Well, I think Eruption is one of those solos that should be played note for note (or at least parts of it). It won't sound like Eruption if you don't play certain parts in it (for example the iconic...

^ Yeah. Many times the chord symbols are the same for every tuning. When I'm in a standard like dropped tuning (for example C standard), I still call my 0 2 2 1 0 0 chord E major.

Don't you have a bassist? It sounds really empty because of that (and you may also want to double your guitars to make it sound bigger). And the drums sound pretty fake (especially those very fast...

Think C dorian as a variation of C minor scale. If you look at them, you may see that C dorian is only one note different from C minor.

C minor: C D Eb F G Ab Bb
C dorian: C D Eb F G A Bb

You could also look at it as an unresolved ii-V.

Also, Abm7 is really close to Cb major (Abm7 = Cb major + Ab in bass) so it may sound a bit like Cb-Db vamp. I don't even know if the organ is...

About that song you posted - it sounds like a dorian vamp. So to me sounds like the F is the major 6th and Ab is the tonic.

Just listen to the chords the organ plays - sounds like i-IV (Abm7-Db7).

The thing is, if you get a loud enough amp now, you don't need to buy many amps for different purposes. The wattage doesn't really matter. A 100 watt amp can always be turned down but a 20...

D7 - G - B7 - E7 - Am was what I was thinking of.

For first ending also try C - Dm7 - G6 - E7 - Am. It resolves stronger to Am.


Make sure the other notes also fit those chords. The A over F#7...

I don't know. Where have you seen this tuning being used?

Those notes form a F#m9 chord so you could call it the "F#m9 tuning".

Tone isn't everything. If your guitar just doesn't feel good to play, it doesn't matter how good or bad it sounds.
