According to blabbermouth.net, Legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen has launched an instructional web site, RelentlessShred.com.
Want to learn to play guitar — and actually impress? Dying to learn Yngwie's techniques? Tired of watching nobodies, trying to teach you how to play Yngwie's songs? Now, why would you take lessons from a random, when you can learn from Yngwie himself?
For the first time in history, Yngwie Malmsteen is giving lessons on how to become a virtuoso like him! Inside, you will find lessons on everything from bending to six-string arpeggios. Also inside are tablatures, DVDs, and other items exclusive to this site. You won't find any of these things, especially not Yngwie himself, on any other site! Relentless Shred is the only place to go to not only learn guitar; but to master it.
There are four levels of membership: Bronze ($34.99 per month), Silver ($49.99), Gold ($79.99) and Master Virtuoso ($99.99).
"If people are getting back into playing good guitar solos, I'm obviously all for it," Malmsteen recently told Spin magazine. "I don't understand how music ever got to the point where they were a bad thing."
"In the early '90s, something happened," added Malmsteen, 49. "All these alternative bands came out and couldn't play and made fun of guitarists who could by saying they were over the top. I remember thinking, 'What is this shit?' But to quote [violinist and composer Niccolò] Paganini — and I put myself in the class with him and Hendrix — 'One must feel strongly to make others feel strongly.'"
Asked if shredding was in need of some humanizing, Yngwie said, "I don't think so. Less is not more. More is more. These punk musicians couldn't play and were heralded for it. They couldn't even tune their guitars, yet people thought I was the self-indulgent one? I think every player worth listening to realizes now that limitations are for the lazy."
