"Well i popped in this dvd hoping to get some good thorough tips and instruction on some cool speedy neo classical metal riffs. Instead, i see a brief introduction about how amazing and godlike malmsteen (and dont get me wrong, he's and incredible player!!!!) and then he talks little about the riffs he's about to play, then he just shreds away at full speed!! Yes he slows down a little bit, but it's still much too fast to understand exactly what he's playing. He gives no instructions or tips about anything he's playing. Pretty much, it's just him showing off his speed, which if you've heard of malmsteen, you've probably already seen. Good dvds would be Paul Gilbert's Intense Rock DVD, or John Petruccis Rock Discipline DVD.

"I wanted some instruction from Yngwie Malmsteen, and just got a demonstration of his great talent. He did not slow it down much, and gave little or no tips on his technique like I had hoped like some of my other good DVDs do.
I had even bought the book and CD at a local music store, before this DVD came in from Amazon. The three together did not help me much.
Where is the instruction giving tips on technique? Where is a truly slow demonstration with advice on performing fast arpeggios, and maybe some on how to get faster? Other DVDs have it.
With this, you just got Yngwie playing superfast, then "slowing it down" to fast. No advice, no great insight on how he got to be as good as he is, and no specifics on his technique.
I watched if for around fifteen minutes and then put it away.
You have got to watch it with these "instructional" DVDs from guitar legends. With the exception of guys like John Petrucci, all you get is some sheet music and a demonstration. I have been disappointed more than I have been pleased.
Often, the producer's just want to cash in on the name, and don't put much quality into it (or maybe the artist just don't want to sit still long enough to really show you their secerts). Most of the talking is done by the narrator, while the musician just plays."

"Yngwie Malmsteen is the best guitarist in the world! watch how amazing he plays, no body plays the guitar like that, he is influenced by classic music and he changed the whole idea of guitar playing."
