Cool stuff! Will have to definitely practice this one!!!
ok now i am imppresed
Yes Gabriel - you display some awesome chops, tight, clean & fast!
Was Yngwie one of your early influences?
that was pretty bad ass
Thank you very much!
yes, Yngwie has been one of my earlier influences. When I was 15 I became a Yngwie fan and I studied him completely. I learnt a lot of his solos and improvisations.
two words... bad ass
awesome playing but there isnt a guitarist i hate more than the ego maniacal yngwieXD
cool lesson, but thats out of reach at my stage of playing guitar
I do understand what you mean with "reach" - however I think many are the guitarist who begin with something that's way beyond their reach just to nail one lick/passage. Well, actually not nail just atempt to nail - sometime that can be what triggers!
Don't set your goal to be able to play like Gabriel, start by attempting to play it like the slow illustrations - if you get that down in acouple of months you can be very happy and you will have made awesome progress! /Kris
Very good speed exercise. Love it!
This is awesome man! Another thing to practice - I need more time!!
It almost sounds like you are sliding from the 5 position E string to 12 position. Is that correct? Maybe I am hearing it wrong. It is very fast! Like this: ???
Great Lesson. gotta go practice this.
Hi Hockey Kid! I agree with Kris.
Hi Jeff. There isn't slide. The arpeggios are being played too fast.
Yes, this is the kind of stuff I joined for, thanks
awesome lesson, i got it memorized im just a little slow . are we going to see any more yngwie style lessons in the future? oh i noticed in section 7 the first lick of the tab is off from what your playing.
Hi Ace! This week we are going to see the Yngwie lesson 2.
Thanks for your correction. I'll check it.
Wow! I am 38 years old, and have only begun to play, I started only six months ago. I have loved neo-classical for a long time (since the 80's), but NEVER thought I would be able to play anything close to it. Your lesson(s) show me I can. Please keep them coming. Also great to see a Les Paul player playing this style of music.
What other gear are you using? You have a great tone.
Thank you lefty! I recorded the guitar with a Shure sm-57 mic and I used marshall valvestate 8080 amp distortion.
I'm really impressed that how clean and fast u can play..Do u use any noise reduction effects or something similar? Thanks
Hi kianyip! I haven't any effect. It's just me and my amp distortion.
hey wuts up great lesson i just have one question its about the step number seven i was just wonderin, i can't tell by your fingers but is it supposed to go 10-13-12-10-12-13 because it says to reach from 8 to 13 and it kind doesn't sound the same as the way you play it but i was just wonderin? once again i love these lessons there awsome!
my metronome cant do 220 bps xD
gah, I can do the arpeggios at 70% but that first one where your index does 3 frets under each other is annoying as hell, can't get it up to speed, stuck at 40% >.<
Hey tha_max! Keep on practicing! You'll reach the 100% soon if you practice it every day.
GuitarDude: You could put it in 110 and practice it in 32th notes.
Hey Gabriel, this a great lesson man, thx a lot..! it's explained very clearly.. i hope they live these videos up long enough for me to master it.. :-)
Gabriel, quick question... what kind of guitar pick do you find that is easier to do sweeping with ? anything goes or do you prefer a certain type..?
thanks man..! - and another thing... if i can get to play this piece the way you play it... f#4%.. i'll be happy for a long time.. :-)
I preffer a medium/heavy pick to play fast stuff because you can get a more precise sound.
I'm getting on here kinda late, but great lesson. Totally inspired to finally get good at sweeping.
Hey Gaby!!!perfect lesson!!!nice job!!!...gracias
it so hard...i feel like crying.. but i dont want to give up....
you have an error in the tab, at first bar, video 7.
awesome sweeping gabe
Gabriel, I can actually play this at 220bps but when shifting up and down the neck, I don't always land on the fret that I wish to. Example might be moving from index & pinky on 5 & 8 fret to index & pinky on 8 & 12 fret. I sometimes land on the 13 fret. Is there a technique to prevent this? The only thing I could come up with is to keep the eyes one step ahead by looking at the fret you want the pinky to land on before you actually move it there.
Hi Gabriel. Wow!
In lesson 2, just wondered how the D dim chord fits in. In A minor, the dim chord is usually B isn't it? Is it normal 'practice' to take a minor chord and substitute it's diminished form, from a theory point of view, just to change the 'feel' a bit? (They both have a minor 3rd interval, after all, and the only real change is A to Ab).
I will irresponsibly interrupt "reallylongnickname" and "kevvyg", and just say that this lesson rocks just as much as the instructor who made it !
I think you even have some more complex stuff than what Yngwie would do at the end, great job!
Ok really good lesson, I star whit this, whish me luck
