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

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. Remember to click the  lick under the video if...

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

Another Trick That Makes You Practice Consistently

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, December 18, 2017, In : how to practice 


Take what you already know and get the most out of it

As you can also see in the video I take some techniques that I already know and bunch them together to a new and fun pattern. What I also do is I identify what techniques or patterns I need to work on and make sure they become a part of the new piece I practice. So for me for example I want to practice some descending alternate picking and also a few triad arpeggios that always needs attention to stay on the edge.

Chances are that you at s...

The Trick That Makes You Practice Consistently

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, December 9, 2017, In : how to practice 



Good discipline versus bad discipline

One of the so called tricks I used to make myself practice all the time when I was developing my chops back in the days was using discipline, but I know I have been preaching that discipline will not last and creates a lot of stress, that being said I came to think of what awesome things discipline can produce which is to create the freedom later after chosing whats right for you in this moment if you want to be the greatest guitar player you can be

What is Arpeggios?

Let me explain this to you in a way that I think will uncover what somethimes can seem a bit of a mystery. Imagins the dawn of time some people agreed og a group of notes, in this case the Major scale, and then imagine a monestry a group of munks are singing and one of them notices that when you skip every other note in that scale and ask three munks to sing the first, thir and fifth note of that scale it sounds awesome, then take those three notes and sing the notes one a...
