I think the song sucks. But maybe thats just because I went and checked it out after hearing how awesome it was here. To me it was a total letdown.

eruption annoys me because my friend plays it and impresses everyone and I could easily play it but i choose not to because I think it's a wank fest and incredibly simple and boring compared to the other vast majority of sounds you can create with the guitar.


that and people like it cause they know it.

Basically, before you listen to it, you have to realize that Eruption was originally Van Halen's warm up until a friend told him he should record it. Once that is in the debate, it becomes very one sided. If a guitarist creates things like that as a warm up you have to give him some credit (and respect the song).

Overrated? It was one of the first GOOD tapping showcases and that song itself influenced almost everyone of the 80s shredders that we all love (Vai, Gilbert, Satriani, Bettencourt, etc).

Sure, it wasn't his best solo BY FAR. Hell, it wasn't even the first tapping solo, or the best tapping solo either. But to call it overrated is absurd! Without Eruption, I guarantee that you wouldn't know the names of Paul Gilbert (He has said that the reason he plays the way he does is because of trying to play eruption over and over), Nuno Bettencourt (listen to Mutha), Vai (He took the whole "phaser tapping" sound to a whole new level, but was none the less influenced it). The list goes on and on...Steven Lynch, George Lynch, Reb Beach...they were all inspired to play the way they do because of that song. THAT is undeniable.

Not really. As far as guitar wankage songs, I prefer Eugene's Trick Bag.

I didn't know Paganini classified as "wankage..."



Anyway, I don't think Eruption is the BEST solo ever, but I still like it.

A short song, showcasing the guitarist talent at a variety of skills...I didn't say it was random fretboard wankage...just wankage haha.

I fail to see how Eruption = God. Eruption actually sucks pretty hard. Don't make a thread like this if you aren't prepared to take the bashing.

I can't say I'm a fan. First time I heard I thought it was just a wank fest, made entirely just to show off what he was capable of.
#28
I first heard it before I started playing guitar and I was like

Z0MG THAT IS DA AMAZINGNESSSSSS


Than eventually I realized that if I applied myself I could play at least some of that. Now its just like...meh. Ok.

Eruption is pure **** IMO its not nice sounding its not something you could listen to on your mp3 unless you like listening to ****ty wankage with a second of relatively nice tapping in it. its a warmup and should never have been released as a standalone song because as that its fails big time.

Aside from inspirational value, there's nothing really amazing about it. But, I like it. Don't expect me to orgasm over it, though.

Does this mean the TS cums in his pants when he hears Eruption?
That's kind of creepy.
