Recently I've had a chance to meet Marco at "Klavitara Zagreb Festival" where we performed together among many other great musicians. We arranged this interview so here it is.

Rossel Guitars - Koblenz (Germany)

A week ago, a friend from Germany asked me to help him with a recording project. He asked me to just turn up. I didn’t even have to bring my guitar with me, as “everything will be provided”. He knew a local guitar shop whose owner was happy to lend me a couple of guitars to use on the project. Without any expectation we went to that shop to try some guitars and boy, oh boy... was there a surprise waiting...

Lick of the week no. 27 - Robben Ford Style Blues in C

Hi everyone.

It's been a while I haven't done a lick of the week. Here we have a nice blues Robben Ford Style lick in the key of C which you can use in any 12 bar blues.

Have fun.

Lick of the week no. 19 - Boogie in A

Hi everybody. This time we have something cool derived out of the position 2 in A blues scale. We're playing over a blues boogie in A, so this lick would fit perfectly in something like Joe Satriani's "Satch Boogie"

Yngwie Malmsteen licks
Yngwie Malmsteen is undoubtedly the most inspiring guitarist when it comes to the neoclassical style of guitar playing. I don't know any single neoclassical fan that doesn't put Yngwie at the top of their list. He was a huge inspiration to me when I was discovering this style of playing. After he released his first solo album, the new guitar revolution had started and guitar playing wasn't the same anymore. He introduced a kickass technique with arpeggios, picking and catchy melodies mixed into rock, metal and baroque style, all played extremely fast. Some guitarists inroduced similar playing before Yngwie but when he came onto the scene, everyone got addicted. I trully recommend his masterpieces: Rising Force, Odyssey, Trilogy, Seventh Sign... All these albums completely changed my way of playing guitar so I decided to show you some of my favorite Yngwie licks and I hope that neoclassical fans will find it useful.
