lol mayor or major?
awesome - I just checked out the first passage and I already sound like Yngwie!!
...almost that is
Gabriel it seems video 4 and 5 are the same - can you send me the correct video 4?
Hey ezravdb! I am from Argentina and my main language is spanish!
It's the same: Mayor (spanish) means Major (english),
In my lessons you can learn to play the guitar and speak spanish!! 2x1!! jajaj...
Hi Kris. I'm sending the correct video 4. It will be uploaded soon.
Great lesson, ive never been much of a Yngwie fan, but this is still some great stuff.
does a scalar passage mean its from a scale?
Thanks nrpstreetballa. I couldn't undestand what do you mean.
in video 7 you say "Here we have an ascending scalar passage" what does a scalar passage mean???
It isn't important for the exercise. It's a line that moves across the strings. You could call it line or sequence.
Video four has been fixed - if it isn't working for you yet make sure to clear your browser's cache!
nrpstreetballa: Yes a scalar passag emeans it's from a scale!
Yngwie Malmsteen, is a PRICK! fantastic playing gabriel but lets get back to the Petrucci!
Hi Proof!! Thank you! I have in mind more Petrucci stuff. Be patient!!
Have you listen to Steve Morse band? he is one of the most important petrucci's influences.
This is brilliant. I've been making up some Yngwie influenced licks recently. This has improved my accuracy and speed with them no end. Great as always Gabriel!
Thank you Tank!
Wonderful. Please keep'em coming, lotta cool licks on this one. Are you tuned down a half-step?
No, I'm tuned A440. Yngwie is always tuned down a half-step.
@gabriel: ahh, I see , heh heh
Great Job again Garbriel!! What note values should I be practicing these licks too on my metronome?
Hi mattacuk! You have the note values in the guitar pro file.
For the speedest parts use 16th notes.
Fast runs down the neck work alright for me but I always, ALWAYS, have problem with runs upwards - like in video 4.
I've tried and tried but can't seem to get it to work. Like "Far beyond the sun" I manage everything up to the run similar to this video 4 (starts a bit higher on "far beyond").
What can I do to overcome this huge problem??? Moving fast to the left while staying in control don't seem to work well with my left hand.
Hi bayag. There's no secret there. Just put on the metronome at a slow speed and play it in 16th notes. Practice it 2 hours every day and diferent variation (ex: the far beyond part). Remember the speedest tempo you reach every day and try to improve it the following day.
Awesome job, Gabriel! How long have you been playing?
I've been playing the guitar for more than 13 years.
Hi Gabi, im getting on well with this song but i tend to keep useing my pinky in part 7. Is this ok?
Yes, it depends on how you feel more comfortable. There are some guitar players like Gilbert or Kotzen that plays in that way. However it would be great if you could play every lick with different fingerings.
haha, you know i started off my alternate picking studies with paul gilbert workouts so maybe this is why it feels natural! thanks for the advice!
wow cool man
Nice nice picking
great job Gaby
another awesome malmsteen lesson man!
great job gabe
I think calling him a 'prick' is a bit strong!
I know his solos can be a bit lengthy, but he IS an excellent guitarist! Anyway, excellent lesson!
I'll come back to this when I've worked my way through my bookmarked stuff!
This is just like Malmsteen ! You nailed this lesson completely !
yeahhhhhh man you totally nail the picking of mr ingwie in this lesson, but with a gibson, even more dificult!! great work!!
