50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know – #49 – Aleister

FULL COURSE, TAB, JAM TRACKS: truefire.at More free guitar lessons: bit.ly Randy Rhodes left this world all too early, but not before setting the world on fire with the Oz-man in the early 80’s. From his archaic shaped Flying-V style Jacksons to his polka dot decor, Randy was an original through and through. This next lick delves into the concept of repetition as heard in Randy’s explosive entrance into his first solo on the Blizzard of Oz track, “Mr. Crowley” where he deflty lays down the lick of licks four times over before burning down the Dm pentatonic in 16th note triplets. The tension built by repeating that first lick is then released by the flurry that follows–listen and learn!
