    A band that will always be copied but never duplicated.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    YEAH MAN! Isn't that AWESOME! I play guitar/keyboards & drums and have a pretty nice home recording studio and I recently found a cool plug in for Logic 8 that does a GREAT job at separating the guitar so all you really hear is Eddies track on most of their studio recordings. Makes it a LOT easier to learn his licks. I even found an easy way to slow down the audio 50% to make it even easier (without changing the pitch!)

    I love these vids!

    These were posted up here a couple months back, but I never get tired of seeing them.

    Ed's tone on Panama is fuckin sick.

    I'm used to it now, but I remember the first time I heard Ed's isolated guitar track, which pretty much confirmed for me how LITTLE gain he was using, even by mid-80's standards.

    He articulates the sh*t out of his phrases with his hands.....BOTH hands. Awesome stuff on the 1st clip (Panama).

    Majestic, it is so nice when I hear someone comment on just how AWESOME Ed's rhythm playing is! You always hear people talking about his leads, tapping, etc but IMO, Ed is one the BEST rhythm players EVER!

    I always listen in amazement on just how cool he phrases. Incredible. I really love his rhythm on Dance the night away and especially Beautiful Girls. The way he muffles, chops, and all the cool little shit he throws in.

    Articulates. Thats what you said and it fits perfect! And yes, BOTH HANDS! Ed is king! You are now on my list of cool people Majestic LOL!

    Amen to that. Anyone can tap and hammer-on with practice. Hell, I'm a hopelessly mediocre player and don't know my scales, but I can improvise while hammering-on. It's not that hard. But to play those rhythm sections and get Ed's feel is virtually impossible. Think of the outtro to Drop Dead Legs. It's a relatively simple riff. But who else sounds like that? No one.

    seconding this for agreement. ed is the full deal, he has everything in spades ... or used to and the rhythm i would say is probably the most important part.

    it's the 'dancability' of the songs (as roth terms it) that really makes them stick out.

    take any other band out there during the 80s, while they had bits and pieces of what ed and vh had, they never had that rhythm thing happening as heavily and consistently. it was simply never something you could tap your foot to.

    i'm not foot tapping is a good measure of the longetivity of a tune but having ed as rhythmic as all i think set them on a whole other level compared to the rest of the bands.
