In this Mr. Crowley guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this incredible Ozzy Osbourne song featuring one of the greatest guitarists of all-time, Randy Rhoads.
"Mr. Crowley" is one of the great Randy Rhoads' shining moments. The solos showcase not only jaw dropping technique, but a sense of melody that few guitar players in any style can attain. His solos in "Mr. Crowley" are like complete musical compositions by themselves.
He incorporates many of his signature techniques like rapid-fire pentatonics, incredibly melodic legato arpeggios, and fast trills to create a mesmerizing and stunning performance.
Every note of "Mr. Crowley" including the solos and all of the rhythm guitar parts will be covered. For the bridge, which consists of some harmony guitar lines on the original recording, I have decided to play what Randy did live, which is a fantastic arrangement of the overall harmony but played on just one guitar.
I will also start the lesson with a quick and relatively easy to play guitar arrangement of the opening keyboard solo.
Randy Rhoads had such a well structured playing style that you can easily make sense of what he is using to create his guitar parts and try to apply those techniques and concepts to your own playing.
There is just such a wealth on info you can glean for Randy Rhoads' playing, and learning one of his most signature tunes "Mr. Crowley" is a great way to learn from one of the greatest guitarists to ever live. Good luck!! 😀
