Randall William "Randy" Rhoads (December 6, 1956  March 19, 1982)
was an American heavy metal guitarist who played with Ozzy Osbourne
and Quiet Riot. A teacher of classical guitar, Rhoads mixed  his
classical music influences with his own heavy metal style.
"Dee" was written for Rhoad's mother and the track can be found in
Ozzy's Blizzard of Oz album. I wish there are more classical piece
by this masterful guitarist but he died tragically at the age of 25.
Despite his relatively short career, Rhoads is a major influence on
neo-classical metal players that emerged in the 1980s such as
Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Angelo Batio and Jason Becker, and he is
cited as an influence by many contemporary heavy metal guitarists.


Technique
32 Bars. Suspend the bass notes are long as possible.
Bar[3],[20],[32] There are 3 occurrence of harmonics. You can acheive
this bell like effect by gently pressing the string and plucking it.
Bar[24] Please listen to the midi to get the timing since the timing
is odd. Make sure to slide and play the double stops or interval
(2 note chord) in time before the pull off.


Tips
If you don't only have an acoustic, you can still play this track.
Randy rhoads played this song on the acoustic guitar.
If you listen to harmonics he played in his recording, you can clearly
hear the pick downward sweep.
In any case, this song works equally well on both the acoustic and
classical guitar.
