Re: Yngwie / Blackmore / Hendrix


Can someone please tell me how exactly Malmsteen is supposed to be a Blackmore soundalike? I've been listening to him for quite a while now and I've never heard anything to convince me that he sounds like Blackmore in style. Blackmore can really give you goosebumps with a single note, whereas "single note" isn't in Malmsteen's repertoire.

Just curious

I don't think there is anyone who thinks they sound alike in style. Its just that Yngwie puts on a similar showmanship side including the all black. He also plays so many Deep purple and rainbow numbers live and as covers on cd.

Re: Yngwie / Blackmore / Hendrix


he doesnt sound like blackmore.
he does use the same techniques which blackmore introduced, played faster and more [sign in to see URL] malmsteen pretends he invented them and he has said it so many times, people actually started believing him.
the harmonic minor runs, and arpeggios.
also composing in a classical way.
its a different style he uses, but coming from the same corner as blackmore.

the difference is, blackmore has class, was the first in combining it with heavyrock succesfully and is very inventive.
malmsteen just wanks.

My thoughts exactly. I've heard Malmsteen butchering Speed King on a Purple tribute album and it's horrible to think that some people were suggesting he should have got an audition for the banjo position after Ritchie left. I would hate to have heard him attempting When A Blind Man Cries emoticon*

Yeah, and another thing is that he doesn't rock like RB.* Thrashing guitars on stage doesn't count IMO. And further, he wrote no catchy riffs and songs like RB. Or at least I don't recall any. The best stuff he did with Turner (again, another thing completely opposite to RB, no, sorry JLT! emoticon ), and the next album after JLT was fired/ left. And even if I used to listen to Malmsteen when I was in my teens, I don't remember a single solo by him.


* There is a clear controversy in YM's statements as far as I can remember. He wanted to be seen as this sophisticated classical musician but at the same time, he said things like "nobody plays a guitar harder than me" - but again that nobody seemed to be very exclusive bunch of people (other fast shredders).

i always disliked how he would say that blackmore just used pentatonics, even though yngwie would often say he did it very well, it's simply not at all true that rb just uses pents and blues scales, you can go as far back as shades to hear otherwise.
