    Default Why is there no vids of Ed...

    playing his guitar horizontally (like a keyboard) back on the "1984" tour? He had that contraption that he patented to hold his guitar in that position while he played using all 10 finger, keyboard style, on the fret board.

    I have searched all over YouTube and to my surprise, there is not a single one.

    ???

    Bizarre.

    Anyone know if there is one on YT (or anywhere else)?? I would LOVE to see it! Thanks for any help. Just really shocked that couldn't find one. I don't think have ever seen him do this except when I was at the 1984 concert and, of course, in pictures.

    I would assume that it was just an idea,and he wanted it patented just in case. I highly doubt he ever even played that way. He just didn't want someone else to take the credit for the "design". Looking back,I don't think he would ever have to worry about someone using or stealing the idea,except for maybe someone like Jeff Healey,and even that would seem far fetched.

    If you go to www.guitars101.com, there's a pic of EVH playing the guitar like that on the top of the screen. I'm pretty sure I've seen other pics of it around someplace. I'd think there'd have to be a video someplace!

    I remember seeing pictures of some sort of folding contraption on the back of his guitar. It looked like it was homemade out of wood and hinges. He could lift the guitar horizontal and the thing would unfold into place against his chest.

    Yeah,I remember seeing the patent pic and stuff. I would think that if he ever DID happen to use it,it would've been shown or talked about here. Hell,we seem to find out just about everything at this place.

    He's played horizontally,yes,but not with that thing as far as I know.

    Glad to help. Been lurking on this board for a long time, and today was the nudge to register. The 1984 tour, in my opinion, is VH at the peak of their power, also the best Eddie solo spots.

    Nah, Ed lost interest.
