Here we have a solo study in the neo-classical rock/metal style. This style gained popularity from the groundbreaking release of Yngwie Malmsteen’s 1984 debut album Rising Force, born from Yngwie’s unique blend of influences, combining classical harmonies and melodies with violin virtuoso Nicolo Paganini and composer J.S Bach cited as influences, alongside the high energy presentation of seventies rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Uli Jon Roth and Ritchie Blackmore.

From the mid 1980’s, the technical demands of this fast melodic style were almost a rite of passage for up and coming rock virtuosos, and prominent players would include Vinnie Moore, Tony Macalpine, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker and Marty Friedman. Characterised by heavy driving rhythm sections and harmonically rich, classically influenced progressions, this style showcases techniques including alternate picking and sweeping along with an emphasis on accurate bending and vibrato.
