    Thanks for posting that. Ya the guitars are just tools for him. Also the camera guy/interviewer is terrible.

    OK couple of things.

    Im sure some of you may consider this blasphemy but I have never heard of him.
    I can't believe that he doesnt take care of his guitars. He clearly could care less. OK then if thats the case I'll take all his leftys and the one he just threw back on the floor, yea the one he said is one of the first ever Strats made. That one.

    Last I cant even imagine how hard this

    must be to play on.

    Clearly this dude is an amazingly sick guitars. What do you guys think he has $$$$$ wise stacked on his floor like a bunch of dominos???

    well yngwie is prolly the GREATEST shredder there ever was
    he rose to fame, coming from sweden, in the 80s with metal bands like steeler
    in the early 80s he formed his own band rising force.
    his stly is neo-classical shred with a heavy hendrix and balckmore influence.
    and while i´m mostly not into the hyper speed guitars section I have to admit that Yngwie is a monster, he has the fucking chops of doom!
    whats remarkable bout him is that he is also capable of playing a straight up 12 bar blues with a kind of feeling that the other shredders (like gilbert etc) jsut dont seem to have.

    he plays a million notes a second but one can really feel that he is playing with 100 % commitment and feeling!

    and he is nototrious for his hot temper!
    resulting in the infamous "unleash the fury" incident during a flight.


    poor stewardess, but she prolly deserved it, who knows

    thanks for posting this EEF13. I like a wide range of musical genres and yngwie's stuff is one of them. the man is a genius to compose musically complex songs. i read somewhere that one time he took an aptitude exam and he scored somewhere around the ballpark where a rocket scientist would score.

    I have to say I like some of his stuff but it gets a bit one dimensional after a while.
    These days I listen to Holdsworth a lot more.
