    What lick of edward's do you most like to play or sounds the coolest when you play it? The one I like is kinda obscure but pops up a lot in his live solo and in various songs in different forms. On the live Hear about it later video (oakland show) it comes right after "pay my bills yeah" It starts on the high E 12th fret while tremolo picking like hell and goes to 14 15 17 15 14 15 17 19 bend up to C? at the end. Although this lick is in E (minor)? it works over a lot of keys. its a cool lick to throw in when you are soling and need a big finish.
    Hey man, that suit is you woooo hoo hooooo!<p>Takes me at least halfway to the label b'fore I can even make it through the night

    theres honestly too many to count but i gotta go with the part in F#in the HFT solo where Ed bends the 2nd fret on the G string doing that crazy blues lick and does the pulloffs on the B string. that stuff is hot. easy to play too which is cool

    Bangin' out the opening chords to "Unchained"..........even without a flagner it still rules.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    For me, it's the last half of Eruption. I know that this is a popular piece, but it's what got me hooked on Van Halen. I still remember the first time I heard it. I was 16 and my jaw hit the floor. I wanted to learn to play guitar just to learn that song.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    I've always loved playing the solo to "Somebody Get Me a Doctor", that's a fun one for me. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    And beyond the horizon.... a sound was heard.

    The staccatto riff in the "Out Of Love" solo.

    I love his lick in "hear about it later" in the solo where he slides up the high E to the 8th fret then down the B all the way and then hits the A artificial harmonic on the G. I also love the opening lick to the ice cream man solo.
