Seeing Yngwie live is the kind of thing I did so I could say I saw Yngwie live.
This is basically the entire reason I went to Generation Axe a couple years ago.
Fun show but yeah, after a while there really can be such a thing as too many guitar notes.
I thought the video was pretty cool.
I also didn't expect him to say anything particularly helpful, having watched some of his actual instructional videos years ago, but I still like picking up stuff from just watching him play, and this is up close and in good quality.
I’ve seen him in concert and he wasn’t sloppy af, maybe this is a new development, or he’s hitting the gin n’ juice now.
Saw him live in 1995 I think
Being in Italy didn't help, he had a bottle of Chianti and a glass and he drank a glass between each song
But it was crazy nonetheless
Man, watching that video, I’m now on a huge Yngwie binge! LOL! Now I’m seriously looking at his sig guitar...
In the G3 tour era, I read an Steve Vai interview where he said that he tried Yngwie guitar and it was unplayable for him. Super high action.
I wouldn't mind buying his red signature model.
Yes he has really high string height, there's no secret about that and that's a big reason he has such a great tone. Higher string height (providing you can play with it) will give your instrument a way better tone.
Also, it was really nice to see this video from him. He still got it, the playing in this one is the best I've seen in a good while from him. I hope he will do more videos like this.
If your strings don't buzz then added string height is not gonna give you any better tone. That's makes no sense from the point of view of the actual physics involved.
It does. But hey, it seems I should have consulted you before since you're the expert in physics in here.
I have only played guitar for 20+ years. So what do I know about setting up string height and how guitars sound like.
It doesn't. If the frets and setup are good, higher action doesn't mean better tone. Actually, go too overboard with it and it'll just give you tuning issues, so no, it doesn't make the guitar sound better.
Intonation problems, much more than tuning ones
Nope. The more you need to push the string down the more you bend it out of tune. String sitting too high will give you sharp notes even if the string is in tune when played open.
Is that one of the custom shop ones? Love those finish options but I was looking at the 1900 dollar one as there is quite the difference in price with those custom shop ones!!
It can be "better" if you really need more meat to your tone. It makes your guitar sound fuller in the low end and gives more sustain. I'm assuming it's because your strings have plenty of room to vibrate. But we're dealing with super compressed high gain tones, and shit even compressed clean tones.
But I like a medium-low action. Just enough to where having it low enough adds some extra snap and attack to your tone.
Looking at the pictures and comparing to my guitar he’s about 4-5mm on the lowest string and 4 on the highest, maybe less cause it’s hard to tell with the scalloped frets. The main problem is how bad the nut is setup. Yngwie does use higher action than his peers but I really doubt his live guitars are setup like that.
Your secret identity’s safe with me, Mr. Malmsteen
