I doubt that, putting your basic person there to listen to both, that many would feel this guy is even close to Yngwie in terms of quality. Very few.

Speed only counts when you can play at that speed as perfectly as you can as well as you do slower, keeping a perfect rhythm, and perfect accenting. And also having some feeling to your music, some soul. If not, it is disqualified from the competition. This guy is nowhere near Yngwie in terms of quality of play. He may play fast sweeps, but there is some disconnection in his play. Just another guy trying to be as fast as he can, and sacrificing quality to do that.


actually, i have heard none of rusty cooleys music, i just happened to find that on youtube while searching for 8 string stuff. he seems pretty good for a demo. but as for yngwie, YUCK! i havent been able to stand him since i heard him playing on the g3 satch, vai, yngwie album. every time he had to improv, he played the same exact thousand-note speed run. mabe i havnt heard enough of him, but he seems to be able to play cool classical stuff, all in one key. What he does is cool, but you gotta be able to improv, and you gotta be able to play slower. constant 64th notes dont work for every solo. yngwie may have some technique, but to say that he is more soulful than anyone seems a stretch. like i said, i dont know rusty cooleys music yet (gimme a couple of days) so this is not really a comparison b/t players. at first glance, they both seem like very talented technical players. i have just been jaded about yngwie since the G3 album.

Rusty is a far better technical player then he is a composer.

Ive never really seen Rusty break down and play something slower that isnt just a blur of notes. ( Even though im into the whole shredding thing.)

Yngwie may or may not be as technical as cooley but def. writes beautiful music.

But bare in mind all where trying to compare two very different guitar players. I for one really like neoclassical music so I do like Yngwie more. But one huge difference the Rusty can do that Yngwie can not is teach, if youve ever seen any of Yngwies instructionals you wont learn much tongue.gif

Indeed. If you've heard 1 solo from Yngwie, you've heard it all smile.gif

Malmsteen is extremly cocky.
I feel he has never been the fastest player out there and never will.There was always some one out there that could play faster than him but maybe just not in the spotlights.Even now im sure there is someone faster than cooley but locked in his room right now practicing smile.gif But thats a good example of what cocky guitar player's get you.As soon as you feel your the best and talk that way,someone will crush you.

I did read a statment from guitar world years ago that malmsteen himself said ""i have learned everything there is to know on guitar,i can do everything and there's nothing else for me to learn as i know it all"".The one thing i know Malmsteen is the best at is beating on his girlfriends ohmy.gif I think dudes a total prick myself.

It all comes down to Oppinion, Rusty defenitly has a better technique, but that doesnt make him better, Obvioulsy some here will hate rusty and love malmsteen, or vice versa, or hate them both.

I love Rusty, everythig about his style i love.

Yngwie is ok in small doses for me, his "Concerto Suite" album i must say is great though.
