Eruption

One of my favourite guitarists! Eddie Van Halen plays the Van Halen song Eruption live.  The video, uploaded by byeson17, has been viewed more than 19 million times so far!

This is pretty much Eddie noodling on the guitar for 10 minutes, but it’s just rammed full of his signature sound and techniques. Legatto, tapping, vibrato, harmonics, trem arm control…it’s all in there.

You might even notice a few licks from other Van Halen songs in there too (a tiny bit of the Jump solo at 1:36 for example).
