That's awsome dude! Are going to record it?? Cause, I have VERY seldom heard anyone record yngwie's stuff!
I am just in the process of recording "Far beyond the sun" for my mp3.com page, a tune so VERY much more challenging than recording i.e for the love of god, both technically and emotionally...
Again, I forgive my flame-like post some topics down, but I think u saw my point of it
And I know exactly what you mean; "todays guitaists just want to rock", that quote says it all dude! There's not the least bit of passion for the music in todays players, and I guess it's all because the musical climate of the 90's, we just don't have any musical heroes of our generation... When young guitarists listen to limp bizkit and linkin park, they think that that's the ****, that's what it's all about. There's nothing in that music that motivates hours of pratice, learning scales, modes and harmony. I guess I was kind of lucky, I grew up in the middle of the so-called "gothenburg sound" hype, very known here in europe, with LOTS of ass-kicking guitarists right here in my town, and I was also raised as a classical violinist. I'm just 20, and it pains me to realize, that none in my age knows how to play. i'm not saying I'm all that, it's not my point, my point is that I practice hard, somtimes up to 15 hours straight.
After all, almost anyone can become a great guitarist, but there are no shortcuts, just practise!
Ok, I'm rambling again, so excuse me for now
