check out Leo Brouwer etudes for original 1972 version copied almost note for note by Randy Rhoads
Leo is alive and well -cuban classical guitarist
Randy must have studied his etudes since one of them sounds exactly like his intro to Diary of a Madman guitar intro

Randy did copy it, because Ozzy heard Randy playing it and liked it. Randy was also being sued because of it, but the lawsuit was dropped when they found out Randy had passed.

I assumed some people did not know this
I just saw Kirk Hammett Metallica band state on That Metal Show yesterday
that Randy was very talented in coming up with the intro to Diary of a Madman
I guess the big stars do not know this
maybe the hardcore fans already know this

My take, it was Ozzy's doing after overhearing the guitar lesson..But if you play, and you can play DOAM, there are so many other parts to the song that make it special..Definitely once of my favorites to jam too!

Agreed, Diary is filled with great parts. Honestly I never think of the intro being copied unless someone mentions it.

I was always bummed they never played Diary live so the first time I got to listen to the seminar it was like musical heaven. I wish he would have played the solo but I'm so thankful he played all of the other bits.

I've always thought the reason they never did it live was due to the high notes. Ozzy was pretty wrecked at times. He struggled with stuff like Over the Mountain......

I'm sure you're right. Not only would his voice break but he'd screw the lyrics up too. :P

Shows you what a true musician he really was...Great Lesson...No way Ozzy could have pulled that song off live in those days (without the teleprompter)..just think how many times in Over the mountain he says .."mind on a carpet"...He would have butchered the bridge!
