Hey yall, this has to be one of the coolest versions of eruption i have come across (except for the original) I have been working on this for a while and my rendition sounds nothing like EVH! and more youtube versions out there that i can study? thanks!

For practicing it I'd just import it into any of the DAW programs - they pretty much all can slow down the tempo while keeping it at the original pitch - and then just practice along with it and slowly work it up to full speed.
