Guitar Control, the online musical instruction company that has over 270 videos on You Tube alone, has added yet another clip to their arsenal of guitar lessons. It’s in the form of fast video and should be a good exercise for those that are looking to learn guitar riffs

Currently, given convenient and complimentary lessons like these, whenever someone wants to know how to play Crazy Train on guitar, or practically anything else, all they have to do is log in, plug in, and start playing, or at least try anyways.

Silvio Gazquez, teacher with GuitarControl.com and 2x finalist in the international Guitar Idol competition, has yet another lesson in his Lick of the Day series. In this one, he shows viewers how to play the infamous guitar riff from the classic song Crazy Train off of the 1980 Ozzy Osbourne album titled, Blizzard of Oz.

Ozzy Osbourne has slowly but surely become a household name over the last several decades. If people weren’t already aware of him as a musician, then they finally found out who he was when he and his family became reality television stars a few years back. Although Randy Rhoads, Ozzy’s guitarist that originally played this riff in the recording, died tragically in 1982, he left some licks that we’ll be listening to for a long, long time.

This guitar lesson may be perfect for practicing speed and improving coordination skills. Even though it’s not the entire song, it’s usually recommended that beginners start with the basics anyways. A student should actually see more progress by picking up part of a song rather than trying to tackle the whole tune at once. Also, Silvio always plays the riffs twice, once at the regular speed and once at a much slower rate, which is helpful.

Currently, given convenient and complimentary lessons like these, whenever someone wants to know how to play Crazy Train on guitar, or practically anything else, all they have to do is log in, plug in, and start playing, or at least try anyways. Until recently, a person typically had to rely on books and/or costly lessons in order to learn an instrument, but thanks to cyberspace, it appears as though that’s not the case anymore!
