I loving Yngwie, but I could only watch a couple of minutes of this. He’ll be headed this way so I’ll go see him again, it’s a lot better in person.
He is definitely one of the Kobe Bryant’s of guitar so to speak. I’ll leave Eddie for the Michael Jordan spot.He was fat Elvis for a while but has slimmed down. He is still as great a player as ever but a little too full of himself, which is Yngwie.
I wish he'd change it up with different guitars and technique but we know it's not going to happen. "Yngwie Plays Slayer"
"Players like Vai or Malmsteen spend their time perfecting what they do only as far as leads... Yngwie had a run where he did some good songs, but when it became just about how many notes he can fit in a millisecond?"
King added: "Don't get me wrong, he's an amazing player but after three songs, I'm done.
"He'll just keep doing it faster on a different string. Rhythm guitar is where a song is constructed. If there's a song you like, it's because of that rhythm guitar. The lead stuff at the end of the day is just the icing."
With all the practice he's had at flicking and kicking picks....I think he could drop kick one right back into his right hand. That would be awesome.
