Back in 1980, I bought my very first record album from Tower Records (remember them?) in San Francisco. It was “Blizzard Of Ozz” by Ozzy Osbourne. I don’t really know why I bought that album. The cover kind of freaked me out and I don’t think I even knew who Black Sabbath was at the time. Regardless of my sheltered childhood I fortunately purchased one of the most momentous metal albums of all-time. The guitar playing of Randy Rhoads on that album continues to set a benchmark for all hard-rockers with a sensitive side. The fact that almost every guitar part, even the leads, were double or triple tracked is still a mind blower.
In the following video guitar lesson I show the opening riff and verse guitar parts for “Crazy Train” both full and half speed.
If you like this lesson and want to dig in on this song or Ozzy/Randy in general, consider taking private lessons with me. You might also like to check out the following resources:
