Firstly, has anyone looked at the way Yngwie picks the pentatonic scale?
In this clip at 3:21 he blazes through a couple of pentatonic licks which sound really aggressive but it also looks like hes using a bit of legato especially towards the tail end of the lick.
Again, in this clip it looks like he uses a lot of legato and a combination of different pick strokes, probably a mixture of alternate and sweeping but I was wondering if anyone had looked deeper at this, as there are next to no videos on Yngwie blues licks, which is a shame because they sound so good!
Second part of my question is regarding the Yngwie pedal note lick, I tried to work out a way to play it using the typical Yngwie method but it seems to me the only way it can be played is with pure alternate picking, which means having to incorporate some outside picking.
You can see a great shot of Yngwie’s hand playing this lick at 8:54 in this video:
