To me, after Ritchie Blackmore, it was Eddie Van Halen who really blew my mind when I first started learning rock guitar. Mean Street, Hot for Teacher, Jump, I'm the One, Panama, 5150, all that wicked stuff and of course, Eruption which is super fun to play! Moreover, he inspired me to build my own Frankenstrat as well. Long live king Edward! By the way, Guitar Rig actually did quite a fine job capturing that famous Eddie's "brown sound" here. Enjoy!
