Good pun

Anyway, I hate people dissing Malmsteen. The guys great and makes amazing music, so original etc.

Perhaps if they actually took the time to read interviews etc... Oh well I doubt they can even name a song.

He's on tour in July so I might/hope to see him!!
#84
The other thing I notice is how people praise players like Alexi laiho or the guys from trivium and then turn around and say Malmsteen is overrated and a terrible player...

Then you wonder where all of those licks came from in the first place?

You guessed it Yngwie

Thats the problem with alot of the younger people they havent a clue of the source material where all of this stuff came from in the first place. If they did they'd have alot more appreciation for his playing.
#85
yeh i hate when people bash yngwie too

the guy is quite possibly one of the most original players i've ever heard

it really sucks that most of yngwie's songs have those cheesy vocals in them. he really needs to do a fully instrumental album, he is such a great neo classical guitarist even if he is a prick (he is nothing compared to jason becker though)

do you mean in levels of prickishness or skill?

because somebody else recently said to me that becker was a sack

Becker may have been a better sweep picker than Yngwie, but overall he was not as technically skilled.
#94
i havent heard much of yngwies stuff. But what i have heard is Arpeggios from hell and rising force pretty awesome stuff

Yeah I agree

Yngwie's got the smoooothness to his playing

yngwie is actually so smooth and it makes it sound REALLY effortless

Yes, that's what I really like about his songs, specially in Odyssey, for example Deja Vu or Dreaming have that smooth yet awesome solo that sounds easy yet is hard.

Quote by MetalMusicianAl
how does he play rising force >_<. anybody got any tips? i pull-off,but i don't understand how to play the intro to the solo.

I believe its a 2 string pattern

You have to practice getting the sweeping motion down

I like some of the things he writes but I don't like him for some reason. His facial expressions and everything. I don't know what...also did anyone notice a bad anchoring habit? It looks like he anchors...Watch the ring finger.

Yukk, what a mess. Find some 80s footage of him.


I know it's not that good but compared to some of the stuff that isn't either 80s or very new it's not that bad; he's getting better, or at least I think so.

Yeah I thought so too


Sounded like he's getting his chops back up to par, maybe working on this new album has made him woodshed lil more.
#104
I think modern Yngwie is really getting up to speed. Those guitar show things never do the guitarists justice for a whole host of reasons.

Saw some recent ones of MR Gilbert, they were OKAY.. saw him live, HOLY ****!

Is anyone seeing him on his UK tour? I have two days to get something sorted.

Edit - I really wanna ****ing see Yngwie. I might go on my own?....

His technique is/was flawless, as far as I am concerned. The sound he has as others have said is almost effortless. Really great ****.

For the most part yeah and I don't care much about anchoring. I was just pointing it out.

Saw him last week. Man, does Ripper Owens have some great pipes... Unfortunately Yngwie overdid it on the delay pedal echo etude stuff and general wanking, more than the previous time I saw him. The bad mix didn't help either.

He's still much better than most of you give him credit for though, technically. YouTube videos don't cut it.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Yeah I wonder what made him start favoring so much verb & delay latley? Most all of his old material had a really clean signal

Last time I saw him he had like 20 Marshall full stacks and everything I could hear was Yngwie's guitar.

No... I don't mean he uses a lot of reverb or delay. I mean he does his echo etude thing, using a delay pedal.

Oh yeah for sure

I just meant most of the newer material I have seen is heavily saturated compared to his early live stuff
#113
MOTHER OF GOD.............

last night was insane
yngwie was on form and his cover of Rainbow was incredible!
"gates of babylon" FTW

i got my ticket signed afterwards without meeting him though
dick was "ill", so one item from each person was taken onto the bus
i had to fight to get a signed ticket back

Well, Yngwie inspired me to practice guitar, so he is overall my greatest influence and guitar hero even if i am over the whole 'neoclassical super shred' business.

I still remember the first time hearing his tone... mindblowing.

Then, his bends and vibrato. Flawless.


I still have his instructional dvds. Might whip them up sometime again to relieve some old memories.... sitting down with a metronome learning one string alt picking licks...

yah i remember when i first heard yngwie too

totally incredible
i mustve been about 15 i think
cause it was around the same time i got into racer x
Top lel.
#116
i dont think any shred i've heard since has had that mindblowing effect yngwie had on me.


Then again, if I'd never heard of Yngwie, and was exposed to Guthrie Govan first... things might have been different :p

nah ive never tried evil eye

i worked out most of "ill see the light tonight" by ear though, apart from the solo obviously!
i know some of far beyond the sun too, but theres no point claiming i can play it, cause im not even close to how good yngwie is haha

i'm not either, but you should try Evil Eye. It's really fun, and it sounds like you're a beast even though it's not that hard. But it's not easy either.....
