YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Comments On "Disabled" Indonesian Guitarist YANA MULYANA - "I Feel Truly Blessed When My Music Touches Individuals"

Guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen has checked in via his official Facebook page with the following message:

"I feel truly blessed when my music touches individuals; they feel the energy in such a way that their disability no longer can hold them back. God bless them."

Malmsteen issued the message following a February 2nd posting by Guitar World, found below:

"As you can see in the top video below, Indonesian guitarist Yana Mulyana has overcome some serious obstacles in order to reach his guitar-playing goals. The video, which shows Mulyana performing Yngwie Malmsteen's 'Brothers', is certainly inspirational.

As pointed out in this Guit-a-Grip column about 'working with limitations,' Mulyana has some very real physical impediments that make playing the guitar in a 'traditional' manner impossible. However, his workaround is clearly visible in the video below. We've also included a 2010 live performance of "Brothers" by Malmsteen for reference."
