Steal Away (The Night) Guitar Lesson – Ozzy Osbourne/Randy Rhoads

In this Steal Away (The Night) guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play Randy Rhoads' amazing guitar parts for the live Tribute album version of this awesome song, note-for-note.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

The Ozzy Osbourne/Randy Rhoads Tribute album has always been my absolute favorite Ozzy Osbourne album. I spent countless hours putting on legendary air guitar concerts while listening to it as a teenager. Randy's playing is on FIRE the entire album. The guitar tone sounds HUGE and the energy is just infectious that IMO, it surpasses the original recorded versions of the songs they performed.

One of my favorite songs off the album is "Steal Away (The Night)". When Randy launches into the main riff, it just kicks everything up to a whole 'nother level!

I will take you through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the recording. Randy throws in lots of fills all over the place which is another great aspect of his live performances. If there are any differences between his live performance and the original studio version, I will point that out as well.

I hope you guys enjoy learning yet another masterpiece from the hands of one of the greatest to ever live, Randy Rhoads! Carl...

    Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!!!! I have just started my Randy Rhoads Journey and this is one of my favorite riffs!!. I am so excited I will be adding this to Crazy Train and I don’t Know, these are all challenging songs but I am 100% up for it. As always you do such a great job of teaching it step by step!!

    Oh yeah!!! This is fantastic. I can’t get through a game of pool or anything without air-guitaring this song to death. Yes, air guitar when you’re almost 60 years old is acceptable.

    I have rediscovered Randy recently. He was such a huge influence on my teenage musical years. I am really enjoying listening to his work more closely, and learning how to actually play his songs properly.

    Thank you so much for throwing this one together for us. I’ll probably have to get myself that polka dot Flying V to make it authentic.

    Guitar World dedicated an entire issue to Randy, along with your passion to this song, it is a must learn. I took your lead on playing this song for five hours and loved every minute of it! Thanks again!
