    I don't know if you guys have been fooling around with the video.google beta or not, but if you type in "Van Halen", and be patient for all of the clips to pop up, this gem is nestled in there along with some other baloney amateur clips:

    Beer Drinkers/Hell Raisers Bootleg

    Very cool. That's actually how I *prefer* Van Halen: Serious about their instruments & singing, but clearly showing up to raise hell & party. Nice. And lots of moments during the solo where you can really study Ed's "brown-ness".

    The other day, I was curious about legato playing, and surely enough, video.google has some SICK clips of some foreign guy absolutely SLAYING.

    I'm sure all kinds of clips will pop up as this iteration of Google continues to mature. Let me know if you guys think of any other "word combinations" to search with.

    EDIT: ok, I just typed in "economy picking" + guitar, and sure enough, an amateur clip pops up. The guy looks like he has Palsy with his weird left hand, but he plays lightly/fast enough to coordinate with his blazing right hand, and winds up shredding. Bastard!

    OK, here's Rusty Cooley:

    And here is a clip to counter Rusty's. Hopefully it prevents any backlash against Rusty's playing:

    That clip was sick. I have heard the audio of that before, but seeing it was awesome. Dave / Mike swapping lyrics, Eddie ripping it up and Al representing. Classic cover!!

    I have been going to Google Video for a while now, but I love the new feature! Download for PC/Mac, video iPod, and PSP!

    What bootleg is that from? Dave actually seems sober and does a good job. IS that from the Diver Down tour?

    thats actually a clip from an instructional video where rusty is showing all the crazy stuff you can do with pentatonics and stuff.

    Rusty cooley has a band called outworld, and his playing is much more melodic than that video. He played me a track off of the new album in one of my lessons, sounds a little bit like nevermore.

    It's from the '83 South American tour. I can't remember the city right now, maybe Montevideo or São Paolo?

    Dave does get lyrics wrong, but I like the performance too.

    This is hilarious. If you find you can't stomach the cheese, just wait for our pal Eddie at a bit past the halfway-mark. He's almost non-existant up until that point.

    He launches into a ripping, scurrying fury, and then eases into some mellow hammerons. He's not *in* this god-awful video, obviously, but this is just hilarious stuff:

    I've rarely seen Eddie this careless....almost reckless, and never seen him this ripping. Be patient while he goes through the usual tapping and baloney......he'll eventually get to some wide stretches and violent picking. He does a streamlined version of that "picking every other string" schtick to this day, but never with this kind of reckless abandon, at least not in my video collection.

    Sorry about the quality:
