Ok, Here’s my Two cents for Yngwie Malmsteem

dioyngwie_yngwie1I just saw photos of you taken at the recent NAMM show in California. Ok, big deal, you can play effortlessly and with out any feelings at a  million miles an hour. In fact, you have gotten alot of mileage out of that one scale run you play over and over. I will add here in case Keith Alvey wants to try and ring my bell about this guitar player and go ahead and go on record and say it. “I, Chuck Gee, will never be able to play that fast or aticulate as well as Yngwie”. But here is my rant. For God’s sake Yngwie, button the damn shirt up already. None of us are in our twenties anymore and yes we all have put on some weight. But you are starting to look like Elvis Presley right before he died. You have the lamb chop sideburns and a large gut jutting out of your unbuttoned shirt. Keep playing for your fans at a million miles an hour and just button the shirt up. You won’t look like a parody of yourself anymore …

    it’s funny you should mention lambchops and yngwie in the same context,
    and the phygrian harmonic minor scale (mostly an a minor that seems to be his favorite key too)
    i love his first 4 albums but yeah he is a weird fat guy .check out g3 for hilarity.i will go on record saying paul gilbert is the faster picker with more musical sense
    and paul is still skinny but has the tact to not run around shirtless

    I never been a fan of his, yes he plays good, Better than me and most, But you hit it on the head. he plays with no feelings,and using the same run on a lot of songs. So get over your self Yngwie, Joe and Stevie Via blow his ass off the stage every time.
