    Yngwie Malmsteen

    This guy is definately my favourite guitarist. After the legendary shawn lane's (possibly the fastest guitarist of all time) death, only this guy comes close. Well, him and Steve Vai. But malmsteen just has better songs. =) Watch this video, it's only a minute long, and post what you think of him.

    Also, post your favourite song by him, if you listen to his stuff. I'm expecting either rising force or black star. :P

    I like him; he's pretty cool. Favourite tracks:

    Evil Eye
    Dreaming (Tell Me)
    Rising Force
    Hanger 18, Area 51
    Vengeance
    Fugue
    Blitzkrieg
    Baroque and Roll
    Far Beyond the Sun
    Adagio

    The only trouble is some of his solos sound the same or the same lick is used..it makes them sound quite samey. Also he can only seem to play fast. That's why I like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai better - different sounds, different styles of music and different speeds.

    That's about it..
    Even my hair gets in trouble..

    hmmmm...

    I like bach, and I like fast guitar. Therefore, I must like yngwie. He is probably the best at playing classical style music really fast with distortion <__<

    I only have rising force on my mp3 player, but I've heard alot of his other songs and sorta like them.

    There are faster guitar players, but I don't like most of them

    And playing on a scalloped fretboard (like yngwie does) is an aquired taste, but it can help you improve your speed, if you like it that is

    I'd like to turn this into an "AWESOME GUITARISTS" thread.

    Paul Gilbert
    John Petrucci (My favorite by far)

    I'll post more when my router decides to work...

    Want a sig like the one above? I am taking requests in my thread here...

    I just watched the video.. It looks like it was supposed to be a lesson video, but I fail to see how anyone could learn from that. It's just him showing off.
