Hello Everyone,

I am trying to work on Eruption by Van Halen (what other Eruption is there???)

I know the tapping portions of the song

I have the right tone

I have the tremelo picking part down

I was wondering how you are supposed to do the 8p5p0 and the 4h5h7p5p4 parts without tapping (the way I do them)???

Please Help!

Thanks but I was wondering how it is done I mean technically such as what fingers you use because I usually use my pinky and index fingers for that part but it is really hard!

I thought the title said "Erection Help" 'cause I had my mouse over the "up" in "Eruption"

I was disappointed by the lack of hilarity that ensued

Pick the 8 with pinky, pull off to 5 with index, index pulls off to open, then hit the 5 on the E and repeat.
For the 4h5h7p5p4, pick 4 with index, hammer on 5 with middle, hammer on 7 with pinky, pull off to middle with pinky, pull off to index with middle. Remember, one pick stroke.

From 0:06 to 0:10, I'm pretty sure Eddie's sweeping down two strings, up one. I'm not positive, my guitar teacher told me it was played that way.
