What can I say about Randy Rhoads' incredible playing that hasn't been said a million times before by anyone that has listened to his work with Ozzy Osbourne on the Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman albums. He was truly a gift to the musical world and it is always a huge honor to me when I can do my little part to keep his amazing guitar playing inspiring new generations of guitar players all over the world.
For this lesson, I will be going through the original studio version of "Goodbye To Romance" section-by-section. As I mention in the video lesson, there are a lot of guitar layers on this song. So I have chosen to focus on what I feel is the main part for each section so that the whole thing can be played with just one guitarist.
Each section of the song will be covered in the order that each appeared on the original recording, including towards the end of the video lesson, Randy's incredible guitar solo.
Randy Rhoads wrote some incredible solos in his all too brief career as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist.
This "Goodbye To Romance" solo lesson will show you how to play one of his most memorable and accessible guitar solos.
Most of Randy Rhoads' solos are extremely demanding and require a very advanced technique to perform correctly. However, in writing this "Goodbye To Romance" solo, Randy Rhoads keeps a relatively short leash on his virtuosic chops in favor of a highly melodic and soaring musical statement.
Don't let me fool you though, there are still plenty of quick licks in this solo to challenge just about any guitarist.
So take your time and try to do this solo justice. The late great Randy Rhoads deserves nothing less. 🙂
