Yngwie Malmsteen Special Feature by Martin Goulding

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Back in July 2005, I was given the honour of interviewing one of my own main early influences, Yngwie Malmsteen. This was my first professional job for Guitar Techniques magazine and along with my good friend Charlie Griffiths who was writing for Total Guitar magazine, we met up with Yngwie at a hotel in Kensington, London, and spent a couple of hours talking guitar, and filming some incredible ‘off-the-cuff’ improv over some backing tracks i’d prepared.

I’m pleased to present the un-edited video improvs for the neo-classically inspired Solo 1, along with the Jimi Hendrix inspired Solo 2 which demonstrates Yngwie’s hot rodded approach. Both solos are presented with the transcriptions in Guitar Pro and PDF format, as well as the same backings Yngwie himself played over! Follow this link to download the complete package for free…

The full package includes fast and slow high definition video demonstrations, along with a 10 minute video breakdown/lesson. Also included is a high quality audio backing track with a set of midi versions at slower speeds, and with all tabs presented in Guitar Pro format as well as PDF’s…
