    So which is the best?
    Eruption?
    Spanish Fly?
    316?
    316 Live?
    Cathedral?

    I think that 316 from F.U.C.K. is the best.It just shows what the master can do.And talk about a mood alterating song too.You just can't be in a bad mood after hearing that tune.
    No president puts joy in my life, but Van Halen puts joy in my ears.

    Well... doesn't "316" live consist of all the other Eddie instrumentals you mentioned?!

    It might not count as an Ed solo, but I love what he does in "1984"
    Traditionally-speaking, its gotta be "Eruption", which changed rock guitar forever. And then he blew us away again with "Spanish Fly" and the intro to "Little Guitars"...

    Not including his solos on the full-length songs, I'd say Eruption.

    Eruption changed everything and there hasn't been anything to come close to it since. Lately, I am just loving what Ed did on The Full Bug, not to mention Romeo Delight, and Take Your Whiskey Home.
    Could this be magic?

    You got that right! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    But his best IMO is Eruption! Imitated by almost every aspiring guitarist! There are a lot of famous guitarists that still play a bit from Eruption in their own guitar solos.
    Spanish Fly is unbelievably fast and Little Guitars intro is beautiful and hard to play!!!! \
    The intro to Mean Street is so innovative it makes me think that he IS the master of guitar ...NO QUESTION! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    Just go for it!

    My answer was Eruption before I even looked at the options.
