    Default EWS solo/Hendrix Angel solo

    Anyone ever realize that the solo in Everybody Wants Some is very similar to the outro solo in Jimi Hendrix's song Angel?

    Outro solo starts a the 3:45 mark....

    Somewhat similar. Hendrix is doing the octave thing ala Wes Montgomery while Eddie uses unison bending and doesn't make a mistake like Hendrix did at 3:57.

    This is the song that made me hate Mitch Michell. The guy just can't stop overplaying no matter how mellow the song is. Good lord. Did they have cocaine in the 60s?

    I thought Eddie also played octaves in the EWS solo...at least live he seems to.

    You are correct.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    He does, in certain areas, while outlining the songs melody.

    Sounds like the first half is unison bending.

    Yup. He uses both (unison bends & octave strumming licks, among other things) in the EWS solo.

    I've always played as a single note line with vibrato dips in the first half, then after the big dive bomb is when he plays the octaves on the high E and G strings. At least that's what I thought he was doing.

    Indeed. That's how I hear it too...
    I probably didn't word my post properly. Other than how I mentioned him using those techniques (bends and octave licks) as well as 'other things' in the solo. Even though it's fairly easy, Ed has a lot going on in there, and he makes it sound seamless. As usual!

    It's weird because over time I've learned that some of his stuff is much simpler than it sounds. I always have a tendency to overthink and make stuff too complex because that's how it sounds. But a lot of cases is not, as garbaje has pointed out countless times.

    A perfect example is the breakdown before the solo in Mean Street. I have this tab book that has him doing all sorts of shit that I can't play with weird fingerings and stuff. Then I watched the "Live from the 8 spot" Sydney show and they had a pretty good close up of his hands during that part. As I watch it I realize that what he's doing is nothing like how the TAB book that I have notates it. It's much easier. So I fooled around with it for a few minutes and was able to play it pretty easily.

    Of course my favorite is the TAB that I have that has him playing the tapping part of Eruption on the G string. It's obvious from LWAN that he's not doing that. LOL.

    Fantastic post!!!
    I know exactly what you mean, and have gone through the whole process in the same way... Funny & cool that you mentioned those specific tab examples - been there done that. ��

    That's not a mistake, it's a jazz note.

    That must happen a lot. I read an interview with Angus Young once where he explained how the TAB in Guitar World got the intro to "You Shook Me" all wrong. "It's a lot simpler than that!"

    I attended a Steve Morse clinic once and that's where I first heard that advice. "If you play a bad note...play it again and it will sound right". The most astounding revelation on that one was "Holy crap....Steve Morse makes mistakes?" After that I figured if Steve makes mistakes, it was ok for me to do it.
