    Default "Intruder" Guitar Sounds?

    Anyone got a handle on how Ed made some of those controlled "crunches" on Intruder? There's a sh*tload of sounds in that intro that he controlled so well, and reproduced them fairly accurately on live boots that I've seen.

    The cranking sound is Ed spinning a dry Floyd trem arm round and round (you can see him working this magic on the US Fest DVD) but from there, he stands in the dark and turns his back to the camera so we can't see how he gets those crunches and various other sounds.

    Any of you guys mess around with this intro and achive those sounds?

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Yup, a beer can...make sure you've emptied it first.

    Jeff of jfrocks.coms demos it with a beer can under EVH noises and tricks. He's got it down pretty good. Awsome site.
