The legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen spoke at an event in the United States about which advice would give beginning musicians
“There are so many things you can say about it. But you have to have passion for it. To quote Niccolò Paganini [violinist, guitarist, guitarist and Italian composer], my greatest hero – he said: ‘For others to feel strong, you must feel strong.’ In other words, don’t try to do what someone else tells you: don’t do something you think other people will like; do what you want and don’t give a shit about what other people say.”
Yngwie will be on the Generation Ax tour, alongside Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi in North America.
The musician’s latest album was World On Fire, released in 2016 on King Records.
