Hi, I'm studying Yngwie Malmsteen as a specialist subject in college, and I'm releasing questionnaire's to gather different information, if you could kindly answer I will be really pleased.

At the moment, I'm trying to find out which artists of the modern day music scene that Yngwie Malmsteen has influenced.

Please help!

All your replies will be extremely helpfull.

Are you aware of the guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen?
Do you like the music Malmsteen composes?
Do you think Malmsteen influences a wide variety of modern day guitarists?
What style guitarists do you think Yngwie has influenced the most?
Can you hear influence in Luca Turilli (Rhapsody)?
Can you hear influence in Sinister Gates? (Avenged Sevenfold)
Can you hear influence in Alexi Laiho’s music? (Children of Bodom)
Can you state any guitarists where Yngwie’s style is present?
"Molly Wants An Attacker, Think I Should Offer Her One First." - If only Kurt was metal too...

Wouldn't know

Can you hear influence in Sinister Gates? (Avenged Sevenfold)
Not really

Can you hear influence in Alexi Laiho’s music? (Children of Bodom)
Little bit

Your artist selection is short and a little vague.
When it comes to being aware of him perhaps a list of his songs would be better so you could see who only knows the popular ones and who the true fans are.
