Trust Badge


This lesson pack created by Jay Parmar and I (Nick Layton) has been an absolute labor of love! Along with millions of other guitarists we grew up listening to and admiring the incredible guitar playing of Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads.

From Eddie's masterpiece guitar solo "Eruption," that blew everyone's minds the first time they heard it, to Randy's undeniable riff and solo in the classic Ozzy Osbourne song "Crazy Train," we were hooked! Now that both Randy and Eddie have left this earth we wanted to pay tribute to our Rock N Roll Angels with this new guitar course.

So, it is with much reverence and joy that we now bring you 40 awesome licks in the style of these legendary guitarists...20 licks for Randy and 20 more for Eddie.

It's all here, from Eddie's use of tapping, legato, symmetrical scales and harmonics, to Randy's arpeggio approach, use of minor scales and trills, and the Hungarian minor scale. 

So jump onboard ERUPTION TRAIN and join us on this amazing trip as we explore the styles and sounds of two legendary guitarists: EDDIE VAN HALEN and RANDY RHOADS!!
