Randy Rhoads only recorded 2 albums with Ozzy Osbourne before his untimely death. But he had a tremendous impact on guitarists of the 1980’s and beyond. This is one of Randy’s lead fills in the song “Crazy Train”. It’s in the key of F# minor and uses a combination of the F# minor scale, and the F# blues scale.
The red number is the note that you should use as your guide when playing the lick in other keys. In this case the note is an F#. If you wanted to play this lick in A minor, you would just move everything up 3 frets so that the number in red would be at the 5th fret on the first string (A).
