I think Eruption is way better and more intriging. But lets look at it this way, I play guitar and all the real players say that you can hise behind distortion but when you play on acoustic it shows what kind of player you really are. But regardless, I like Eruption

Heroes are remembered but legends never die, and Eddie you are a legend

sorry, I should elaborate rather than being a smart ass.

Not about your opinion, just that there is any comparing the two. Spanish is fuckin great, but.....Eruption changed the worldhttp://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/cool.gif

Exactly ... I know it's a matter of opinion and Spanish Fly is definitely cool, but Eruption changed the face of rock guitar forever.

As I discovered both at the same time, I can't choose a favorite. Eruptino rocks more, but Spanish Fly is just damn perfect.

I just can't do it. This whole versus thing. Can't do it.

Love them both . . .Eruption is the juggernaut though!

Yeah, gotta go with Eruption, though Spanish Fly was the logical way to go for a second instrumental. Different vibe, awesome technique. How could he top Eruption?

I'm gonna go with Spanish Fly, because it's so cool to hear that stuff on the acoustic guitar.

Yea Glenn, and try to play it. It's somewhat easier to wing Eruption than Spanish Fly. Eruption can always turn the heads at the local music store, but Spanish Fly gets them comming on over and watching you. Out.

Track 5, if I'm playing either of them in the music store, people are running for the door.http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Spanish Fly is amazing in its own right, but people, this isn't about opinions this is about fact! Eruption is a masterpiece! It changed muic! In 1:42 Eddie (with a little help from Mike and Al) signaled the end of tired old classic rock bands like Yes (Christ almighty I hate them...) and more importantly he drove a stake through the heart of disco.

Spanish Fly. I love that heavenly, angelic sounding part towards the end. I can't imagine what could have posessed him to write something like that. To CHOOSE those notes... its just alien.

Spanish Fly is a great title for this solo. When you listen to this you can almost see the fly in front of you. I imagine a Dragon Fly. Same for Eruption. You can just imagine Mt ST Helens erupt when you listen to this one. I like Eruption better but Spanish Fly is great also.
