Randy Rhoads by Johnny DeMarco – A Video Tutorial – A TTK Exclusive!


Randy Rhoads by Johnny DeMarco :

Learn the techniques of legend Randy Rhoads by gunslinger Johnny DeMarco. Learn Randy’s secrets of having killer chord progressions behind his carefully composed solos.  Johnny will show you finger tapping, with Randy’s flutter-tapping technique!  He’ll also show you how Randy used to work in some blues licks at the tail end of his classically inspired solo runs.  In addition, you’ll see Johnny tear it up with trailing thirds and will discuss some of Randy’s recording techniques, like doubling the takes he did in the studio to make his solos sound larger than life!  Johnny covers muting patterns, trills, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and how to make simple chords sound really good by working in all of these techniques.  Johnny will show you all of this in relation to tunes like Crazy Train, Mr. Crowley and Over the Mountain.  Throw in some diminished tricks, and you have yourself a lesson that will encourage you to take these techniques and make them your own!  If you’ve ever wanted a comprehensive crash-course on Randy Rhoads, Johnny DeMarco is your man, and TheToneKing.com is happy to present this exclusive!

    Commm onn!! This guy is has awful tone and timing, there is not a phaser on crazy train, it’s just double tracked or has a delay on it. and all the runs that he shows are wrong by a mile, theres more to randy then accessding and decending in thirds! Cant understand how he’s a pro!!!

    Thanks for keeping it simple. I’ve been playing for 17 yrs and have never took lessons so this is easy to comprehend with out all the music theory lingo.

    the first song I ever learned was “T.N.T.” by AC/DC

    Randy was amazing. I had “Diary of a Madman” on vinyl back in the day.(that’s a ‘record’, for you young folks LOL)

    Good stuff Johnny.

    Cool little lesson. Some tabs would have been helpful for folks who are slow to work out things by ear (like me). 🙂
