Best Yngwie J. Malmsteen SongsA natural shredder from Sweden. What are his best songs?
The Top Ten
This scares me. How does he play with such high action and how does he play with 8 gauge strings tuned a half step down - DenyYourMaker
this is a masterpiece of shredding, Yngwie is a master! - rock2metal
12 years old can play "far beyond the sun" but this masterpiece has amazingly complex alt picking downscales, and crazy sweeps here and there. Not only is this work of art hard to play its also so melodic. I'm sure Yngwie Malmsteen put lots of time into this composition and made his best.
Beautiful... Absolutely beautiful... Such feeling and emotion and a perfect display of skill, technique and speed to compliment it. Such a splendid piece of music put together by Yngwie J. Malmsteen. A Neo-Classical masterpiece.
Black star is a beautiful song but far beyond the sun is just insane... Here's nothing else like it... Yngwie J Malmsteen is a brilliant shredder easily one of the best in the world right now... I'd also like to see I am a viking higher on the list
Black Star is a beautiful instrumental, I Am A Viking is beast, and Rising Force is a cool song, but Far Beyond The Sun is a masterpiece. #1 to me personally. Best solos. Such a crazy song. And one of the best instrumentals ever. Great guitarist Yngwie is.
CRAZY! crazy! CRAZY! crazy! CRAZY! crazy!
This is one hell of guitarrist.
Don't have so much fame as Metallica or Megadeth or Slash (who is better than Yngwie) but is one guy with a future on his HANDS and FINGERS! - joaocarvalho
The BEST. This is best classic song ever. He is Beethoven of metal
This is the song that Blackmore would have been proud of -- sensational soloing in a great tune. The whole of this album is great, but this song kicks it off in amazing style
All Yngwie's qualities in one driving song - and none of his self-indulgence. Love this track - and album.
No mention of making love. I rate that as one of his best songs
It's one of the songs that hypes me the most, literally Yngwie expression of his soul
I am a viking is his greatest song. I have been a fan since 1984. GB
molto arpeggiosa 2nd!? I can think of more than 10 songs from YJM better than that one, like this one
Best overall song. Great solos with a super awesome riff to bang your head to.
The start of the solo still blows me away 20 years later!
not better than the original Aerosmith version, but Yngwie and Dio can make good covers - rock2metal
Aerosmith original is an all time favorite of mine but I honestly think this cover version is better - better vox and guitars. - Metal_Treasure
It's Trilogy Suite Opus 5, it's the best there is to offer. While it's mostly a live track with the breaks in the song for Yngwie to absorb the glory, the solid chunks of it are the most iconic of all his intrumentals, and truly describes his style.
Gorgeous marriage of power and feeling. Up there with the Rising Force instrumentals.
This probably has his best guitar work - GreenDayFan21
A LOT OF MUSIC
Have you ever felt multiple emotions during a song?
Skill and Soul
Adiagno, such an amazing track; Yngwie relies on right here. Acoustic part is just INCREDIBLE!
One of the best and most beautiful ballads in the world. - Metal_Treasure
Always inspired and utterly inprisoned by yngwees music
like a Persian theme, you will like this song - rock2metal
Isn't this from richie blackmore when he was with rainbow
Yes, this is a Rainbow cover (Dio and Ritchie). Also check out the original - it's one of the top 3 Rainbow songs. - Metal_Treasure
That's Indian Intro I think. :D Nice Song by the way. Loved it.
Not Indian, Ritchie Blackmore used the so called Arabic scale. - Metal_Treasure
Catchy chorus, great riffs, and the first section of the solo is one of the best melodies I have ever listened to.
Amazing.. amazing melodies.. I love this song the most
What an amazing song! His vocals are so great - xXEnglishGothXx
Come on, guys. This is obviously his best solo, and has some of the most kickass vocals I have ever heard. - bighercules
Just I'll Never Forget..
Most underrated yngwie's instrumental ever! Yngwie at his finest.
Most underrated Yngwie song ever. Period!
Very beautiful and melodic song... Yngwie at his best.
I think this is the best and Trilogy suite Opus 5 would be second
Best of the Best. Accustic and Distortion awesomely mixed. Heart and Soul playing together. God and Malmsteen, Malmsteen as God.
More interesting than most of his other instrumentals despite it's disastrous production... perhaps there are more than 10 other songs that are better than this one but I don't see them here...
this song isn't from this world, the guitar and bass shred! - rock2metal
Even when I play Counter Strike I remember this song because I always playing counter Strike along with listening this song when I was a child..
Most emotional song, just beautiful
The best guitar solo ever
At least 6! great song
Why did I have to add this!?!?! This is my favorite! Yngwie is a very talented man, and deserves much more recognition. I'm about to go see him in concert right now, and I can't wait! God Bless you, and may Yngwie soon be recognized as he deserves.
THE BEST HAIR SONG OF ALL TIME! ! ! ! ! !
I CANNOT STRESS THIS MORE! ! !
"Into Valhalla" is way better its truly the work of a god.
This ones pretty good too though
Yngwie is not a human while playing this, he is more like a god.
One of his best instrumentals to date, very musical and technical with feelings.
Nice sweet instrumental, with great sound
Best Malmsteen song! Very beautiful and very deadly
This is such a great song why is it not higher?
Why is this so low. Why.
It's such a great song!
Best of the best. - Servbot
This song is awesome, so why isn't it higher? - Servbot
A song forgotten by fans but Magnum Opus had decent moments even if it's a weak record.
Great song, goran edman vocal is number 1 ever
By diki in indonesia, the great vokall, best aqustiq ever
Love song woow
One of the greatest feel good 80's rock songs ever
I'm suprised this isn't higher. My personal 2nd favorite. - xXEnglishGothXx
Best guitar solo ever
Mark boals is a monster
This song have a very deep meaning in lyric and the vocals looks strength.
Such a great song!
I can't believe this isn't on the list yet. Blitzkrieg is one of Yngwie's best performances ever. It's so incredibly technical and blazing fast towards the end
From What I heard and the comments I got from playing this, the crowd loved it
Slow, steady and very melodic. Fast when it needs to be and makes use of a nice shift between major and minor keys. lovely!
One of his best! :D
