There’s no denying that Eddie Van Halen is one of the greatest guitarists of all time. He literally changed the game by introducing, and popularizing the tapping technique. His solo on “Eruption” has been considered as one of the greatest solos of all time, and has outlasted generations!
Eddie has always been great at what he does, because he was so innovative with his instrument. The effects he used back in the day were next level, and he was always introducing new ways to play the guitar. We’ve dug up some rare footage of Eddie back stage messing around with his guitar! While messing around, Eddie turns to the camera and makes the sound of an elephant and a horse on his guitar! It’s absolutley crazy! If you close your eyes, you could swear that it was an actual elephant or horse you were hearing!
Fun Fact: Eddie Van Halen insists that there is a mistake in “Eruption” near the beginning. “Whenever I hear it, I always think, Man, I could’ve played it better,” he said. This is a great argument against perfectionism.
