    Default My cover of "Dee" by Randy Rhoads

    So, I've been interested in classical guitar for a while now, so last month I went out and bought a Yamaha Classical Acoustic/Electric. It's a CGX171CCA, and I'd highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get a nice nylon string. Anyway, I've always wanted to learn the short Randy Rhoads acoustic instrumental "Dee", from the Blizzard of Ozz album, so that was the first thing that I worked on when I got this guitar. After a couple weeks practice, I recorded myself playing it and uploaded it to YouTube. So, check it out and tell me what you think!

    Ummmm, tell me that you just didn't wake up one day and decide, "Hey! I want to learn how to play the guitar!" Because if you did, I hate you. I have been playing for years and can't play like that!

    Very nice job!

    LOL, nah, I've been playing for 7 or 8 years now! I've just never played any type of fingerstyle/Classical-esque guitar until recently. Thank you for the compliment!

    nice job. i play this on a regular acoustic which doesnt sound half as good. i always wanted a classical guitar, but everytime im in a store and pick one up, it just doesnt feel right with the wide and flat fretboard. i should just buy one and get used to it.

    Awesome job!

    Not to take anything away from your performance as it was truly great but I thought people would also enjoy seeing Chelsea Constable at age 11 performing Dee...

    lol, I know, I know... I have no idea why I didn't smile at the end. I think I was nervous in front of my own camera or something. Why so serious?

    you should really try and perservere with it, i always said if i could have a classical neck on an electric then i'd be the happiest guitarist alive, i have MASSIVE hands and sometimes its a burden because playing past the 15th fret my fingers get tied up in knots, although i dont like flat fretboards on a regular electric neck....guess i'm just weird!
