Album: Live & Loud

Time Signature: 4/4

I liked Zakk Wylde's rendition of Crazy Train better, although without Randy Rhoads, 
this wouldn't have been possible.

I included a few things that he does differently, such as his added Pinched Harmonics, 
but I didn't include the fills in the verses. Enjoy!

Tune down a Half Step (Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb)

Intro 2x
eb|----------------|---------------|--------------|---------------|
Bb|----------------|---------------|--------------|---------------|
Gb|----------------|---------------|--------------|-7-7-----------|
Db|-4-4------------|-7-7-----------|-4-4----------|-7-7-----------|
Ab|-4-4------------|-7-7----2-2----|-4-4----------|-5-5----2-2----|
Eb|-2-2------------|-5-5----0-0----|-2-2----------|--------0-0----|

The second time you play the intro, there is a P.H. at the 6th fret on the G string 
after the second F#5 chord. The pitch is C#.

                                      All half step bends
                                              |
                                              |
eb|----------------|-12b13----12~~~-|----------------------|--------|
Bb|-12b14----12~~~-|----------------|-10b11-10-10-10-10-10-|-10~~~--|
Gb|----------------|----------------|----------------------|--------|
Db|----------------|----------------|----------------------|--------|
Ab|----------------|----------------|----------------------|--------|
Eb|----------------|----------------|----------------------|--------|

  Slow gradual bend and release
eb|----------------|----------------|----------------------|--------|
Bb|-4b5r4----------|----------------|----------------------|--------|
Gb|----------------|----------------|-0~~------------------|--------|
Db|----------------|----------------|----------------------|--------|
Ab|----------------|----------------|----------------------|-pick---|
Eb|----------------|----------------|----------------------|-slide--|

Main Riff 3x
eb|----------------------|------------------|
Bb|o---------------------|-----------------o|
Gb|----------------------|------------------|
Db|----------------------|------------------|
Ab|o---------4---5---4~~-|-2-------2-------o|
Eb|------2-2---2---2-----|---5-4-5---5-4~~--|
pm       . .   .   .         . . .   .
P.H.         ^   ^   ^     ^       ^   ^
Pitch:       C#  D   C#    B       B   G#

Then
eb|----------------------|-2-------0--------|
Bb|----------------------|-3-------0--------|
Gb|----------------------|-2-------1--------|
Db|----------------------|-0-------2--------|
Ab|----------4---5---4~~-|---------2--------|
Eb|------2-2---2---2-----|---------0--------|
pm       . .   .   .
P.H.         ^   ^   ^
Pitch:       C#  D   C#

If you palm mute the main riff, your hand will already be in position for the correct 
pitches on the Pinch Harmonics, so don't worry about it too much.

Verse
eb|--------------------------|--------------------------|
Bb|--------5--------5--------|-3---------2--------2-----|
Gb|--------6--------4--------|-2---------2--------2-----|

N.H.                       ^    ^

eb|-----------------|------------------------  This part of the chorus
Bb|-----------------|------------------------  (left) is followed by
Gb|-2---2-----------|------------------------  an improvised lead.
Db|-2---2---------2-|-(2)-----2--------------  After that, this riff
Ab|-0---0---------2-|-(2)-----2--------------  (left) repeats.
Eb|-----------4-2-0-|-(0)-----0--------------

Then, the last part of the chorus
eb|-------------------|--------------------|-----------------|--------|

Db|-4---4-x-x---------|--------------------|-4---4-x-x-----7-|(7)---9-|

P.H.              ^                     ^
Pitch:            A                     G#

Pre Solo:
Same as intro riff (just the bass part played in power chords)

Now, my interpretation of the solo (the last few bars are improvised)

   These notes are played in four groups of six
