    Thank you Jape, for saving my dignity

    I sure could've used this vid a couple years ago, oh well, LOL!

    Hey Show, now you know why I gave it to you dude, LOL!
    I posted my old rendition partially for you to check out, when I quoted you back on page 2

    I barely play guitar anymore, I just come here to argue about pick-ups, HaHa.

    Hey, i always thought it was a bar too, back until recently.

    Leave it to Eddie, to make a bar dip lick, way more complicated!
    Part of his creative genius.

    i guess it's because he played it on a Korina V, if i'm not mistaken.

    And i totally recall reading an interview with him, where he stated what
    guitar he used to play the rhythm on DDL, and my reaction was:
    LIES! You use the bar in that opening riff!

    I owe Ed an apology.

    Actually Jape, I never thought it was a bar.

    I had just got the Luxe pedal and got enthused to figure out DDL.
    Some dude on the tube was showing it with a bar, and I was no way it's a bar.
    So that made me really want to learn it. I slowed the CD down and heard a bend, and a slide, and apparently Uncle Ben heard that too.

    The vid I posted was like the last time I played that song, from a couple years ago, LOL!
    I learned it, recorded it, then tossed it from my mind.
    I think I've forgotten about 95% of everything I've ever learned, LOL!
    In case I ever get a hankering to play VH again, I got some vids to go back to and relearn from.

    KING'S X!

    I can only get that song down, at "step dad" speed.

    Thanks, Jape!! That's it!!

    I learned this years ago and everything taught "whammy".
    We were all in the same boat. "This whammy thing just don't sound right".

    Doug Steele does a great job breaking down Van Halen songs.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCb...ww?app=desktop

    He's pretty funny too, and not boring to learn from. He mostly focuses on the first 5 albums, but he has a few others as well.

    Check him out.

    I love Doug, and he was a frequent poster at CVH.com

    My proudest moment was telling him how i thought the ascending hammer on lick/scale
    in the unaccompanied "Fools" solo went (he was doing it a different way).

    He tried it & said: You were right, it does start on the first fret, not the second, then
    ascends...

    He gave me credit, then played it the new way.

    Yeah, Doug is a very cool resource for VH too, very helpful knowledge he has.

    But I lost a little bit of confidence in him when I looked up the spazzo guitar break in TYWH, and he said something like, 'oh, I don't know what the fuck he did, figure it out yourself, ha ha!'
    Bye bye, click. LOL!
    I don't think anybody can, or ever will be able pull that one off again, not even Edward.
    The notes and the echoed notes were a one time magic moment, recorded on WACF, never to be duplicated since.
