"Actually I think Yngwie Malmsteen is way overrated. Fastest is not necessarily better. Taste is much more important. Knowing when to shred and when to just hold a note or bend a string is something that escaped Yngwie."

My blood just boils when I read crap like this. You´re right - fast is not always best but to say Yngwie does not play with taste is frankly ignorant of his style. You should listen to players like Michael Angelo and Darren Householder to hear true exponents of the fast and tasteless genre.

Yngwie most certainly DOES know when to shred and when to hold a note. Those qualities are what make him - simply - a phenomenon. I suggest you listen to his material again.

"Overrated". I´d like to hear you play guitar like him. Thousands try.

Very, very few come close.

Rant over.
