I wonder if there is a way to calculate how much money say? Eddie Van Halen has made per note played?

(studio recordings only)

yeah, assuming you know how much money he's off van halen recordings and the total number of notes played in every recorded van halen song and how division works.

It wouldn't be impossible, or even hard...but time consuming nonetheless.


I'd rather be more interested in the meaningful practice hours he took to develop his craft. I remember reading something in Guitar World that he spent quite a lot. I'm sure people like him and Vai have clocked well above 10,000.

The amount paid for playing a note for a concert vs. studio album would never reach a fixed average amount since the studio album release depends entirely on the sale of the album nationwide.

One album could mean 50 concerts and vise versa.

Actually 10,000 hours is considered the average time to achieve virtuosity, so yea you are spot on.


I am actually interested in a cash per note figure though.

I missed that.

I guess you'd start with how much he makes per each song (which is already tricky considering the cost for distribution). You would have to count every note in that song (which doesn't even cover how to calculate bends and whammys) and work out a figure for all those notes that adds up to that number. Do the same for all the songs on the album, then do the same for the rest of the albums, total them all up and you're left with every note he's ever played and how much he's earned for every song made. Then you would do the same and work out a figure for each note that adds up to the total earnings (I imagine it would be an exponent figure) and there you go, I guess. I wouldn't know how to solve for x though. And even then, that figure can change very easily with another album release, so my answer is still pretty much the same.

Disclaimer in case I'm wrong: I'm dumb, don't listen to me.
