Rockin' the New Year with Auld Lang Syn
Why You Shouldn't Buy A New Guitar in 2009

Yngwie Malmsteem & Nigel Tufnel

Yngwie Malmsteem is one of the uber-shredders of the guitar world, up there with Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert and Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap.  Not your cup of tea?  Well, it's a pretty, ah, specialized area with an audience that is becoming "more selective," if you know what I mean.  This parody showcases Yngwie's special talents quite well...

And as a bonus, here's Nigel's classic guitar solo where he outdoes Jimmy Page's use of the violin bow from the funniest rock and roll movie ever, " This Is Spinal Tap."

As Spinal Tap's David St Hubbins says, "It's such a fine line between stupid and clever." 


...Thank you. Reminds me that I need to watch Spinal Tap again.

the best part of that Nigel Tufnel clip is when he stops to tune the violin.

I remember seeing that in the theatre & cracking up at that part.

It's a great movie! I'll post a riff from Spinal Tap soon.
