    I've always enjoyed this element of his playing. It's a pity he's never done more in this style.

    Interestingly, Troy Grady's claimed in interviews that Yngwie's picking style and approach to fingering is very similar to gypsy jazz, and when you listen to him on the acoustic it's believable...

    That would have been ultimate if he dropped all of the "look at how fast I can smoke arpeggios up the neck" shit out of it.

    As a guitarist, I'm impressed. As a musician and as a fan of music, I got bored pretty quickly. Pretty much what Chris said. Also, that guitar sounded like shit when he was shredding on it.

    Umm...when he actually did some "fingerstyle" there, it was really quite sloppy.

    Yngwie is a joke to me, and he's so fat now, but still tries to wear leather pants from the 80's.

    The intro to "Black Star" is what got me into classical guitar. :) Yngwie used to be absolutely phenomenal. His lead tone on "Trilogy" made my already huge 7-string strat GAS even more unbearable.

    Slagging the Yng!? Time to unleash the fucking fury! :scream:

    :lol:

    Seriously I loved every second of it. Heck with Yngwie naysayers (although I address that to none in particular), and declare I totally dig it. :yesway:

    Thanks DR (although I've seen this vid many times, and have the DVD.)



    I like this idiot's comments -

    Uhh....I can pick fast. Give me another month, and I'll be able to play like that. It's not that amazing.

    A month and he can play like Yngwie. :lol: Yeah, ok. :yesway:

    It's probably a fourteen-year old boy whose mommy's told him he's wonderful.:lol:

    :agreed: Agreed on all points. This is off of the G3 in Denver DVD I have. I've always enjoyed that part of the show.

    And, yet again, another example of how 98.9% of youtubers are incompetent foooooools.

    I loved that clip, that was actually a very good acoustic piece. There are others out there that are kind of boring but this one is :metal: :metal: :metal:

    A pick on a nylon string makes me cringe. Impress me by playing those same runs with reststroke plz.

    Pretty cool. I like his electric playing a lot better and tend to fast forward when the acoustic stuff comes up. :D But, it's still Yng. I remember when I first heard him shredding on acoustic and I thought, "This is just not fair." Hahaha!

    Listen to John McLaughlin and then repeat that statement...

    Personally I like both pick and picado technique for nylon-string leads...

    Finally checked out this vid. I've never been huge into him but i've always known how impressive he is and this was impressive, very cool. :agreed:

    Oh I dont deny that, Ive worshipped at the McLaughlin altar as well, its just the solo classical guitarist background that makes it hard for me to digest nylon string from a picked single line perspective.

    That's snappy sound when he plays is SO irritating (to me).
    The Ovation might add to it.

    Dude, I love playing picked runs on nylon strings. I don't care if it's traditional or not - it sounds fuckin' cool. :metal:
