    Default My favorite Eddie Van Halen guitar lick. Plus bonus!

    My favorite Eddie Van Halen guitar lick ever since i was 14 years old has always been the little tap slide thing he did on the solo to "Mine all Mine" off OU812.

    I first saw Eddie do it on "One way to rock" on the "Live without a net" home video.



    Several years ago i thought i saw a 1983 HSAS live video where Neal Schon did the same lick or something?
    Maybe Eddie stole the lick from him?
    I dunno?
    Anyone else ever notice this?

    Anyway this video shows how to play that neat lil lick, also keep watching the video for a chat i did with Mike Anthony yesterday.

    Doesn't he use a lick like that on House of pain? I can't listen to the song here at work, but I seem to remember that during the first 30-50 seconds of the song there is a lick very similar to this.

    Yeah he does a little hammer on tapping thing that's similar to this.
    Kinda without the slide.

    Nice lesson as always.

    Anxious to see that Chickenfoot concert online. The one they did from Cabo was great musically and it never lagged like so many live videos do.

    Hopefully they'll come play Florida on this tour.

    Awesome vid Johnny. And chatting with MA was sweet too.
    yeah I love that little slide/pulloff trick too Johnny. Your right thats the exact one he does going into the solo to MAM.

    matter a fact if you dont mind, tonight I will record the same thing he did on LWAN One Way To Rock too and tag it on to this post. Its the same thing except he frets the 4th fret and slides down from 7th to 5th and then does a little pulloff up higher on the neck. Awesome post dude.

    when I get out of work tonight I will see if I can rip that vid. Also have to do that one you and I were talking about from Dream is over.

    good job bro,

    Rob

    Default One Way To Rock "tag on to Johnny's lick"

    Hey guys,

    sorry about the crappy video and far away shot but basically this is the same thing as Johhny was talking about that Ed does in One Way To Rock. My last post was incorrect BTW. In OWTR Ed hit and bent up the G string at the 4th fret and then slided down from the 9th to the 7th.

    awesome post Johnny...... this is a great little lick.

    Rob

    Both great vids !
    "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.
