    Default I'm doing a kind of recital this Sunday, and I'm unsure what to play, I need help

    I'd like to combine a bunch of Eddie riffs and solo pieces to make a kind of Eddie 'tribute' for my piece. My instructor asked me to participate and I thought I would enjoy it. I've been playing for over a year and a half and know many VH songs fairly well.
    In no order, here things that would grab attention and 'wow' the audience/I would enjoy to play

    Cathedral in the style of the Live:RHRN record/90's tours
    Unchained riff/solo/breakdown
    Women in Love tapped intro
    Half of 316 studio
    Mean Street intro and opening riffs
    part of Spanish Fly intro tapping and descending tapping
    part of Eruption (tapping) (I don't know this, I'll have to learn it)

    What else is really iconic that i can include?

    Thats a good selection already- why dont you combine them and come up with a solo similar to Ed? You know- a bit of everything that flows from piece to piece. You could add somthing of your own in the middle to showcase your ability too?

    So far I've experimented a bit, and have some variations I think I've created on my own, on a lot of these riffs.
    In order from beginning
    316
    Spanish Fly intro tapping and descending
    Mean Street slap tap
    Romeo Delight tapping variations back into Mean Street intro
    Unchained main riff and solo into breakdown
    Turn the delay on and transition into Women in Love delay intro
    Cathedral
    Delay off, play part Opening of Eruption, go into the last tapping riff
    Finish with tapped harmonics ala 316 ending.

    Just noticed as I finished typing this it looks strikingly familiar to the solo off of L:RHRN.
    Thoughts?

    Seeing is believing ... Good luck with it

    How 'bout adding the Panama breakdown
    "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.

    I'll add both of these in. The Panama breakdown would make a nice transition into ATBL.
