Here’s a cover of Jake E Lee’s classic solo from Ozzy’s Bark at the Moon.
This is a little longer than some of my other videos – I keep covering solos, which means my vids usually end up being a minute long. The riff for Bark at the Moon is a real classic, so I included that and some of the sections leading up the solo, as well as the outro. I think this song is Jake E Lee’s finest.
When I first did recorded it, I realised there was something wrong with the rhythm parts – I couldn’t place it until I went back to the original and realised how LITTLE gain Jake uses on his rhythm tone. The tone I was using just sounded so wrong – the rhythm parts are very “busy”, and it turns to mush if you have too much gain. So I had to go back and re-record the rhythms – if the parts look slightly out of sync, that’s why! The solo is from my first recording though.
Gear-wise I used my Laney Ironheart IRT Studio as usual. For the solo, I used a YJM308 overdrive pedal for a boost.
Hope you like it!
