The YNG-WAY, Speed Strategies and Studies

Instant Access

We're proud to present the new lesson course from Chris Brooks. The Yng Way™: Speed Strategies and Studies is a system that will equip with you the tools and knowledge to create blazing guitar lines and sequences using the speed picking system pioneered by guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen and several other notable neoclassical style players. Chris shares insights and revelations accumulated over decades of guitar playing and teaching, and it's all available for you to download right now.


After initially trying to play Yngwie Malmsteen licks with pure alternate picking in the 80s, it wasn't until the mid 90s that Chris Brooks realised something else was going on here. After completing 2 successful instrumental solo albums of his own, Chris began development on this project began in 2011 after some picking videos of Chris went viral on YouTube and caused a bit of a stir, and funny descriptions like "Sorcery" and "Black Magic" appeared in the comments. No, no magic. Just a system.


More than just pure alternate or pure economy picking, The Yng Way™ is a systematic hybrid of string changing strategies, scale layout, pick orientation and consistency in the way picking lines are executed: a true method to the madness.  "Speed Strategies and Studies" uses high quality video demonstrations and detailed transcriptions in both PDF and Guitar Pro to help you understand every facet of the system, beginning with a 20 minute video on the "Yng Way™" picking system and what it takes to emulate this iconic picking style, even down to details about pick grip and hand positioning. The guesswork has been completely removed!


At the heart of the practical material are 24 study lines that bring together shifting and positional scale lines, sequences, single string lines and string changing mechanics. And rather than stop there, the pack also includes a minor scale theory lesson, 6 guitar backing tracks, 13 development drills (video & TAB) for chop building, and a note-for-note transcription of the opening guitar solo. Total video running time is nearly 2 hours!


Getting your copy of Chris Brooks' new lesson course will put you on the fast track to understanding and mastering concepts that may take years to learn otherwise. It's your chance to study with a guitarist who has the playing experience and know-how to talk you through your system and demonstrate the results that are possible.
