i just listened to it, it sounds pretty nice. but is this solo hard to play to u guys? just asking in general. ty
LOL
#2
Kinda. Eddie just repeats alot of the same fingerings throughout the song, so if you get those down and up to speed you'll be able to play it prety well. It's not an easy song, but there's certainly a lot of stuff out there that's harder to play.

i cabt play it cause the acurate-sounding tab is to complicated for me and i sont have the time to stare at the tab for long enough to figure it out.so if ne1 can help you can you try to help me?

Dear Stoner Stone,
I have found in reading this post that you are lacking the intelligence of a normal person.
you need serious help, possibly involving a screwdriver, and a large piece of wood.
please, be deceased now.
thank you

it's pretty fast picking, and tapping. I can't do the tapping part cuz i haven't practiced. the picking is pretty fast for me too... yikes.

just play it roughly. that's what eddie did anyway.

the tapping part is pretty easy once you get it, but is awesome to show off with

For the tapping you just have to keep working on it. But for the picking, try anchoring one of your picking hand fingers on the body of the guitar so your hand's more balanced and controlled.

STFU ABOUT THAT SONG IT IS SOOOOOOOO OVER-RATED!!!!!!!!!!!!and why dont u look up the song to see if it is hard..that would be a smart idea
#11
Ah, it's not as hard as it sounds. I got it okay, but when it i performed it i choked at most things but the tapping. The tapping is what wows people though, and for me, that was the easiest part to learn. Just watch videos of him playing, and you'll get basic tapping down in no time.

thanks for the tip. but i'm not too interested in playing that song. i like "You Really Got Me" from Van Halen... but i don't like Eruption. no David Lee Roth!!! Eruption gets boring after 100 times I've heard the song... (yes, i heard it like 25 times in one night cuz it was so cool that first night.)

and i know "You Really Got Me" is a Kinks cover.

I can't get it down right, but its been a good while since I attempted it. Its a bit over played anyhow, I'd rather try and nail Get Out Of My Yard - Paul Gilbert. Much much cooler tapping part. Of course, its much much harder and I can't quite get it.

One nice thing is however that its I think the only Van Halen tune in standard tuning from that album.
#18
I have a tough time getting the tapping up to the correct speed, but the rest of it is okay, definitetly not easy, but it's not like OMFG it's so HARd!
