Hey guys! I would like to share a video that won't necessary answer the question "how to play fast" but that I think will give you more information about licks and scales that I used a lot in my new 40 Power Metal bands in one song: Harmonic Minor, Phrygian Major and Phrygian.



He shows the examples very fast, but you can also use GMC Malmsteen lessons for a deeper analysis:

I watched the video while folding my football team's shirts, shorts and socks, so I didn't pay 100% attention, but I think there's some nice little info in there.

Yeah, that's one thing I noticed as well. His instructional stuff comes with books though I think, so I guess that's easier to follow.

True, but somehow, I was never attracted to learning that style, even when I was a teenager obsessed with the idea that I need to play fast - I was more attracted to Satriani and Vai due to the diversity in their music. Malmsteen was too much... the same all the time - that's how I was perceiving things at that point smile.gif

Because of this thread, I re-watched the 'Arpeggios from hell' 'instructional video' laugh.gif It astonished me as a teenager, but now, it amuses me a lot, because I realize he couldn't teach guitar to save his life laugh.gif He is an amazing player, but that's that wink.gif

Oh, I remember that. I still think it sounds quite awesome for what it is though. I'm not a big Malmsteen fan though.

Mesmerising playing...but I don't really like neo classical or Malmsteen...Theres plenty of slower music out there that gives you time to enjoy it. blink.gif

I noticed the same thing actually. smile.gif You'd need some serious side material/notes to get a handle on what he's playing IMHO. His version of "Slow" is somewhere around "Medium Shred" I think smile.gif

In Malmsteen's case there is no slow laugh.gif his cars say the same thing:
