Flying High Again Guitar Lesson – Ozzy Osbourne
In this Flying High Again guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of Randy Rhoads' guitar parts for this Ozzy Osbourne song off of the Diary Of A Madman album.
The tuning is Eb tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string, Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.
Randy Rhoads' brief two album tenure with Ozzy before his tragic death, produced some incredibly cool guitar based music that still lives on a few decades later. One of my personal favorites being Flying High Again.
The riffs are catchy and relatively easy to play. So hopefuly, you will be able to knock those out in no time.
The solo has everything from fast blues based licks, rapid alternate picked licks and rapid repeated legatos licks with it all culminating in the very dramatic sounding tapping sequences that end the solo. I will take you through each phrase of the solo note-for-note.
Have fun! Carl...

Well, well, well Carl, I am beside myself with excitement for all of the Randy Rhoads material you continue to share with us all to learn. With your style of lessons and this age of technology, everyone now has the tools to net positive results. I am just getting the “Tribute Solo” under my fingers slowly, and now this gem will be a nice distraction. I look forward to seeing which song of Randy’s you tackle next. Thank you once again for working your magic so the rest of us can, in time make beautiful music ourselves. \m/
Thanks a bunch for the kind message David. I think my final goal will be to cover all of Randy’s work with Ozzy. I think it is some of the best guitar based rock music of the 80’s. And of course, as a player, learning from Randy is the ultimate challenge!
