    Default Ed's playing in general peaked on Fair Warning

    Hard to beat Fair Warning for the number of great rhythm tracks back to back.

    In no particular order, each of these could be on the list of best VH rhythm tracks:

    Unchained
    Mean Streets (although he'd had the song laying around for years as Voodoo Queen)
    Hear About It Later
    Sinner's Swing
    Dirty Movies
    So This Is Love
    Push Comes To Shove

    Some of Ed's best solos are on this same stretch of songs.

    Ed was pissed off and for the first time took control of the guitar tracks in the studio. And his technique and discipline were at high water marks.

    I've often thought that his rhythm playing is as incredible and as innovative as other aspects of his playing. Blows my mind. It seemed to just get better on every album too, at least through the early to mid-80's records. Too me at least there is light years between VHI and 1984 in his rhythm playing. Amazing how great VHI was and then he just kept raising the bar. Just awesome!

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Beyond the obvious standouts that people have already mentioned, I have to throw Amsterdam out there. There is some awesome rhythm playing there. It really displays his style and talent.

    "5150" .... that's the one song I'll miss VH not playing again prolly. Lots of classic stuff to make up for it I guess, but rhythmetically, just great.
