precise at all, it's really sloppy like bad diarrhea. And how am I an elitist for saying Yngwie sucks? It's a proven fact that he doesn't even make music, yet his ego is too big for his head. Seriously, Yngwie is a f*cking asshat that doesn't deserve to live, just like you. Stupid Yngwie fanboys, there's nothing more irritating
#30
Omg... he must've accidentally triggered the big head cheat. Can't say I like any of his monotonous (sp?) guitarplaying but that seemed even worse than usual.

You're an idiot

Show me this 'proven fact'

Show me proof that he (and others) don't deserve to live

I'm no fanboy. It's quite sad you're so pathetic, I'm not going to argue any further. So, I'll leave you to wallow in your own self-pity, you pathetic excuse of a human.

You know, I've been posting in these forums for a while, and I've read some pretty retarded comments over the years, but this ranks in the top 5 easily.

Seriously, I'm surprised your skull doesn't implode from the vacuum in your head.

Yngwie is one of the cleanest shred guitarists, second only to Gilbert.

He doesn't deserve to live? You sound like an 13 year-old, and some of the shit you've posted reinforces that assumption.

Yngwie is a decent guitarist; he's not my favourite, but I do enjoy a lot of his work. I'm speaking from an objective point of view, something you've clearly never tried.

He doesn't make music? Is that why he has a massive fan base and has written some beautiful ballads?

The_Casualty shouldn't have even referred to you as an elitist, because at least elitists know - on some level - what they're talking about; you clearly don't know anything.

technically, malmsteen doesnt actually use single coils, but it weird when he says he swears by em

Ew.

But Yngwie's still a class A Shredder. He was sloppy but don't forget, that's a very new performance. Guitarists get sloppier in their age and especially when they haven't been practicing, which is evident in Yngwie.
