    Default Impressed with this guy's tone and chops...

    Hey there,

    You guys might have seens this already but this clip is of a VH cover band and the guitar player Al Estrada is freaki great. Awesome dead on tone and chops. The singer and band on the other hand kinda suck but this guy nails early VH tone to a T.

    What do you think and what amp is he using? I thought it was a Splawn as this is how I found the clip searching Splawn clips but I dont see a Splawn on stage...

    Yeah, he's great. I believe he's using a CAE OD100.

    Uhmmm, his solo sucks? Go check out the 1977 bootleg of Eddie live or even his solo on the Largo show back in the early 80s...

    This guy nails his solo with obvious additions of cathedral, etc.

    I am sitting here amazed that anyone could think this guys playing sucks...

    I totally agree. If someone here thinks that sucks then they will need to show us some of their playing that makes it suck by comparison

    i said his solo sucked..NOT his playing, let me rephrase that, I don't recognise the Eruption solo in there. maybe he's doing a version i never heard. his playing is totaly awsome, no one can deny that for sure

    I recommend you get some boots of EVH doing live eruption back in the early days. This guy is really close....again there are some embellishments here but most of it is just spot on.

    The guitar he's using is a Suhr???? Or is that just the neck.....

    Good player - don't understand the need to be so identical though...shit he even smiles the same way....no denying the tone and Ed technique though.....

    I love some of the comments - one guy is saying 'forget Ed - go check out Michael Angelo Batio'

    Some people just don't get it....
    Ed: Actually, the last record I bought was by a band called Brand X
    Al: I make my living by viciously attacking something
    Mike: ...actually I don't drink.
    Sammy: Are these yours Eddie?
    Dave: Look at that ankle - dirty girl!

    I'm shocked that you think the solo is bad...can you do it? I'm just sayin'...
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!
