Learn How to Play Crazy Train on Guitar

Hi, it’s Brian Parham, the guitar sensei, with another free guitar tutorial for kids. In today’s free guitar lesson for kids, I will teach your child how to play the opening riff to Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.” Crazy Train is the perfect song for students who have been playing the guitar for a few months, know how to play a handful of riffs, and are ready to tackle a slightly harder challenge.

Crazy Train Guitar Tab

Guitar tabs are musical symbols for the guitar. Similar to written words, guitar tabs tell you which frets to play on the guitar. The best guitar tabs also provide you with the rhythm as well. For that reason, guitar tabs make learning how to play easy guitar riffs like Crazy Train dead easy. That’s why I included Crazy Train tabs on-screen to help your child learn how to play Crazy Train as quickly and efficiently as possible.

What is a Guitar Riff?

A lot of students get confused about the difference between guitar chords and guitar riffs, so I’m going to clear that up right now. A chord is two or more notes played on the guitar at the same time. On the other hand, a guitar riff is short, repeated musical phrases. It’s the part of the son that gets stuck in your head because it sounds so cool!

Crazy Train Chords

Once you learn how to play the Crazy Train intro guitar riff, try tackling the power chords. Best of all, power chords are perfect for kids of all ages because they are two-note chords played with the root and the fifth degree of any major scale.
