    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.

    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!
