Just the tapping part. But I don't really care about that kind of music.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Can't everyone?

I think once you've been playing for at least 2 years, it becomes a stairway, to know how to at least tap eruption.

I don't get why everyone gets so wet over Eruption. It was only ever a warm-up, and not the best song in the world.

OP is at that stage where he thinks your only a good guitarist if you can play Eruption.

Well, I don't think of it as the bast or anything close. It's just a cool two minutes of fast guitar playing. And the end tapping sounds cool. It's just a fun song to impress people with, that really isn't that hard to learn.

It's not like Buckethead's jordan, but it's still good guitar playing.
#20
Most people can only play the tapping part...very few people can play this song accurately at all...most of the time its just good enough for people to recognize it.

Actually, Eruption doesn't have a bass part, Van Halens bassist is Wolfgang Van Halen.
The fact that Eruption has no bass was the joke.
Well done.

I've never heard the song, nor listen to Van Halen. I was just being a douche.

I never bothered to learn the whole thing.

I learned the first part, but I still have a little trouble with the "457547" picking part.

I could play it after a few minutes of learning. I was only playing 2 weeks at the time.


That's not true. I can play most of it though
#39
I haven't bothered to learn the whole thing but I can play parts. And some parts I don't know I can play something similar.

Only thing I did with eruption was that I wrote it in as an intro in my computer game.
