    Having some more fun with some Top.

    This tune is the genesis of VH fare like I'm The One and HFT.

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Great stuff, man! Nice video, nice playing as well.

    Oh, I always thought The Mighty One got the inspiration from La Grange to come up with Bottoms Up!

    Good call. Don't know why I forgot about Bottoms Up. Almost a blatant rip job.

    Nice work, Show!
    Billy is obviously a big influence on Eddie, in terms of tone, pinch harmonics, revved up blues etc. I always thought that Ace Frehley had a hand in that as well, so to speak.

    You should!

    It's good stuff and a lot of it is easily accessible.

    They're probably my second favorite band after VH. Especially their early stuff.

    No doubt, Show. Love the early tunes! I'm throwing Waiting For the Bus in my top five too learn.

    I've been working that one up too.

    The main riff is easy, the turnaround is what's giving me a little difficulty.

    I happen to be a follower of the Reverend Gibbons myself.
    Guitar playing is a little strange to me right now, but I managed to slap this togather for you guys
    This is my take on that turnaround, maybe it'll help;



    And, as you probably know, Ed actually stole that tapping thing from the Rev
