"There are moments here in which Yngwie Johann Malmsteen plays so fast that the strings don't have time to resonate. His guitar sounds like a washboard. While I admire his skill, I think his vision falls a little short and doesn't do the washboard justice.
A true washboard player can keep going for hours and hours. Getting those clothes clean, as anybody who's been in rehab knows, is spiritual training. Wherever they're from, the great washboard players have mountain eyes.
One-handed stroking, a cello player or two, Tokyo, and in-law problems might be the beginnings of wisdom, but not if pride--"showing off," as Ritchie Blackmore said of Yngwie--keeps rearing its head.
A sense of humor wouldn't hurt. Or a pilgrimage to the hills of Caroline.
Given the many rock-band-with-symphony-orchestra pairings of late, it's about time that Jim Dandy Mangrum took what remains of Black Oak Arkansas and showed young Yngwie how to do it right.
