Randy Rhoads Style Legato Lick
This video guitar lesson is the first in our new "Lick Of The Week" lesson series at guitarlessons365.com.
For this first lick I thought it would be fun to take a look at a player we haven't talked about much here at guitarlessons365.com, the late great Randy Rhoads.
Randy Rhoads had a brief but extremely influential career. His technique was flawless a had a big classical influence.
This legato lick is just one small facet of his bag of tricks, but it is a ton of fun to play and will always turn heads in your local music store. 😀
Pay close attention to the muting portion of the video because it is essential to make this lick sound clean.

The tab book to ‘Tribute’ was one of the most important teachers for me learning guitar. Monster player, monster album.
Oh Yeah, I remember many afternoons after school coming home and learning the Tribute album note-for-note. I prefer it over any of the studio albums. I think it really captures his brilliance the best.
Although I,m not usually a live album fan, Tribute is one of few exceptions.
its awsome and realy helping for me especially for legatoo and for my speed building as well
Just started on this today 12-13-11. It’s a tough one. My problem that I need to over come is how I position my thumb on the back of the fretboard. Any suggestions. I notice you thumb is mostly hidden.
Try to keep it pretty much in the middle of the neck. If you need a bigger stretch just lower it a bit more towards the floor. See if that helps.
Really cool lick. Good workout. Great lesson.
Magic Carl. Really good exercise for forcing me to use pinky.
