Chris Shellenberger : He may be one of the biggest pompous egotists to have ever held a guitar.. but god damn if he hasn't earned the right..

J. Júnior : It's very hard to explain... But its "PIRIRI PIPIRPIPIRRPI PAW PAW PAW PAW PAW POW!" I don't know how to explain... But's just like! "PIRIRIRPIPIPIRIRIRIRPIPIPIRI POW POW POW POW POW!".

Derek : Okay guys, on three we ALL throw away our guitars...

tylerbmx777 : So when does he start traveling through time...

Myles JS : I didn't think mortals could play like this.

Adam Grzela : I ain't gonna lie, Yngwie's technique is from outer space, and you all have to admit it, whether you're a guitarist or not. But it's absolutely normal for some not to enjoy this kind of music. Personally, I don't enjoy it too. It seems just overly complicated to me. But it's just MY OPINION, which I can express. All of YOU guys can think differently and that's right. But don't forbid people to express their thoughts. And on the other hand - if you don't like it, you can criticize it, but remember, that some enjoy this music and show some goddamn respect. Now let's watch some more sweep picking

Will Hoste : i can do this, one of you hold my beer...

Alex R : Kinda ironic he's wearing a cross bracelet and playing arpeggios from hell.

PanteraSD : "No i dont like donuts"

Reynold Suhardi : thank god youtube has an option to slow the video down

Moe Greene : Bach 1685-1750 Paganini 1782-1840 Malmsteen 1963-

Claudio : His right hand is painting. That's one of the speed secrets... relaxation.

Patrick Bateman : very hard to explain

Jeff Scarrott : Surprised at all the trash talking...the guy was one of the first to play like this. All that Baroque classical stuff, created a whole style for shredders. To say it's soulless is an insult to his intelligence, c'mon any guitar player who gets it can appreciate what he's doing even if it's not your style. Get over yourselves, look at his right hand and learn something...

speedyguy8 : 100% confirmed, he must have sold his soul for these skillz

Amanojaku8 : Listening to this makes me want to play Castlevania. That is a good thing.

Shaojun Cai : Reminds me of beethovens symphonies

Edgar Martínez : "This particulal vido". Only Malmsteen can be forgiven for saying that.

Robby Suter : Yngwie Malmsteen has the most feel of any guitar player out there way more then any blues player for sure. I heard that Stevie Ray Vaughan wanted to quit playing guitar when he heard Yngwie but Yngwie encouraged him to keep at it!

Marco Rademan : "many arpegios in different modes.. craziest i could come up with." plays standard diminished arpegios entire way through. not criticising technique .. simply his condescending wording.

Free man : I'd love to hear this isolated from the shitty drum machine.

Peace Sells but WHO'STURNINGTHEFRICKIN'FROGSGAY? : I can play this! Just click on the "play" button...

shutterbugblues : I don't deny Yngwie's abilities and his contributions to music, but I really wish he'd expand more. I saw him live earlier this year and it was the most bizarre, corniest concert I've ever seen. There's little variety in his music and his performances are a bit too narcissistic and impersonal. His bandmates were all on one side of the stage (his lapdog bassist did all the talking for him) while he took up the rest of the stage doing acrobatics and poses over and over again, which got old after 30 minutes and the show went on for almost 2 hours.

Luis Campa : 21 freets no floyd rose...this man is a monster!!

George Ioannou : thats nice an all but can he play smoke on the water

Dell Extron : Dude has a red belt in guitar!

1032patrick : I play in the style of Petrucci, Vai and especially my favorite Yngwie. They play technically fast with lots of emotions. There are people who would tell me when I play one of their songs that they don't understand what I'm playing and that they don't like it. but I don't give a damn, they are just sore losers who can't understand music.. I'm from the Philippines and I can say that most guitarists here can't play well. Playing chords is as far as they go.. The very few shredders here aren't given recognition only the usual singers.

Josh Wilson : Yngwie is definitely one of the most skilled guitar players of all time, but his music is all shred. While he could definitely play chords and the like if he wanted to, he dosen't, and as a result I think his music has a lack of substance to it, especially when you compare it to a lot of the newer instrumental rock and metal such as Animals As Leaders, Plini, or Chon. Just my opinion, though.

BDNF14 : This man inspired me to play guitar. I always dreamed of shredding one of Malmsteen's song but I never came close. lol I definitely reached my limits and don't see myself ever shredding like him :(

moises salcido : This man changed the way neo classical metal and the way shredding is done.  this man might be an asshole at times but he is imo the greatest guitarist.  such a deadly combination of baroque style of music and shredding.   Rock on yngwie.

wipout1 : sounds better on 2x play speed

Alex Denk : I like Synyster Gates more, I think he's just as good technicality wise and better at writing solos musically 

Avenging Angel : Speechless

Trevor T : You cant deny that he is great, but I cant listen to him for long. All of his songs start blending together.

moreblack : Impressive, and then 13 year old Tina S comes along and plays this piece as if she'd been doing it all her life.

Fibson97 : How could anyone hate Yngwie? Jealousy is what it is. The guy is the word 'unique' in the flesh. Some call him arrogant but when you're as talented as this why should you be mellow 24/7? We know he's amazing and he knows he's amazing so what's the problem?

Jai Mani : Man that was awesome. Is there anybody that can help explain the music theory behind it? I'm rusty beyond the ability to comprehend it haha

Alastair Corsair : 'Mehahaha' -Rei That is all.

Zander R : Add a distorted rhythm guitar, a bass solo, and some heavier drumming and this could easily be a Necrophagist song

Jaymzofsteel : I think Yngwie is the reason sweep picking became popular. Even though he does not even himself do it much. But half assed players who cant pick all the notes he does so they do what they can to sound like they are.

The Hash : he used to take lessons from the legendary guitarist Sir CC Deville. You can tell from his sound that he was heavily influenced.

Trevor Houdek : i understand the amount of skill it takes to play this, i understand that Yngwie is truly inspired and that he truly inspires others, but to me it all just sounds soulless.

TheMetalButt : Best guitarist ever. I think if I tried to play this I'd die

Santeri Nissinen : epicness starts at 0:28.

Circle Of Fifths : I love how the different octaves are used and jumps from key to key but does it so smoothly, each lick fits together so well. I just learned this song but I Definetely can't shred it how he does

lahadc : god damn! why did I just find out about him?

Michael Jeffrey : In summary: A viddo of a very hard to explain arpeggio from hell... 

John Keys : How come everything Malmsteen does sounds Canon in D'ish?

mark henson : fastest guitar shredder forever!

Shinbu1128 : Yngwie Malmsteem, Jeff Loomis, and Michael Angelo Batio. The Triforce of Guitarists. If these men ever did a collaboration, the world would collectively orgasm.
