As I was listening to Diary the other day that question popped in my head. It was actually pretty difficult for me to answer.

What 5 solos would you tell someone to listen to that had never heard of Randy? Also the Crowley solos count as one or you can specify which one but if you want both just put Crowley.

My 5 solos would be:

Crazy Train
Crowley
Flying High Again
Goodbye to Romance
Over the Mountain

I felt like these would be a great entrance into his body of work. Popular songs with great solos and memorable licks in each. Once they get passed the intro stage I'd thrown in others like Tonight, Revelation Mother Earth and Diary of a Madman.

Throw down your lists!

Tonight
Flying
IDK
Crowley
Revelation

close was "Good bye" because it's so melodic, but I went for a bit of diversity so the new bee could get multiple techniques..

I would include the spotlight solo from Tribute just to show the skill Randy had, then I would choose:

2. The outro solo on Mr. Crowley
3. The outro solo on Tonight
4. Over the Mountain
5. Believer (the version on the 2002 remaster)

I was thinking more along the lines of just Blizzard and Diary but yeah Spotlight would certainly be a must listen to.

The Tonight solos are probably favorite of his.

Good, attention-grabbing solos which are interesting, cool, and show Randy's technical proficiency.

I wouldn't necessarily choose Crazy Train for the solo, but rather for its kickass riff :twisted:

Fair enough, though the solo isn't as intricate as others, it's an exhilarating one, and helps to capture what Randy brought to the table.

When I think of the Crazy Train solo, I think about tapping and when I think about tapping…
well, let's just say that it's not what I associate Randy with :wink: I wouldn't show somebody
the No Bone Movies solo either for the very same reason.

Ok, but it's one of his best known solos, and a very accessible place for most people to start isn't it? Most people aren't (unless they're guitar players themselves) interested in tapping, and what other techniques Randy used to craft the songs. They are interested in how the end result sounds.

The solo to Crazy Train is definitely one I would have a new listener start with. Listen to the seminar and you'll hear someone in the background hum the next lick right after Randy stops in that solo. A classic kick ass solo.

Thank you. My point exactly.
