GMC Forum _ CHILL OUT _ Need Help With Malmsteen's "dreaming"

Posted by: Nobody Apr 9 2008, 09:45 PM

Hey guys! :]

Now I need some bit of advice on "Dreaming" by Yngwie. I have much problems with the intro of the song because I can't play it perfectly in time. So any advice or suggestions or tips would be very welcome, because now it's very important. It's a matter of keeping a great guitarist with tons of experience in the band. Because if he likes how we're gonna do it together he'll stay. If not we have to find another guitarist. So ANY kind of tips would be very welcome :]

If I remember correct the acoustic intro on Dreaming is kind a "rubato"
so you just have to follow his "feel" and phrasing,
there is no much of "rhythm" in there. smile.gif

Actually that was what I thought so I decided to change it a bit. Because Dreaming is a really emotional song with lots of feeling and the way Yngwie played it is the way he felt it. So I decided to listen to it many times and then to play it similarly and keep the phrasing but the way I feel the song.
That's for the intro and the solo though. I'll play the other parts like they're in the song because they're quite easy.

Thanks, Muris. I'm really glad such a great guitarist is around to give advice when needed. I surely learned a lot from you :]
