Guitar Lick Of The Week April 26, 2016 Share Tweet Share The harmonic minor scale was rarely ever heard in rock before Yngwie Malmsteen hit the hard rock guitar scene. His mastery of the scale and addition of using diminished licks create a neo-classical movement. The harmonic minor scale is a cool variation of the tradition minor scale. The only difference is that the harmonic minor has a raised 7th which creates a very cool sounding minor scale. This harmonic minor lick is very similar to what Yngwie plays on I’ll See The Light Tonight.
