SKU: volcano-seminar Category:

The Volcano Seminar is an exhaustive, 3+ hour investigation of the Yngwie Malmsteen picking strategy.

In this seminar, we pore over a trove of fascinating historical footage of the master to demystify his trademark phrases. It’s the ultimate guide to the power of downward pickslanting — the engine behind Yngwie’s mechanical genius, and also the genius of legendary players like George Benson, Django Reinhardt, Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, and so many more.

Its 28 chapters are packed with painstaking analysis of historical footage, including step-by-step breakdowns of classic Yngwie licks and techniques. The stunning efficiency of Yngwie’s string switching innovations for scalar and arpeggiated playing are thoroughly demystified, along with his trademark rotational, elbow, and finger-driven motion mechanics. It’s the ultimate investigation of one of the most powerful and popular picking strategies ever devised.

The Volcano Seminar includes 28 video chapters and 100 slow-motion video examples with tablature.
