YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Is Kind Of A Big Deal In Japan
In case you were wondering if Japan is truly more metal than the U.S., look no further than this photo from Fujigen Guitars (a Japanese guitar manufacturer).
The above photo comes from a Japanese high school music room, where they're teaching students from all the greats like Handel, Bach, and of course Yngwie Malmsteen! I don't know if his infamous duck face and guitar stances are part of the syllabus, but this music room looks hell of a lot cooler than my old high school music room. What Yngwie song do you think they'd teach here?
