I’m working on improving my technique and I decided to learn my first Yngwie lick from an actual song, which is the first fast lick from Far Beyond the Sun that comes right after the intro. I assume a lot of you know this one already.
There are a lot of lessons on Youtube for it but I did not find any that explain which pick stroke methods to use. Most seem to use mostly strict alternate picking apart from the first three notes.
Before I decide to move on with this approach and to avoid frustration, I figured I’d be proactive and check how Yngwie played it, and how some of you might approach it. Did Yngwie play it with strict alternate or a mix of alternate/economy/legato? I assume it’s a mix, and if it is, could someone walk me through it?
For years I tried to play songs with strict alternate picking with not so good results, and I find I’m still tempted do to so. Even if I know better with all the info on this site and all over Youtube, but my brain can’t let go. If it’s alternate picking throughout so be it, if it’s not I want to avoid the frustration and wasted time if possible.
