    Default 1982's Pretty Woman without Vocals.



    This may be from guitar hero but not sure.
    It's missing the over dubbed guitar but i think it sounds great!

    cool find Johnny! It always amazes me how many details you miss when they're buried with the vocal mix.
    First time I've really heard some of those little arpeggiated fills completely.
    I'm with ya.......Sounds great.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    It's actually quite a nice song without the vocals, nice chord progressions and fills. I think most VH songs sound better without any vocals at all, the songs are complete on their own without any vocal accompaniment.

    Sounds Amazing !
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    There's a reason Ed is the king, he can take rather bland song and rip it and make it sound amazing.

    Wow. The music sounds so fresh and alive. Great job by the band. Ed's rhythm playing is spectacular!

    Thanks for that -- sounds amazing. Absolutely love hearing tracks like this, or just vocal tracks. Gives me a completely different take on the song.
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Agreed. I've always thought it would be cool if EVH did some albums or tours with no vocalist...just him jammin on guitar or keys with a drummer and bassist...kinda like Satriani does...

    Imagine all the cool things we can't hear on their recordings b/c someone is singing over what EVH is doing...
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.
