  • In this lesson we are going to look at the amazing guitar style of Yngwie Malmsteen. We will use some of his favourite licks, arpeggios, and classically oriented phrases.
    Pay attention to his many picking techniques, such as alternate and sweep picking, and his scale choices. You should incorporate this techniques and scales to your playing and composing.

    Scale choices:
    In this exercise we are going to use A natural minor and A harmonic minor scales.
    A harmonic minor: A (I) – B (II) – C (bIII) – D (IV) – E (V) – F (bVI) – G# (VII)
    A natural minor: A (I) – B (II) – C (bIII) – D (IV) – E (V) – F (bVI) – G (bVII)

    Tempo: 220 bps

    Note Value:
    Triplets are used in this exercise. When a note is divided in three equal parts instead of two is called triplet. A triplet occupies the same lengh of time than two notes of the same value.

    Backing tracks:
    I’ve recorded 5 backing tracks at different tempos for you to practice the lesson. Use the metronome to practice every part.

    Work hard!
