    Default My Van Halen Covers

    Here are a couple of my covers of some Van Halen tunes, I know the levels aren't great and the playing isn't the best but I guess it's alright.....


    Romeo Delight:



    Now I missed that little tap lick right before the chorus and my solo is really off, forgot what key I was in and my improv did not go over so well, so the solo is rough.

    Somebody Get Me A Doctor:



    Not too bad but I know I could play it better, anyways feedback would be great tho!

    She's The Woman:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICH5Bx6QbLM&feature=relmfu

    It's pretty rough but I learned it by ear and wanted to use my Evh wah on one cover! I am gunna keep working on it tho

    Anyways just thought I would share now that I can finally post!

    I just assumed it was something you just had to work on until you got it.

    Get a hammer-on pull-off thing going in the right place and lightly touch the strings with your palm as you move it down the neck? Is that close?

    Yeah pretty much lay your picking hand vertical over the strings just barely and either ascend or descend, you can do this in a bunch of different places but it works best when you hammer on a fret a part so 2-4 5-7 and I either go 2-4-0 2-4-0 or 2-4 2-4 but on all frets I like to add the open not for an added harmonic

    Rock on man!! Hey if you are a guitarist and you are passionate about the instrument you really gotta check out the podcast 6 string bliss and their proboard forum. Everyone on there is positive and there is no negativity on the board which makes it great!
