This time, we are looking at a Titan of neo classical guitar, Mr Yngwie Malmsteen!
Yngwie needs no introduction here... he's a legend in the guitar world.
I will be focusing on his 3 string arpeggios although you will encounter a couple of brief picking licks.
I find that 3 string arpeggios are trickier to play well than 5 or 6 string arpeggios because you have to change direction more often, making it harder to maintain an even and smooth sweep picking motion. So, if you have trouble with this technique, this will help you nail it down.
Palm muting with the picking hand plays a crucial role in muting the strings. In this lesson, I'm not using loads of gain, to reflect Yngwie's tone from his early days. This gives you a cleaner sound to help you identify areas where strings are ringing too much and helps you keep track of your muting technique, allowing each note to 'pop' out.
Don't forget that Yngwie's sound isn't just in his technical playing, make sure you squeeze those vibratos out fully!
