Crazy Free Lesson Video

Hey guys! I had a lot of fun doing this video and those big rings on my right hand were provided to me by Gothic jewellery.  I figured this would be the perfect video to display these because I always think of Joe Perry and his bling.

I’d like to add a few notes about the video and tab. For starters, I decided to add the chords because I think this is a chord driven song for the most part.  This was a tough mix to crack.  Just because everything gels so smoothly in their studio take.  In my left speaker, I couldn’t tell if Joe Perry was playing the root notes of the chords so I have them in brackets. If you feel like leaving those out and just hitting the chords where the snare hits are, go for it.  I liked upstroking the chords also and it sounds like he’s doing that.  It’s all in how you are feeling out the song.

I realize that I didn’t add the acoustic guitar in the second verse.  I did some harmony takes with it as well, and figured it would be just too much to add to the screen and confusing. So I have the tab included in the PDF file which you can get from music notes.  The guitar in the right speaker is also added in that as well.  

Have fun with this guys. It’s a great song and has a really cool solo. Are there any more Aerosmith songs? I think “Amazing” has a cool solo.

Backing Track Video

Here is the backing track video for Crazy, with my main rhythm and solo tracks removed. This will make it easier to jam along with the Aerosmith cover recording lesson, and still be allow you to read the guitar tab. For even more control, check out the Crazy isolated tracks below. 

Crazy was recorded in Standard tuning.

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to Crazy. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
