    Default Ice Cream Man Solo Cover

    Been meaning to learn this one for ages, finally got around to it. Same 5150iii setup as usual, Pariah pup in a Locke body with a Musikraft neck.

    That sounded great! Really well done, with lots of fire and swing. It's a kickin' solo, and you blew right through it. The Frankie replica also looks better than most.

    You also do the intro wide stretch licks the way I first learned them, using 4 notes (and the middle finger) on the high E string etc. Sorry, Garbeaj! Haha.

    I later got into the 3 note per string pattern that some posted, where you hit the 19th fret on the B as opposed to the14th fret on the E etc.

    You sounded phenomenal on this! Probably my favorite of yours, right behind the Beat It solo.

    Thanks, dude. I just gave that opening lick a shot in the 3-note per string pattern (similar to the stretch in Beat It) - no can do. Getting back to the E after the F# is damn near impossible for me.

    He plays it with the 14th on the high E - as per the Hal Leonard book - and I do the same.

    I'm going to go delete mine now...

    That was cool. I liked the little ad-libbing you had going with the slides and bends around :36.

    Well done!
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Great job, Jedi!
    I tried that stretch once....it went badly.

    One of these days I'll give it another shot.

    Effortless. Well done Jedi. You play that with the ease I play the "I Wanna Be Sedated" guitar solo.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Thanks, guys!

    I feel like it'd been forever since I learned an EVH solo, so learning and playing this felt real good. Need to pick a few more to tackle next.
