Thread: Spanish Fly

    I was listening to some VH (Spanish Fly to be specific) when a couple of my unappreciative roommates walked past my room. They both stopped dead in their tracks when they heard it. They were like, "Whoa! Who's that?" Needless to say they were shocked when they found out it was Eddie. I never really appreciated Spanish Fly until a couple of non-believers were converted by it.

    I've said this before, though I prefer Eruption as an instrumental, Spanish Fly is actually more impressive to me. I've strummed a few chords (very poorly) on both electric and acoustic guitar, and the fact that Eddie pulled that sound out of an acoustic guitar is just awesome.

    Is it true that Ed boils his guitar strings to keep them in tune? I can't remember where I heard that.

    Does it work?

    actually spanish fly is ok for a rock guitarist but it sounded almost too sloppy to me.
