    I think Eruption is way better and more intriging. But lets look at it this way, I play guitar and all the real players say that you can hise behind distortion but when you play on acoustic it shows what kind of player you really are. But regardless, I like Eruption

    sorry, I should elaborate rather than being a smart ass.

    Not about your opinion, just that there is any comparing the two. Spanish is fuckin great, but.....Eruption changed the world

    Exactly ... I know it's a matter of opinion and Spanish Fly is definitely cool, but Eruption changed the face of rock guitar forever.

    As I discovered both at the same time, I can't choose a favorite. Eruptino rocks more, but Spanish Fly is just damn perfect.

    Yeah, gotta go with Eruption, though Spanish Fly was the logical way to go for a second instrumental. Different vibe, awesome technique. How could he top Eruption?

    I'm gonna go with Spanish Fly, because it's so cool to hear that stuff on the acoustic guitar.

    Yea Glenn, and try to play it. It's somewhat easier to wing Eruption than Spanish Fly. Eruption can always turn the heads at the local music store, but Spanish Fly gets them comming on over and watching you. Out.

    Track 5, if I'm playing either of them in the music store, people are running for the door.

    Spanish Fly is amazing in its own right, but people, this isn't about opinions this is about fact! Eruption is a masterpiece! It changed muic! In 1:42 Eddie (with a little help from Mike and Al) signaled the end of tired old classic rock bands like Yes (Christ almighty I hate them...) and more importantly he drove a stake through the heart of disco.
