    Yngwie is an amazing Guitarist.. He plays music that literally takes two people to play.

    I voted "He kicks ass!"

    EDIT: And his songs have some meaning to them... You can feel it. [​IMG]

    Yeah.. Herman Li and the other guy are pretty good guitarists.

    I'm glad you like Yngwie. [​IMG] Check out his songs Blue and Evil Eye if you haven't already.

    I took a course in college called "The History and Form of Rock Music." We spent two lectures on progressive rock guitarists, including a good bit on Yngwie Malmsteen. Definitely very talented. He doesn't quite beat out Steve Vai in my book, but still very awesome.

    He's a pompous, vain bastard... But hell, he's got my permission to be an ass if he keeps playing like that. My favorite album from him was "concerto for an electric guitar" (not sure if the name is right or well-translated).

    Check out the G3 concerts if you want a guitar (and humility) lesson!

    Moved to Contests and Polls. And I really enjoy Yngwie's guitar work. When I first heard his guitar playing I went out of my way to find every song of his I could. Great stuff.

    Pretty much how I'd sum him up. Unfortunately, he hasn't done anything seriously different ever (i.e all his stuff sounds the same) so I get tired of him fast, though I agree that "Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar" is a sweet album.

    he is incredibly fast, ok.

    but speed is not everything.

    i like him, though.
