Dee, by Randy Rhoads, is a beautiful piece of music he composed for his mother and was released on Ozzy Osbourne’s 1980 album, Blizzard of Ozz. Randy Rhoads is one of my favorite guitarists. He was a master composer who composed so many memorable themes and solos.
What I love about this piece is that it is a mixture of older and new styles. He quotes Bourree in E minor by J.S. Bach but yet he also has chords and figures which were common to popular styles in the 1980s.
Dee is a beautiful piece of music composed by one of my favorite guitarists, Randy Rhoads. He helped form the band Quiet Riot before joining Ozzy Osbourne. Dee appears on The Blizzard of Ozz album and shows Rhoads’ classical guitar chops. There is even a reference of the opening of the Bach Bouree in the middle of Dee.
Randy Rhoads is one of my favorite guitarists and this piece, Dee, is a beautiful piece written in the classical style. Rhoads played with Ozzy Osbourne back in Ozzy’s early solo recordings. Rhoads dedicated this song to his mother. Score/tab available at my website.
