How Yngwie Malmsteen builds solos

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 In : yngwie malmsteen 


I did an analysis of the Yngwie Malmsteen song Black star from he's debut album and this is what came up.
It's kind of weird that Yngwie was always accused of just playing fast, because actually I would say that the solo's I analysed was closer to something like 70 percent melody and then only 30 percent fast licks. So in this video I will show you how
Yngwie typically builds a solo

Yngwie Malmsteen improvisation tricks

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, December 27, 2018 In : yngwie malmsteen 


A thing Yngwie often does to get he's sound is to throw in first step arpeggios pertaining to the Harmonic minor scale which is a minor triad and combining it with the seventh and second step arpeggios which are diminishes arpeggios which gives a strong Neo classical sound inspired from Bach and Beethoven and many others.

Make sure you download the charts so you can use it yourself for improvising

What would Yngwie Malmsteen do

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 In : yngwie malmsteen 


Yngwie Malmsteen's approach to solo using the Natural minor. I did a little analyzis of the track Brothers from the Yngwie album Seventh sign, it's an instrumental if you don't already know it.

It's Not a note for note solo but more a video showing you what Yngwie does in this situation to get the sound he has, whats awesome about  that is that you don't learn he's licks but more how to develop your own way of playing Neo Classical Shred guitar.

How to make the Pentatonic scale an Altered scale

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, December 21, 2018 In : how to improvise

Kill with the Pentatonics - Super imposing

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 In : how to improvise 


What we do is actually improvise over a chord that is not there, it sounds crazy but thats the idea, so here we improvise over an A minor chord but for the Super imposing part we use a D Pentatonic scale giving us the flat sixth. 

Now you might say that we get that note anyway if we use a natural minor or Harmonic minor or Melodic minor scale. But if we want to keepour Pentatonic sound and also in this case our Pentatonic chops we do it this way, see the video to get a better idea...
