    I understand that on the studio version of Without You Eddie used a quarter to get that scratching sound. Then he had some special picks made for playing the song live. I'm not sure what this special picks are, because I've never seen them.

    IF I remember correctly, It's made of metal and it has little holes in it that cuase the metal to "stick out" and he scracthes the strings with it.

    Here is a little info. that is a big joke around my home.....on the "Without You" video....the part where they have the music break down with the Hendrixesk chords...the part where Eddie does a little tap fill they show his face up close and it looks like there is a dry snot on his pick when it is in his mouth. Check it out!! Some people here say his pick is pierced but I say it is a dry one. What do you think?! Put the video on!!!!

    I'm agree with scott5150 ! .. This is the pick that I saw in the interview ! YUNNNKKK ... thanx for the advice ,,, now I know what kinda of pick I gotta buy next time ! ... Probably I'll never found that pick , but maybe if Van Halen will came in Italy I'll get in front od the stage crowd and I'll gotta a call to Ed saying : " Hey ... Eddie ... give me your pick of Without you " ... He probably didn't anderstand 'cause my bad English ... and will say to me : " Hey man ! Speak in italian ... probably I'll underastand ya better !! " ... Yep Gulp YUNNKKKK !!! ...

    I don't know about what pick he used on "Without You", but he used a special pick for "Dirty Water Dog". I remember on Matt Rock's show, he said that the pick he used on "DWD", (a new acronym) was one that Wolfie found on the beach. I was a stone in the shape of a pick and Eddie ended up using it on the song "DWD".

    I thought I had read somewhere that on the album version, he used a silver dollar, and on tour some metal picks were made up. If anyone's interested, on van-halen.com in the music section click on Van Halen III, and if "The making of Van Halen 3" is still in there, they had (or use to have anyway) a short video of Ed demonstrating the technique he used for that part.
