    Default Mistake on Eruption

    I remember Eddie saying in an interview that he made he mistake somewhere on Eruption. Where exactly was it that he made a mistake? Its certainly not glaringly obvious.

    I've always wondered that myself. He says when he goes real high up on the neck of the guitar. So I'm thinkin after the second drum interlude when he really goes crazy.

    Eddie's mistakes sound better than most guys best takes. You know the harmonics from Where Have All The Good Times Gone. He blew most of them and they still sound really cool. Wish I could make mistakes like him...

    It is in the descending tapping part at the very end. He repeats his first descending tap lick 2 times because he messed up his approach. Of course only he knew it at the time because he wrote it. It obviously sounds normal to us. Eddie said in an interview that Ted Templeman was happy with the "take" and said it was great and Eddie was like "what do you mean, I messed that part up?" ... anyway, it wound up being committed to tape and now we know it the way that it is.

    Feel Your Love Tonight, 3:17 into the song. Very, very slight, hardly noticeable. The vibe was definitely more important.

    I remember he said 'there's a mistake on the 'top-end' of eruption. i think he refers to the part at the end of the tremolo picking section. it sounds kinda off if you compare it to other better (live) performances of eruption. the best version of eruption that you can find on kazaa defenitely burns. technically more outstanding compared to the studio version and it burns longer.
    if it sounds good, it is good- EVH

    I am not sure if its Eddie or Mike but there is a mistake on Everybody Wants Some with the background vocals.

    Happens around 4:15 on that. Somebody says Need instead of Want.

    I thought that was supposed to be in there...for some reason I thought he said gimme, as in give me, since the song is everybody wants some.

    He used to do that fast climb up the b and e strings that was later used in spanish fly. He does it in all the early(and later) bootlegs. I think he originally wanted that in eruption.
