Solo timing: 3:26-4:01
Desire is from the No More Tears album from Ozzy Osbourne. I wish this solo was longer as Zakk Wylde makes it seems so effortless and leaving you wanting more. 44 seconds of pure shredding. It starts with taking you through an uplifting melody along the strings of the axe, taking you back and forth between high and lows of the strings, midway you feel more positive about what’s about to happen then he hits the “high” right at 3:33. Here I’m visualizing Zakk saying, “Not done yet, gotta finish strong and make every last note count.” The last 20 seconds he pulls you in every direction possible and you’re left at the end wondering what just happened.
