Five Furious Yngwie Malmsteen Licks Every Guitarist Should Know

Online guitar instructor Robert Baker is back with a new lesson demonstrating how to play five of his favorite Yngwie Malmsteen-style licks.

Among the phrases demonstrated include a diminished two-string idea taken from Malmsteen’s classic “Black Star,” a stationary lick with a “big stretch” and a single-string ascending harmonic minor run.

Robert also provides tab for these licks, which you can get here.
