Yngwie Malmsteen by Johnny DeMarco – A TTK Exclusive!


Watch gunslinger Johnny DeMarco walk you through the tips, tricks & techniques of legend Yngwie Malmsteen!  Johnny will take pieces of Yngwie’s work, and show you how to incorporate it into your own style of playing.  He’ll talk gear – about Yngwie’s tone, pickups, amps, and will specifically address his style of ‘clean’ distortion.  You’ll hear about his influences, both classical and rock. Style and technique wise, you’ll learn some roll licks, arpeggios, diminished arpeggios, harmonic and natural minor scales.  Johnny will walk you through ‘pedal tones’, ‘target notes’ and how to make some bad ass sounding diminished runs!  And … if that isn’t enough, since Johnny and Yngwie are friends … you’ll get the low down on some pretty juicy stories!  At TTK, we’re happy to have this as an exclusive!
