    Default Help with "Yngwie's Killer Licks" instrumental.

    Hey guys, gals, guitar fans, and guitar players!!!
    I'm having a mental block about an Yngwie Malmsteen instrumental track that I have on a burnt cd. I downloaded it from a site about 10 years ago...Might've been Napster, LimeWire, Kazaa, etc. I honestly can't remember...

    The track was listed as "Yngwie's Killer Licks" and it's a short guitar, drum, keys instrumental. Starts off with some cymbal crashes and goes into one of his 5 string minor arpeggio shapes, followed by the usual Malmsteen fare. The track is roughly 2 minutes long.

    It almost sounds like his "Blue" instrumental, in terms of tone and technique, although this one is more straight ahead melodic shredding. There's a half time section in the middle, where it seems like he rolls down the volume a bit. Also a fair amount of delay on the guitar. The track ends with a slide down the neck, with the delayed notes lightly ringing out.

    Sorry for the vague description, but this is driving me nuts Any idea what this tune is called ???

    If you have a smartphone, download sound soundhound or shazam and use that for the i.d.
    I use Soundhound all the time, the indie radio station rarely say what song they are playing, lol. Works great.

    No, that's not it. Thanks for trying though!

    I can say that it's not on the Rising Force, Trilogy, Essential Malmsteen, High Impact, or Relentless cd's. Hope that might help narrow the search a bit? LOL

    Crap. lol. I haven't listened to Yngwie in a several years. If it's after his first 4 or 5 solo albums chances are I won't know it.

    Like I said, it reminds me in a way of his instrumental "Blue", in terms of tone and attack. It might even be from the same album? I don't have any of his albums except the ones I mentioned. It's really a beautiful instrumental, with lots of high bends/vibrato, and melodies that ring out. In addition to the fast picked stuff and sweep arpeggios.

    Damn, this is driving me nuts... Just listened to it again. Track time is about 1:57.
    I tried loading Shazam on my phone. Put it right up to my computer headphones, as well as loud and unplugged - keep getting a "Sorry we didn't get that" message.
