    Default The old JFRocks Van Halen stuff

    Long time since I posted here, 2012 tour. Anyways, I was looking up Van Halen lessons and ran into JFRocks.com. OMG, I had forgotten all about that site and the VH CD's he produced before getting the VH Lawyers to shut him down. I had bought the first couple CD's, but at the time it was way over my head, and 16 yrs later I have no idea if I even had those anymore.
    Did anyone here archive them and still have them? If not can you recommend any good alternatives?

    So I have everything up to OU812; unfortunately my OU812 CD/DVD was bad and I did not notice until checking it out way after everything was taken down. I know Jeff and Kelly pretty well there (I am a former forum mod) but they basically said the archives were gone......
    It's 5150 time!

    Jeff was a true badass. He tabbed and explained how to play VH like no one else at the time. Way before it was a nerdy thing to do. He was just fantastic for a guitar player wanting to learn those tunes.

    I saved about 20-30 videos of his on a hard drive somewhere, Iíll have to look.


    His best tip I took from him was, and this is how locked in he was, that Ed upstroked parts of the Unchained main intro and chorus chords.

    That's cool, I didn't realize he got that far. I remember having a few conversations with Kelly back in the day, good times. If you plan on sharing those, I'd definitely be interested. I ordered a Striped Series 5150, so I'm stoked to get a bunch of VH learning done before the guitar comes.

    Yes, he was a badass. I wish I was a better player back then and been able to really take advantage of it. I'd love to see some of those vid's if you find them. I have a couple old hard drives laying around I can search as well, I'm hoping I was smart enough to back up whatever I bought back then.

    I have everything he put out on CD-ROM before he was forced to stop. The final one was OU812. He was a GREAT teacher.
