Hey guys! Wanted to share this YJM style performance I did for Guitar Interactive Magazine, from a YJM style-file (“Tech Session”) they asked me to do.
Being a CTC fan, I decided I’d try and do it using the YJM DWPS system. Not easy, considering I’m more of a 2-way Jimmy Bruno/Gambale kind of guy - the pickslant going against the direction of travel during those descending licks felt very strange!
As if that wasn’t enough, I’d practised it all on my PRS at home, only to turn up to the studio to find Yngwie’s ACTUAL GEAR (yes, the Strat and the Marshall used to belong to him!) waiting there for me to use! It was an incredible honour, but so intimidating - not to mention how weird the scalloped frets and crazy high action felt. It was like playing guitar on “expert”.
Anyway, here it is - be kind!
