    Default "I'm The One" Cover - In Honor of the 41st Anniversary!

    I've covered this one a few times, it's the #1 VH tune that alludes me. The swing and swagger to Ed's playing here is immeasurable. I've never been able to get a take I'm fully satisfied with, and as a result many licks need fine tuning. But, I wanted to put out something for VH's 41st anniversary, so here we are!

    Playing the usual rig. Locke, Musikraft, Pariah, MXR, and EVH Gear throughout. 🙂

    Insane and awesome, as usual!
    Great tone and ripping licks. Mad props to you, Jedi!

    His lip sync was a little off on the shooby-do-wahs, the Russian judge is going to dock him a point.

    Fuckin' awesome man!

    I've been trying to play that tune since pretty much the time you were born. It is so hard to get the rhythm part right and you did a hell of a job.

    Oh, and your tone sounded great too!

    Nice work!
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Default "I'm The One" Cover - In Honor of the 41st Anniversary!

    Thanks dudes!

    Also, I want to say itís unfreakingbelievable that Ed played this tune on a standard Fender trem not only in the studio, but LIVE too. So much trem abuse, and a lot of it is right before chords where you donít have time to put the strings back to pitch. I putzed around with this on my new Strat that has locking tuners, a graphite nut and a fresh application of lubricant and it still wasnít as stable as it would need to be for this tune.

    The Russian judge? Thatís definitely fake news.
