    The intro to ATBL sounds VERY similar to some of Ed's rhythm guitar work in TDIO. I was just wondering if anyone has ever noticed that before. I've brought this up before on more than one occasion, but no one has ever noticed the similarities. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    oh shit, i thought you wanted us to pick the better one... well, that one's easy. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    i never noticed it, but now that you mention it, i see it.
    the dream is over is not really a popular song, but i think ed's rhythm work in that song is pretty awesome. i don't like to listen to many songs off FUCK, but that one gets played for sure. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    i think that ATBL is simply classic van halen. nuff said. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I never really thought about a similarity between these two songs but I can hear it now. Both are awesome songs.

    In both songs, Eddie uses a muted string technique (the intro to ATBL, and the verse in TDIO). It is a cool technique, not too hard to learn, but very cool just the same [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Yeah Rockgtr, Ed has some of his best tone in those 2 songs...even if the whole FUCK album sucked in production. I guess Ed uses a lot of the same notes in playing songs, kinda like Jump and Top of the World. Wonder what other songs he's done that to. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
