    Working on Beat It Solo, Just got a new EVH Guitar Instruction Video

    I'm working on the Beat It solo and ran across this guy, lawnbowler1972, think he's got the best solo I've seen so far.

    EVH BEAT IT


    Van Halen 5150 EVH


    PHRASE BY PHRASE CLASSIC VAN HALEN WITH MARK JOHN STERNAL
    I just bought this DVD for $24.95, (free shipping too) off of ebay and think this is the best EVH guitar instruction video I've seen, quality and instruction wise.

    He even plays a Fender Wolfgang supplied by EVH/Fender. I'm surprised they would provide him a Wolfgang to play when he's making $$$ off of VH.

    PS Sunday is my B-day so we're going to San Antonio to see CHICKENFOOT. I'm excited to see Satriani because I've never seen him before. I hope to hear him play some VH!!!

    That's not even close to being note-for-note, but it sounds like that's not what you're aiming for. He stays in key, and hits the "spirit" of the solo, though.

    This is where I learned the notes to the solo, many years ago. I need to revisit it, I'm surprised and glad it's still up:

    That's cool, good tab and MP3s.

    I think if I try and play with the slowed down MP3 version will help much.

    Thanks for the info.

    Cool, that's the dude from Lick Library. I saw only one of those clips on Youtube. I couldn't find any more clips. So I wanted to buy that DVD, but could only find it on their web site in PAL format, if I remember correctly.

    I installed this add on to my Firefox browser, I think it's Ant.com, and you can download any video from a web site.

    For example to save these, I just click the download button and it downloads them in Quicktime format. It's really cool to save any video on the web.

    Oh, I didn't know you could do that with Real Player. Cool.

    John Denner plays a mean Beat it solo too.

    I've always thought this guy does a great Beat It solo.



    Check out his other vids, because he does a couple of versions of it.
    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
