everytime i play it in local shops ppl are like damn dude thats badass. But ive know it for a while, prolly the 5th song i learnt. Is it like hard or something? id rank it as a 3 on difficulty out of 10. what do yall think?
#4
I wouldn't call it a 3/10. But its not a 10/10. Its easy to play the song so that its noticable, but to play it accurate and correct is more difficult.

If you just play the tapping it is easy. If you actually learn it all it can probably be a little bit more difficult, but I don't like EVH and never had the urge to learn it.

yeah i know the whole song. it was pretty simple. i play it accurate. i even play his little mistake part at the end lol. i didnt kno it was that big of a deal lol.

Funny, I looked on my Fender calender, it's EVH's birthday today, happy birthday EVH!


But yeah you should go pro.

i have a feeling the TS was hoping to see twenty posts all saying "wow! you find it easy? you're the AWESOMEST."

anyone can learn one piece of music by rote, even if it's really fast or "hard." if you can explain to me the significance of every chord progression that EVH cycles through in the tune, i'll be a little more impressed.

If it were on Guitar Hero, it might be slightly difficult.


it's not a good thing that the first place you go in your head is "hmm, that'd be hard on guitar hero "

Hmm. "Eruption." Playing it a music store. Hmm. I'm gonna do it.


LOL to this... i forgot he mentioned he plays it in shops... many places will kick you out or at least tell you to play something else. the big no-no's in guitar shops are: Stairway to Heaven, Enter Sandman or Master of Puppets, Eruption, Smells Like Teen Spirit, and anything by GN'R.
#21
well tbh i tend to play it behind my head with my toes to make it more challenging, kind of impresses people when i do that. not bragging or anything.. but i am amazing.
#22
Well no-one will be able to play it the way Eddie does. I could do the tapping bit. Although I have forgotten the notes now mind you.

Not really. EVH is more glamor than rock. Its just really flashy hammer-ons and pull-offs like Hot For Teacher.

It's not hard compared to other stuff.

The reason it gets so much noteriaty is that when it came out people didn't really play that way. It was pioneering in its sound and was unusual for a guitar solo like that to be an actual track on a CD.

Eruption isn't that technical, but it is a good song to work on when you are learning to shred.

Unfortunately, that is the most complicated song I can play.
