I recently started to notice that a lot of the time Yngwie looks like he has his right shoulder raised when playing the guitar:
Maybe it’s just the way he is posed but nevertheless I thought I’d give it a go. To do this, I raised my arm placement slightly on the guitar which raised my shoulder.
First thing I noticed was that I could supinate my picking arm a little more and I had to raise my middle, ring and pinky to accommodate this so that they weren’t grazing the strings when I played. I found that compared to my original technique which looked like wrist and a tiny bit of forearm, I was getting a lot more forearm wiggle and playing faster was easier
(Is the forearm mechanic considered to be faster than wrist?)
I thought I’d share this in the hopes that other people could experiment with it and see if they have similar results!
