    I'll give him a solid 8.

    He's able to express himself quite well behind the keys, and I can tell it's Eddie. That says a bundle for a keyboard player. I mean, it's hard to be distinctive on drums, a little easier on guitar... but on keyboards the sounds are pre-programmed. It all has to come from the heart and the fingers.

    10 - I would love to hear him play on a baby grand sometime, though. Hear something classical since that was the basis for his training early on.

    And we have yet to hear the cello!
    Could this be magic?

    i rate edward a 10 on keyboards, i think he is great on the ivorys and i think that is what helped him become the awesome guitar player he is.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    I know one keyboardist in Metal/Rock that I'd rate a solid 10: Jens Johansson of Stratovarius.

    Ed's around 5 or 6, but that's more than enough for Van Halen. And as a musician he's a straight 10, I think he could be a genius at every instrument if he'd practice it long enough.

    a solid 8 for me 'cause it's finally a melodic guy on the keyboard except for 1984 intro .
    he's good for sure ...

    I'd give Eddie and Alex 10's on their keyboarding skills, since they're both classically trained.

    Ed's a 10, he's classically trained. I am sure he can do a hell of a lot more intricate stuff that than "Jump" and "Love Walks In." [img]smile.gif[/img]

    His keyboard playing is as good as his guitar playing-10.

    9.5. But of course he's off the scale for guitar playing.

    He was good enough to win a competiton at Long Beach City College back in the day. THe funny thing was he couldn't sight read so he learned it by ear and pretended he was reading.
