    OK,

    If you insist!
    I have the Randy Rhoads book with tab...The old one with Crazy Train in it.

    Tonight...I promise! :wink:

    My neighbors are gonna hate me cuz I'm gonna do it on the Dual Rectro...No headphones tonite... :shock:
     
  2. make sure you get that first A chord right (not using the bar chord for the first of the main verse chord progression thingy) heres a good tab (i did this tab and being my humble self i must say its perfect to blizzard)

    Thanks RR is my hero....

    I copied/pasted/printed and will start memorizing. Thursdays and Fridays are my nights with no kids or GF's to bug me.
    Just me, my SG or LP and Coors Light......

    Should I do this on the LP or SG?
    Maybe the Flying V?
    Too many choices.... :wink:
     
  4. i like the lp for crazy train,

    ps alot of tabs you find on the internet or in books are wrong for the album version of rhoads tunes

    The first note in crazy train is F# .... I'll record it and post it if you want. (Standard tuning, Concert pitch)

    I have a chart
    F# it is
    I will get this but I'm a bit slow in some areas and genius in others.
    it makes for a wierd learning curve.

    Thanks Blooz :D
     
  10. im probably wrong about the chord, but the tab is PERFECT standard tuning, it should sound somthing like this...only less distortion, and not as sloppy

    it just takes alot of practice to get it sounding almost normal
