    Goo, I think you're prematurely closing my posts because you're confusing me with a certain liberal. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img] Oh yeah, just so you don't close this one because of VH content... VH Rules, but Eddie hasn't written a solo which was perfectly suited for a song since Fair Warning! Discuss amongst yourselves. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Panama and Hot For Teacher solos rock. So does Feelin'.

    I agree that he's wearing thin on the same old tired solo (or at least, solo concepts), but every now and then something good creeps out, like the Amsterdam Solo.

    I don't know dude. Seems like even on 1984 he started whiping out solos with a random flurry of notes just for the sake of the solo, not the song. I like the ones like "So this is Love?" and "The cradle will rock" much better. They are so much a part of the song that the song would be much less without them. Can't make that statement for much from 1984 on. Along those lines, Elliot Easton also rocks. Even if you don't like the Cars.

    I always liked the solo on "Dreams".

    Hm. If I were to pick a set of Ed solos from each album that seemed to be almighty Ed, in terms of I'd have a hard time seeing something other than a variation of what he plays (other than just BS that sounded good), I'd say...

    You Really Got Me
    I'm the One
    Ice Cream Man
    Somebody Get Me a Doctor
    Romeo Delight
    Hear About It Later
    So This Is Love?
    Hang 'Em High
    Panama
    Hot For Teacher
    5150 (I'm talkin' LWAN)
    Judgement Day
    Right Now
    Top of the World
    Amsterdam
    Feelin'

    I haven't heard him play the 2 with Dave off of Best Of, and I wish he'd play something else for Human's Being, and they didn't play enough III for me to get an opinion.

    I also left out the Ed guitar solo tracks because I'm talking in the context of a song. But for me, the above mentioned are quintessential Ed.

    Feel Your Love Tonight is one of my all time favs for guitar solos. Fits the song perfectly, Starts easy, then kicks you in the teeth.

    The only problem is the "bubble-gum" theme to that song turns my stomach. I does likes the shred though! Especially when it starts slow and melodic, then peaks with fury! (Kinda like fine lovin', huh?)

    Mr. Ashcroft, please edit the title of this thread to something about the VH topic in discussion. Then I'll move it to the Songs and Albums forum.

    Domestic abuse is "bubble gum"?!?! Isn't that song about being fake with love when you ignore and abuse? Kind of anti bubble gum, if you ask me.

    Well, I gotta go deal with my mechanic, so I'm gonna resolve this now. If you want to start a thread to Goo, do so in the Feedback forum. If you want to start a thread about Van Halen songs and/or albums, do so in the Songs/Albums thread. Main doesn't need to be a dumping ground for everything. Sound good?

    Closing this.
