VIKING (Yngwie Malmsteen) Classical Guitar arrangement - Ben Woods - Nylon String Stratocaster

Download contains a PDF of the sheet music in notation and tablature, the MP3 from video, and the GuitarPro6 file.

Here's my solo guitar arrangement of the Yngwie Malmsteen's famous song 'I am a Viking'.
I arranged this piece as a classical tremelo study, since it has such a great melody and counterpoint chords underneath.  The guitar is a rare Yngwie Malmsteen signature Nylon String stratocaster.  Only 50 made in by Fender Japan in the mid 90's.

Hint: when learning this piece, first learn and memorize the notes with the sheet music/tabs provided, then watch the video in youtube and click on the gear icon in the bottom right corner of the player - got to speed - adjust to .5 and play along at half-speed. The pitch doesn't change, it only slows it down. Then you will be on your way.
