  • Hello GMC!

    I've always wanted to give lesson in the style of Yngwie Malmsteen,
    but after watching Marcus, Emir and Gabriel’s lessons I gave up.
    Finally, one day I found a tape of my early recordings. Especially
    one track reminds me of Hans Zimmer compositions and yes - Yngwie Malmsteen’s
    Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra released in 1998.

    So, I've engaged my private orchestra again and recorded this little tune :)

    We are going to use:

    - alternate picking,
    - vibrato
    - sweep picking
    - barouque technics like ostinato,

    Tempo: 120
    Time sig: 12/8

    I used mostly a minor scale, but please notice the following modulations:

    00:00 A minor (= A aeolian)
    00:35 D harmonic minor
    00:38 A harmonic minor
    00:41 D harmonic minor
    00:44 A harmonic minor
    00:47 back to A minor


    This is the preset I used for the POD XT live for this lesson:

    Amp: Line 6 Chemical X , Drive 8 - Bass 5 - Middle 6- Treble 4 - Presence 4
    Cab: 4x12 2001 Treadplate
    Dly: Multihead delay,
    Rev: DAW reverb
    Stomp: Classic Distortion

    The lesson is available in the guitar pro 5 file, mp3 backing tracks included.

    Enjoy!

    Piotr
