I learned the guitar riff for You Fool No One off of Deep Purple’s 1974 Burn album. They also do it live in Made in Europe. Blackmore is playing the riff so fast it sounds like a blur. I can’t play it as fast as Blackmore, but when I play it I can hear every note and it sounds good.
That’s the problem with Yngwie. He plays so fast that the ear can’t discern all the notes he is playing.
Is that musical and good?
Not to mention there are a lot of musicians and listeners that get tired quite quickly of that super fast playing. They don’t find it all that enjoyable to listen to.
I know I’m not going in that direction, so I can play like Yngwie or Joe Stump.
I like listening to them. I’m a fan of both of them. But a lot of people are not.
I think it’s important to know when to put the brakes on and slow down.
