    Yngwie gives his opinion on other guitar players...in 1994

    Somebody dug up this Guitar World article from 1994 where they play various songs for Yngwie and have him give his opinion on them, particularly the guitar playing. It's pretty amusing.


    I like the groovy intro. Sounds like a Strat. But the soloing going over the song is very bad. It’s bent out of shape and out of tune. It’s very basic bullshit pentatonic runs. The choice of notes in the solo is completely overdone. That stuff has been done for 30 years! I’m sick and tired off that bending bullshit. This is the most run-of-the-mill pentatonic playing I ever heard.

    GW: That was Joe Satriani.

    MALMSTEEN: You’re kidding! Was he high? He’s playing out of tune, and the most boring runs! What I’ve heard from Satriani before was really good, but this – this sounds like something someone would play in a garage. After the backwards solo, Joe does some nice stuff with out of phase pickups, which I liked. But the actual solo... I could never dream that was Joe. Out of tune, and terrible.

    I remember seeing this a long time ago, and I really got a kick out of it.

    ...talking about Metallica

    Lars (Ulrich) is a great drummer. I feel some sort of connection with them. I think the band heard some of my early demos, which sounded something like this. (Malmsteen demos first surfaced on college radio stations in Northern California, where Metallica is based) Iím not saying I influenced them, but maybe I did.

    He was drunk off of ice cream topped pizza when he answered most of those questions.
