On some 3 string sweeping your fingers like don`t even move! That was totally awesome! And wweeps sounds mad at those tempos
Awesome stuff Emir!!!
Wow killer lesson Emir!!
Brutal playing, even Yngwie would agree this was great solo
I love how you remove your hand at the end with the delay going on. Awesome stuff Emir !
Very cool lesson Emir!
I predict that this will be one of the most popular ones for this month. :-)
uhhh ok... very nice, but i think ill wait a year or so before i try this one
Awesome lesson Emir! I think I'm gona learn this lesson, too
The greatest thing is that I hear Yngwie with strong Emir influences Brilliant!!!
Amazing lesson Emir!
An Yngwie Lesson from you was overdue...great work!
Killer lesson Emir, great job !
Killer - awesome lesson! I've been getting into Yngwie a lot lately and this is perfect.
Change that degree of difficult from a 9 to a 10, bro! Emir did it again !
OK, here's me watching that lesson:-
Awesome stuff Emir!!!
That's just about the fastest alternate picking I've ever seen. Great job, man! Intense skill required for this lesson that's for sure.
wow I would start this lesson immediately but I would probably be old before I finisehd haha awesome lesson!
Awesome playing and lesson Emir
That was pure Awesomeness Emir you \m/ \m/
Awesome shredding man, blazing speed, great technique! You rock!
Awesome lesson Emir ,you play those 16th triplets cleaner than Yngwie.
Insane, lesson keep them coming please!
Wow!, I'll play that lesson... in another life . Awesome!
Just brilliant, leaves you paralysed. You are right up there with Yngwie himself.
I guess I really have to practice more... awesome lesson Emir
Thank you guys I just want to say that I am actually playing only 2 scales all the way. It's like a bunch of licks connected together and trust me when I say that anyone can play this with some practicing. You'd be surprised that this is not that difficult. Straight 4/4 rhythm, and some fast AP which needs some more time spent with the guitar.
Wow, some finger killer lesson you've got there Emir.
Nice Yngwie chopps!
Amazing lesson Emir!
Awesome as Always Emir....I might put this one in my routine since I am in need of some AP chops!!! You ROCK!!
It's your standard top notch qualtiy again!
Yeah you say it's only a bunch of licks - but very well structured and the execution is top notch... this solo is truly fantastic
Incredible, more interesting than yngwie himself in my opinion! very well done, thanks a lot
Yngwie Malmsteen solo on my bday? NICE!
haha great lesson
Just been blown away man. Greaaaaaaat
This is guitarheaven
It think it must be level 10 instead of 9
It will take me ages to learn this.
Awesome. I could cry
Emir, you're on another level dude, great lesson
Cool soloing Emir
Killer licks !
Best Yngwie-lesson so far on GMC IMO
Thank you guys
Good job bro!
Killer job Emir! Going to learn it.
And I agree with mhskeide, it is the best Yngwie lesson here.
We want more of your lessons.
Please a Skolnick one!
I could never manage to be sober enough to even attempt that.... nice playing.
Wow! That's amazing!
I suppose you locked yourself away in your room for three years and practiced for 12 hours a day! (I know a guy who did that, and he can play like this too. It obviously works!).
I'm having enough trouble mastering the major and minor scales - (or should that be Ionian and Aeolian modes!), let alone these others! I love this neoclassical stuff, so I'm gonna have to learn them! Is it just a case of practicing for years until it all sinks in, or are there any helpful shortcuts?!!
To kevvyg: Ahahah who knows, maybe..
And what`s the problem with Ionian? Learn it along all fretboard and you will knew 7 scales at once,learn harmonic minor and it will be another 7
Check Ionian Speedpicking in Pavel Denisjuk`s lessons, and on youtube video about modes by Vinnie Moore
I know what you mean about the major scale along the length of the fretboard - 7 modes. What are the 7 scales that the harmonic minor produces? Are they just harmonic minor versions of the 7 'standard' modes? I've been slacking a bit on the scales I hate to admit, but they are coming slowly. I guess they just have to 'sink in'...
This piece is very typical of neoclassical, and Malmsteen in particular. Out of the scales that are used, which is the most 'Malmsteeny'?! When it's speeding along, certain notes leap out at you that shout 'Malmsteen', if you know what I mean, but they're hard to pin down. Which are the 'Malmsteen' notes, and what scale do they belong to? I've had a dabble with the Mixolydian mode, and as we all know, that sounds very Spanish - I think it's the minor 2nd that plays a big part there, and it can also sound pretty neoclassical.
Is the major 7th of the harmonic minor the one that identifies neoclassical?
I'm trying to get up to speed with blues at the moment, but I still try the odd bit of shredding!!! These guys make it look so easy!!!
ps How do you get emoticons into these comments?!
OMG i`ll go practice more too, i want play like that
Cool, i didn`t know real puprose for melodic minor modes, so jazz you say..
So I guess after the major and minor, harmonic minor is the next one to learn for that neoclassical touch!
guitar for sale because i quit
As always, very exceptional playing on your part - timing is impeccable. This lesson is great -
there are many great instructors on this site that are helping me expand my skills, but moreover I am very impressed with your skill level as well as several others. I don't have time to leave feedback for every one, but dude, you are well renowned with me as you should be among all those who appreciate good sound - and that's what it's all about when it comes down to it. Anyway, thanks. Music rocks - never give up...
I'm not nearly capable of playing this... So, following my new motto in life, I'm gonna learn it!
I'll give you feedback on my process in a couple of weeks
Very Malmsteen !
Well played, very Yngwie awesome job
Awesome lesson! Maybe you can do some lessons on the modes of minor scales. Do they still sound good in real musical context? Or are they too removed from regular scales to tell?
love this lesson Emir!
I am sure all of you heard about Yngwie Malmsteen. He was a huge inspiration when I was discovering shred and neoclassical style of playing. When he released his first solo album the new guitar revolution had started. The way people approached rock/metal guitar playing wasn't the same anymore. He introduced a stunning technique with arpeggios, picking and the melody. It had been done before him but not in such way where people got so addicted to his spicey playing approach. You can check out his masterpiece albums like: Rising Force, Odyssey, Trilogy, Seventh Sign... All of these albums helped me develop my technique to a much higher level than I had before I heard of Yngwie.
This lesson introduces some of his non-stop used licks like 3 and 5 string minor arpeggios, 3 string diminished arpeggio, harmonic minor scales, phrygian dominant scales and some very fast runs using both of these. Sometimes I played A natural minor in combination with harmonic minor. The chord progression is very simple. You have an A5 power chord which is actually (A minor), then E5 (major) and Bdim7 which is still somehow related to the E5 chord. I used A Harmonic and Natural Minor scales all the way but when the chord changes to E I play E Phrygian Dominant which is again the same scale as A Harmonic Minor but in this case it is the 5th mode of A Harmonic Minor.
I hope you will find some useful licks in this one. If you want more of Yngwie's licks you can check out this forum topic where I left 15 audio licks in style of Yngwie together with the Guitar Pro file.
