    Default A flawless cover of Amsterdam - Can't play it better than this

    Sorry if this is old news around here but I hadn't seen it yet. This guy is the smoothest mother I've ever seen when it comes to covering EVH. Get a load of the perfection of this song......and the tone can't possibly be more accurate of the Balance era.

    What a tremendous song on the guitar this is....Ed had his shit together during Balance, that's for sure.

    That is pretty fuckin awesome. You realize just how good Eddie is when you see it played up close like that, and this guy just nailed it, tone and everything.

    This guy plays great. On one of his youtube posts, he said that he is using some effects proccessor and thats it. I think he is also using a wolfgang special, which people always tend to cast off as junk.

    Hats off to that dude! He did a great job.

    This is an example of how great a rhythm player Ed was/is. This tune is so busy guitar-wise yet it's not overkill or a wankfest. Fuck I miss eddie's playing.

    One thing I did notice is he's not playing it in Drop D, and I know Ed does.

    Brett, I don't think you're drunk like numb nuts above, but I disagree with you. He is playing it in drop D IMO.

    Like Ed, I think Sam's Lyrics aren't worthy of this piec of music! What a great song!

    I was thinking the exact same thing. When you get a chance to watch this song being played up close you can see just how extremely well-constructed this song is. I could live 3 lifetimes and not come up with something so busy, yet so smooth. Hats off to this guy for making it look so easy.

    After I posted that I realized he had to be in Drop D for where he does that intro. Never mind.

    If you look to see where the pickup selector switch is, you'll see it's definitely not a Wolf Special...

    That was an AWESOME performance. That song is certainly not very easy but he did a great job. Eddie IMO is one of the greatest songwriters and rhythm players.
