I love classical music

Some say that Randy Rhoads would have left Ozzy Osbourne’s band to focus on classical guitar had he not died in the early 1980s. While I would have missed his hard rock stylings (and do miss them greatly…Zakk Wylde is great, but he’s no Randy Rhoads), I’m sure he would have been very successful in the classical genre as well.

I found this cool video of some dude playing “Fur Elise” on YouTube this morning. I could probably play about 10 seconds of the song, but this guy goes a full 3:20 and does a great job with it. Check it out.

I’ve heard some electric versions of the song also, but they are just not as pleasing to my ears.

  1. That is pretty sweet. I am learning bass and kind struggle through some acoustic guitar songs. But nowhere near what this guy can do. My wife is the real musician in our house though! What all do you play?

  2. I have a cheap Squier and an acoustic (can’t remember the brand…haven’t played it in a while). I’m not very good…it’s been a long time since I tried to play seriously.

This is where you talk...
