All the time in the world to create content, but no time to finish the fucking record.
This "I Can't Yngwie" video could be his way of telling us he needs a decade of guitar practice before he's ready to record the new Wintersun solos, because only a prime Yngwie could have played them well enough to do justice to their beauty and complexity. Crowdfunding must be needed to fly in Yngwie for private lessons, plus to build Yngwie a new personal sauna room.No dude, we just don't understand the genius that is Wintersun. The music is so complex that Jari needs constant breaks from even writing it to allow his mega-brain to recover from the stress put on it by writing such intricate music. There's totally no way that he's just riding on the hype of an album that should have been out well over 10+ years ago just to make consistent money.
Yeah that's probably it. I didn't mean it in a bad way because he's obviously very good. But his guitar videos are tough for me to watch.
A lot of metal guitar sounds great as part of a song, but harsh in isolation.I always find it crazy when a player of that level has trouble with something. Winter Madness and Beautiful Death have similar passages to the Fire & Ice intro but are much harder to play. Maybe he’s just having an off day cause the dude is a monstrous player. Also nice to see someone play it correctly.
Jari plays with the lowest action I’ve ever seen. The strings are practically on the frets. He uses light gauge strings and has a lightish but very controlled picking hand. I tried his guitar and every note fretted out.
No matter what rig and guitar he always has his staccato pick attack. I agree it isn’t nice to listen to but on CD or in a live setting it pops out of the mix.
