    Default 8 years apart. Same notes. Eddie and Eruption

    I caught Eddie in two separate photos playing the exact same notes 8 years apart. The same notes. Same guitar position. Heck, he's even leaning the same way. Kind of wild how I photographed this 8 years apart.

    Notice how much higher he wears the axe today. Probably four inches difference.

    Not the same. In 2004 he probably stank like a used pair of Amy Winehouse's underwear.

    Not surprising since he spends such a long time at either 12-8-5 or 12-7-4 when he plays it live. Plus his right hand appears to be hammered on in 2004 but possibly pulled off in 2012. He was also hammered himself in 2004.

    Barry.....
    One of the most profound links posters in history.
    Lurks for a decade then drops:
    "VH is practicing "Hear About It Later" during soundcheck in Indy"
    Now 8 year apart comparative pix of Ed's solo hand position...
    And of course he's right. The match is crazy & more importantly HOW does one get that pic?
    JHC Barry how much did you spend just between those 2 shows on tickets alone?
    Or is it one of those "you got the hook up" kinda things?
    Just saying....I got about a million questions for this Barry cat.

    In 04 Ed literally played some of the solo on the wrong fret position at the 2nd STL show. I have it on DVD and was standing like 5 feet away from him during the 316 noodling part . That whole solo was stretched out in fragments of chaos, imo. Although this 2012 tour he is playing similar solo as many before, sounds much much better. Long live this EVH!

    Cool pic. But he almost always leans that way when he plays the ending bit of the tapping section of Eruption.
