Classic Internet Guitar Lessons

These lessons have been floating around the web for years and were not written by the cyberfret staff. Therefore they are offered AS IS with no warranty, no money back guarantee, no technical support, no ads, and no pretty background (just plain gray and text, the way it was back in the old days, AND WE LIKED IT) The author of the material is at the top of each lesson. This is part of the history of guitar lessons on the Internet...

 

Yngwie Malmsteen Lesson

These are a bunch of licks and scales that he liked to use.  Especially
on his first two albums.  Fortunately, since then he's branched out,
incorporating modes, and other things like chromatic runs and more major
sounding scales.  But this will give you an idea of where he started
when he did his first two solo albums.  If you listen to Rising Force or
Marching Out, then listen to Fire and Ice or 7th Sign, you can hear a big
difference in his playing.  Less of the dark minor songs, listen
to Leviathan off of Fire and Ice, very major sounding, now if he can only
do the same with his lyrics....:)  Just kidding!
