Music Dorkery



The release of David Lee Roth’s isolated vocal track from “Runnin’ With the Devil” was an Internet goldmine resulting in one of the most entertaining soundboards in the history of ever and countless mash-ups, some good and some not-so-good. While the surfacing of what appears to be Randy Rhoads’ isolated guitar tracks from “Crazy Train” might not be as hilarious, it’s sure to provide guitar nerds with plenty of masturbatory material and will undoubtedly result in more mash-ups than a sack of potatoes.

I suppose we have no way of knowing whether the audio, posted by, is actually the Randy Rhoads original or some imposter with too much time on their hands, but let’s assume for the moment that it is in fact the real deal. I love love love how not everything is perfect; you can hear accidental pick scrapes and a couple of slightly rough transitions. According to there are absolutely no effects on the guitars, just one track panned hard right and a separately-recorded double panned hard-left, resulting in the chorus-y effect you’re hearing. I also dig how you can hear two distinct tracks during the guitar solo, which definitely adds character.
