Hey Guys,

I'm not sure where I should post this. Coming this fall, I'm releasing a Randy Rhoads masterclass DVD. Long story short, I was never pleased with the GuitarWorld lessons and I am doing something fairly unique. I am giving an in depth 4+ hour lesson of Randy's licks, tricks, studio techniques, approach and more. I am throwing everything in the kitchen sink. My video has more information. This teaser has a few warts with my playing, walls of text, but it illustrates my point. I have also spent a lot of time crafting Randy's tones using the Axe Fx 2 and have gotten really close. I will also make all of the tones publicly available upon its release. Anyway, constructive feedback is welcomed and encouraged!

Looks very promising Will. I'm always interested in learning more about Randy's style of playing. I'd like to see information about how he used specific scales to create licks and progressions much more than seeing note-for-note lessons (there are MANY of those available) UNLESS the note for note lessons explain where the licks and runs are derived from.

For example showing a lick from Crowley and showing the scale it comes from and how & why it fits the progression would be helpful for those of us who'd like to play in Randy's style when creating our own stuff as opposed to just copying his songs.

At any rate, keep us updated!

The tone is great and it sounds good. I am sure this will be a great video.

Thank you! I'm changing up the format a tad. I was thinking about it from a legal standpoint and if I release it as a DVD set, I'll probably get sued by Ozzy or the Rhoads estate. Instead, I will be releasing the individual lessons on YouTube for free. I should have the 'Believer' lesson released this week. I will be covering the studio/live versions, common errors in tab I've seen and studio tricks. After that, I'll probably do a lesson for either 'Steal Away' or 'Diary of a Madman'.

It's a common mistake to believe that putting something out there for free protects anyone from being sued. Having said that, the only potential objection or legal issue that I can see in what you're doing is in the title, because it's a Will Armitage Masterclass on the style of RR's playing, it's not a Randy Rhoads Masterclass... Big difference.

Very cool, Will. If you do this and do this well (as it seems your on your way to), you'll get a lot of hits on YouTube and properly teach how these classic songs should be played. At the same time, you'll connect kids who love and want to play the music back to Randy and bring some more fans aboard. I hope it leads to bigger and better things for you, also. Perhaps if you start song by song, the Rhoads family may take notice and want to do something with you in the future? Best of luck, mate!

Sky - you are absolutely right and that is fantastic advice. Thank you for making me aware and I will be sure to title my masterclasses appropriately.

Now this is a nice breath of fresh air! I would have loved to been able to do something like this. I think you've nailed the tone in that Believer video. I think I'll be learning a thing or two from these lessons. Thanks for making them available for free!

I know you've said that you use the Axe Fx 2 and I'm sure you'll go over your rig in a video, but any chance you could tell us here what you're using in your setup?

Thanks for sharing man!
