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...

Effective practicing

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, May 19, 2015, In : exotic scales 


About
Other than a cool little musical piece presenting some interresting scales and modes like Major raised five, Dorian, Locrain and Eight note scale used as a dominant, plus the awesome Major seven raised fifth Arpeggio, this video and blog is about creating a nice and inspiring environment for your practicing. Because if you are like me it can sometimes be a little tough being alone with just the guitar and you racing mind, so what really works great for me and helps me keeping my focus ...

Neo classical shred guitar lesson 3

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, April 25, 2015, In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


About
This is the third contribution to the Neo Classical Shred guitar lessons or Neo Classical Metal lessons that I have been creating in this period and it is the full pice so there's a lot of Tablature in this one. This one is in a way a little more basic because I only use Sweep picking triads and Alternate picking in six tuplets. There's a lot going on in the backing track so I hope you can still hear whats important, the guitar. There are a few points that does not start on a downbeat w...

Neo Classical Shred Guitar Sweep picking 8 finger tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, April 17, 2015, In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


About
Hello again, here are yet another Neo Classical Shred Guitar lesson that are a lot of fun both to listen to and to play. I have again chosen to focus on the combination of Sweep picking and 8 finger tapping as well as the 8 finger tapping alone. So I believe that the sliding of the pick up the index finger using the thump is essential to be able to do this technique since its crucial to have access to all four fingers on both hands if you want to play those sweet 8 finger tapping patter...

This lick contains a lot of different techniques like Sweep picking, Alternate picking, Legato, 8 finger tapping and combinations of those techniques as well.

Jason Becker Altitudes

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, In : jason Becker 


About
Here is my version of the famous Arpeggio pice from the classic Jason Becker song Altitudes. This song has obviously been heavily covered on youtube, but this is sort of a new view of the beautifull piece. Theres many a simpler version of the Arpeggio piece on youtube but the fact is that its actually not that easy, when you listen really close you can clearly hear the slides Jason are doing in between some of the Arpeggios. The topper is the two Taps Jason are also using, I have never ...

Harmonic minor Sweep picking Tapping advanced

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
This lick is really cool and I have used it quite a lot on my recordings like in Infinity Overture: The Infinite Overture pt.1 and my solo album Sthenic. Its a combination of a minor sweep picking triad and a lot of notes added from the Harmonic minor scale with tapping with three fingers on the right hand 

Technique
One element that to some degree can make a very advanced lick like this seem a little easier is the hammer on´s I do as a help to make the shift between the sweep picking tec...

Neo Classical Arpeggios 5

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 22, 2015, In : Neo Classical Shred Guitar 


About 
This cool little and very typical neo classical shred guitar sounding phrase introduces a dominant arpeggio that might be new to you. It´s a little bit non typical in the way that I add extra notes on the way while ascending and descending and in this case it is on the D and on the G string instead of only on the two E strings. The idea of connecting arpeggios together with scale patterns is vey typical for the Neo Classical Metal genre. It especially reminds me of Symphony x Damnation...

If you have checked out my band Sage's Recital you might notice that the intro lick in this one became the intro in the song "you hold the key" or second song on the Sage's Recital debut album :)
