    OK so I was wondering if any of you knew who is playing the violin, or cello...not sure which, on this song. Is this Ed or what? I could not find anything in the liner notes.

    Ya know? I don't recall but if I did it was the violin and who knows maybe MA's wife's sister or something. That question just rung a bell inside because Pearl Jam did the same for their new record. All in all it was probobly Al n' shit. You know him he can play anything~

    Hey track thanks for the save yet again. As I was sifting through the 3 album lately cuz of the recent debates about it here, I figured it would be a good little tidbit of knowledge...it looks as though I have stumped the masses

    Eye....ya I was always wondering if this was Ed or what...kinda cool if it was just to shed a little better light on that tune....but it was probably just an overdub or some bullshit like that.

    Not trying to leave you hanging Rat Salad, just don't have a clue.

    Frankly, I haven't listened to that song in awhile, and I'm not even sure what part of the song you're referring to that has that instrument.

    I'll check it out tomorrow.

    To be honest with you... I think the violins and the cellos you are hearing are done by a synth. You know that if the strings were played by Ed he would have told reporters during interviews and what not.

    Ya Heat you are probably right, which sucks cuz he should have done it. I fuckin hate when bands manufacture music ya know...play the shit yourself or leave it off

    Glenn...I am pretty sure the cellos and violins come on around 315 of the song.

    First off, extra points for Rat Salad. That's the first time I've ever put on Van Halen III for the sole purpose of listening to How Many Say I.

    Musically, it's so cool, and even the singing I find bearable. But the lyrics are terrible.

    I agree that it would have been cool for EVH to play the cello and violin. He's just the kind of guy (like Brian Jones was said to be) who could pick up and master an instrument in a short period of time.

    Well Gentleman, I have an answer for us....this is not Eddie, but sampled strings according to Brad.
