Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Yngwie Malmsteen is a first class jerk .....

I used to love his technical virtuosity once upon a time ... but gradually grew out of his style ..

I came upon this today

He shows himself to be a dog eat dog Republican - Note: this was around President Obama's first election and he says
America does not need change.



and Jimi Hendrix's music is Noise ( WTF ?????) ..and Nothing Normal about me.

1. I guess you're right

I still prefer Vai and Satch in regards to virtuosity.
Malmsteen was good, but I don't consider him to have a high place in the pantheon of Guitar Gods.

2. I first heard him around 1992 ... and was totally blown away ... but over a period of time his

music spoke less and less to me ...

the final straw was when I went to see him live and realized this guy was such a Diva .... He gave the Sound guys a real tough time and calling them out in front of the crowds ...

3. Yeah, which is why I've never been much of a fan

I prefer the two I mentioned first as well as other guitarists who were more bluesy.
Ever hear of Jason Becker?

4. yup .. but mostly over youtube ... My favorite shredders apart from Satch and Vai

are Shawn Lane (RIP) and Guthrie Govan ....

also check out a Thai guitarist called Jack Thammarat ....


But my all time favorite has to be Scott Henderson .. he combines Jazz, Rock & blues like few others can ...

5. Sounds great.

I've been a fan of Kaki King and "Roberto Y Gabriella" lately.
Both of them use acoustic guitars in amazing ways.

The latter takes a lot of rock influences and plays it in acoustic.
