    Default Tapping in 1965

    Check this cat out



    Sorry, all these years I still don't know how to put a video in a post.

    We all know Eddie didn't invent tapping but we all know what he's done with the technique and for the technique.

    Out of all the two-handed techniques I've seen besides Eddie's, I like this guy's the best. He's very musical with it, just like Eddie is. If you watch the whole thing he does a bunch of different things. Pretty cool.

    I saw that just recently- he's good!
    When I found it I remember thinking that the guy who put it up was (judging from the title) wanting to prove that Ed didn't invent it.
    From memory, didn't Ed come up with it after watching Jimmy Page?
    You're right- everyone knows Ed didn't invent it but he certainly capitolised it and used it in a contempory and inovative way- put it this way- I couldn't sit through two hours of watching the you tube guy play, but I could watch Ed happily for four!

    I thought it was Ace Frehley, not Jimmy Page. Ace was one of the flashier players going before EVH showed up and had turbo jets installed on the guitar king throne he flew in on.

    If Eddie did THAT I wouldn't have become a VH fan.


    Thank god he took it in an entirely different direction (and plugging in with the volume at 10 didn't hurt either )

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    I think he said at one point that if someone picked up the guitar because of Ace- '.....I mean-come on, really?'
    Pretty sure he said it was page- either way, he never took credit for inventing it- pretty cool considering where he took it-
