Baroque & Roll
I can thank Yngwie Malmsteen for helping me take my guitar playing to the next level. I discovered his music as a teenager, when I fell off my bike at the age of 13 and couldn’t play guitar for a week. My brother recommended that I check out Yngwie Malmsteen and I’m thankful to this day that I did. Hearing songs like “Black Star” and “Far Beyond The Sun” completely blew me away, thanks to his incredible technique and neoclassical sound. “Baroque & Roll,” which was released in 2002 on the “Attack!!” album, captures both the melodic and the virtuoso essence of Yngwie Malmsteen. I was first introduced to this song while watching the G3 Live in Denver DVD. It instantly became one of my favorite songs, and I can’t think of a better pick for a humble tribute to The Maestro himself.
