    You know during Live Without A Net when Eddie starts into the Mean Street intro, then changes it up a little and does this 'thing'. I don't know what you'd call it but he kind of skips around on the tapping/slapping thing and then finishes it up with a little slide. Has anyone figured out exactly what it is he's doing. That thing is way cool and I gotta learn how to play that thing. Anyone know how to do it?

    He's doing exactly what it looks and sounds like he's doing. Slapping and tapping then fretting a couple notes with his right hand and sliding up the neck and back. Watch the tape and you'll see basically how he does it.

    he also did it on the dd tour like at the us fest....

    the "thing" he does is he uses 2 fingers and slides up

    That's my favorite part of his solo. Right after he does eruption and cathedral. Wow What inovative stuff ...
