I've been looking at the Yngwie Malmsteen strat for a while now. I've done a lot of research, and from the sound bytes from Fender.com, it sounds pretty good. The only thing i nned to know what waht it feels like. I've looked in many guitar shops and none seem to have it. It's important, because of the scalloped fretboard. Has anybody played one, what's it like.
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.
