Elite Guitar Coaching: Interview with Yngwie Malmsteen

Genre: Neo-classical Metal

“Yngwie Malmsteen is God!” .That’s what teens wrote on the walls during Yngwie’s reign at the ‘80’s. Yngwie Malmsteen, armed with extreme technical abilities and a mind full of Rock, Vivaldi, Bach and Paganini, launched in the beginning of the ‘80’s the great neo-classical guitar movement that would force the daredevil of guitar to go full shred and the rest to quit. Yngwie, almost fifty doesn’t rest on the laurels of his former glory and still continues to write and play music remaining a successful and respected artist across the globe.

In this great interview, Yngwie tells us how he got initially the idea to combine classical and rock music, how he got the idea of a scalloped neck, how he made he first connection with Shrapnel Records, why he thinks Paganini is a “rock’n’roller” and he will never change his Strats! Well, we all know what every of time is for this guy! It’s time to rock!
