Another solo cover… First of the year… The solo from Crazy Train by Blizzard of Ozz.
There are so many covers of this floating around the ‘net, not to mention different interpretations of the original by successive guitarists in Ozzy Osbourne’s band, so I changed the phrasing slightly in a few parts. The original, as played by Randy Rhoads, is quite loosely double-tracked and it’s impossible to get the same vibe without doing so.
It’s the first outing for my Les Paul – a 2016 traditional in Honeyburst. I’ve replaced the pickups with Seymour Duncan (a Custom Custom at the bridge and Pearly Gates in the neck). You can’t get much of an impression of the flame top in this video as I’m not facing the light source.
Hope you like it!
