    I think most guitarists would be proud when they could play this the way you did!

    I saw the video and i must say I like your playing very much. I tried some shredding by using guitar pro but it just doesn't happen for long riffs. Dunno if there's a lot of theory involved.
    Btw how long you been playing?

    Well i referred to the tabs only for the first 15 secs just to figure out the scale. Rest of the song is played by listening and figuring out the parts...

    Yes the song is completely theory based....I am playing it on F#Minor harmonic scale and Fdiminished chord throughout for fast runs. Its played Standard tuning. Though the actual song is half step higher i guess.

    Once u learn the actual scale parts i.e. A major or F#harmonic minor the song gets really very easy..except the fast parts which are impossible for me to play at the speed played in the song. But U can always improvise the parts which u cant play at that speed...I have been playing for 6 years now...

    The feel is missing. Don't just run through the notes. But not bad at all.

    Thanks for this thread - I revisited my Malmsteen library after so long!
    Far beyond sun ... is different from Eclipse.

    I was thinking about Eclipse while going through this thread.
    Nonetheless, Malmsteen songs are not really "simple" in any sense.

    have you turned down the tempo a bit by any chance? it's been ages since i've heard the original but after watching your vid i checked out a related youtube link of this chick playing this song which is significantly faster: Far Beyond the Sun by Yngwie Malmsteen by Afterschool
    or has she turned it up?

    great attempt by the way :grin:
