I think he is a pompus bastard that is stuck in the bad part of the 80s.

Amazing guitar but far too mechanical. If he put more emotion into his playing I'd like him alot better.

he's a great guitarist, but as riseagainst said its really almost automatic playing. needs to be dreamier, but no doubt an amazing guitarist.

How dare you guys disrespect the focking fury.

Seriously, i dont get all the Yngwie bashing, especialy with all the tasteless, wanking and boring shreders out there, they all make Yngwie seem far more tasteful in comparison.

And i do think Yngwie can be very tasteful and even emotional when he wants to be, he does more than just shred, in fact he used to play neo classical accoustic guitar before even taking up electric...I think his accoustic stuff is the best, personaly.

Regardless, he was the biggest influence on the 80s shred scene after EVH and Blackmore...And for god reason, get Rising Force, some sweet stuff.

technically the most gifted guitarist by far, there is nothing too difficult for him to play. However, like others have said his emotion lacks and it was very evident to me when I saw a video of him trying to play the blues, it was aweful. You could tell he was just playing the notes and there was no feeling behind what he was playing.

I agree, he really is a great guitarist and doesn't deserve all the bashing he's been getting on this forum. I have never in my life heard someone shred on a classical guitar like he does. You gotta admit that its pretty cool how he plays tchaikovsky (sp?) on his strat. By far the fastest strat player, possibly the fastest player of all time, not sure. Speed and technicality isn't everything though of course, if only you could blend him in with gilmour or hendrix or clapton or something, then you would have it made...
