Well I was watching this video from last year's VH1 Rock Honors when ozzy played Crazy Train.Then I noticed it sounded almost exactly identical another version on youtube.I played the two together and everything past the intro solo fill was exactly spot on and identical.If you don't believe me watch both these vids past the intro and see what I mean.

Have you considered that maybe, just maybe he practices the intro solo so he doesn't play some random crap and ruin the song in front of the audience and the whole country?

I'm aware is very good at playing but it just seemed strange that the videos sounded exactly alike.

Theres no way in hell he made it this far by being a fake man. He's a very talented guitar player, he probably practiced that song forever and got it where he never missed a note.

Good guitarist play a different solo every night. Hearing the same boring solo is talentless, anyone (within reason) could learn that solo and play it night after night. It takes some real talent to modify it and play it slightly different each night. Therefore, he's just an average guitarist.

Elaborate. I know you don't agree with me, but what part don't you agree with?

um what if the solo isn't boring? everyone can generally write music that is better sounding and fits with the song better than they can improvise, sometimes things should be left alone. its like saying a singer should sing different melodies every time they sing a song or its boring, variation can be good but its in no way mandatory

I agree with this.


On topic though, I seriously doubt Zakk is a fake or anything like that. That being said, I can't stand him tbh.

First of all, certain songs have certain solos that are usually originated on the studio version of the song. Then, the guitarist might play a longer version or a slightly altered version live. However, it will still be based on the original version of the solo. Also, the guitarist will probably play the same solo night after night because he has developed the solo for the tour and aims for perfection rather than possibly screwing up something he improvises.

If you look at the Wikipedia entry for ZW, you'll see that he has been playing with Ozzy for his entire professional career. He has played every Ozzy song a zillion times and has them all nailed! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zakk_Wylde

I'm inclined to agree that ZW does overdo the pinch harmonics. However he is known for using them a lot and if it's your thing, there is probably no one better than him. You try squeezing a bunch of perfect pinches into a solo with all 64th notes!
