    So I had my guitar tuned to standard for once and decided to play some Van Hagar.

    Love this tune. Don't like the CD skipping at the end.



    And yeah, I need a delay on the second half of the solo. I just kind of winged it anyway.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I don't care what ANYONE says, Black and Blue is a quintessential Van Halen song!
    Nice job, Show...

    It's a fun song to jam on. I did a few things differently than you, as par for the course, but seriously enjoyed your version. Hope to see you do more Hagar era vids.

    That was pretty good, Show!

    Such a great riff. I'd love to learn this one as well.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    Nice stuff, GTSOTR. Really some good playing there.

    NOT a fan of the song or half of that album, sorry.

    Keep'em coming, bro! Way to go!!!

    Nice job! The tune that got me into VH in the first place back in May of 1988.

    We actually played an all ages (mostly kids) outdoor venue down by the lake with a bunch of other young bands. This was before we had a singer.

    We played Bark at the Moon, YRGM, Black and Blue, ATBL, etc. instrumentally... Haha. The kids loved it!
