Interviewer at 6:58 "Are you just doing straight alternate picking when you're?" Yngwie,"Not when I go to different strings." Interviewer,"What do you do?" Yngwie, "Uhm, I dunno, actually I haven't looked at that but we can look at it." widdly widdly widdly shreda shreda shred. laugh.gif
"For the lower things I think it's kinda like this ,but when I go to the next string it has to be kinda like, different."

Nice pull smile.gif Got a huge kick out of that Ahnuld vid smile.gif And yeah, the Yngwie documentary does sorta show how influential the guy was as a player. He's not a great instructor at all, but those are two very different things after all. Not all instructors are brilliant players, and vice versa. We are pretty lucky here @ GMC in that we have some really spiff players who are also pretty spiff instructors, like Cosmin!! smile.gif

Yngwie is an important part of Rock guitar history though. He literally changed music when he can on the scene. There were people doing similar stuff before him, but nobody did it with the degree of attitude and intensity that he had at the time. He started the "shred fest" so to speak smile.gif It's difficult to not acknowledge his contribution.

I do wish he could articulate himself a bit better though. Maybe as he gets older he will spend more time becoming a better instructor. As arthritis sets in, he won't be able to shred forever smile.gif

Thank you for your kind words Todd, tho I consider myself far from being that spiff tongue.gif! In my opinion, one of the guys out there who was them both going at a great level, would be Guthrie Govan. He is both an astral player and a great instructor - I remember when he came in 2009 in Romania, I attended his seminar and believe it or not, in about 40 minutes, that man has explained the most important aspects of playing the guitar, if which we would keep in mind all the time and if we would practice religiously, we would all evolve into great players:

- rhythm is crucial - get a great hang of your timing
- always understand what you play by knowing the common language in order to easily communicate with other people around you
- be melodic instead of trying to be a show-off
- play music, not scales and arpeggios
- don't try to imitate other musicians - try to implement the things you learn from them in your playing, but play them as you would play them, not as they are doing it
- play with people as much as you can
- when you learn something, be sure to master all the details - do not take a simple song for granted - make it shine by playing it as great as possible
- don't strive to be complicated in your music, for the sake of it, sometimes simple things can tell a story better than anything else
- try to transmit a message with your music

I tried to sum it up as best as I could, although nothing - but nothing compares to being there:

Some great tips from two killer instructors, Guthri and the COS!! I really do think we are lucky here having such a great community of teacher and killer players that we call "students" but who are in fact just as much a part of the learning process as the instructors. It really is a symbiotic relationship smile.gif

It's so inspiring to read his books and see him talking about music and guitar. I still remember how impressed I felt when I discovered his books "Creative Guitar" in which I found the best texts about guitar I have ever read. He explained everything so clearly, so complete, with excellent examples and with humility. I also love his magazine articles as well as his music.

Another guy that I think is both a great teacher/guru and guitarist is Steve Vai. I love his speeches as much as his music.

Hell yes - I always knew there was something magical about him, but after going to his workshop this June, I realized that the guy can give you wings after listening to him talk... It's a strong recommendation - if you have the chance, go attend on of his workshops smile.gif It might change your life
