Crazy Train solo attempt #1

I’ve gotten to where I don’t like to post a lot due to my social anxiety, but my wife @Alicia Willis insisted, so here is my rough attempt at the Crazy Train solo.
Definitely getting there, Ash! I can SEE your tension. You need to tell Alicia (who is right, by the way) that she needs to rub your shoulders before you hit record! Keep it up, bro!
I stay tense nowadays, especially being an ER nurse during a pandemic. I can’t remember the last time I was able to relax. And thanks!
 
Particularly working on bends with vibrato here. I can do each by themselves ok but adding vibrato while holding a bend is tough. I’ve found a have to change my grip slightly when adding vibrato to a bend. And trying to get the correct bend with vibrato up to speed and rhythm is a whole different ballgame lol.

Fantastic man. As a huge randy rhoads fan, you’re killing it! I wont repeat what the dudes before me said, except to not be afraid of posting here! Ive always loved your videos! But heres my advice (and ill be making a video to demonstrate this soon.) when bending, dont be afraid to put your thumb over top of your fretboard. It gives you a lot more control, and it feels like you’re gripping a baseball bat! This makes it so much easier to bend, and also add that vibrato on the end of a bend! Keep up the great work!

Thanks! I’ve been trying to adjust my grip and my wrist to get the bends and vibrato better. Getting them both right has been a thorn in my side here lately.
