Why are we talking about chords and funk? Yngwie is performing his own classical pieces in this video. Would also go to the philharmonic and complain there is no blues or strumming going on? Of course not. He is a classically influenced hard rock guitarist who does happen to play his form of blues from time to time, but is mostly a classically styled soloist.

These ridiculous complaints are essentially like complaining that Buddy Guy can't play sweep arpeggios. Variety is the spice of life.

He is playing chords they are called - Arpeggios - the notes of a chord played in succession, either ascending or descending.

All Flash & NO funk.

I have heard more soul in Guitar playing when my son was 3 & played his Guitar.

Don't get me wrong- he sure can play that Strat but there is nothing there- no balls- no soul. He bores me poopless.
