    Default Tune EVH Plays after cathedral

    I have been dying to get the TAB, or any identification of what Ed is seen playing after cathedral in this link: I've always loved the tune but I have no idea how he's playing it (what frets, notes) and if anyone can help me identify or give me the tab on it, thank you.

    As far as I know that's no tune in particular. Just some cool riff with an octave pedal. I think he played it for that entire tour, so it was probably a something he was vibing with at the time.

    He's played that for a long time...(Well, it's an "old" riff he played before) If I remember correctly, you can also hear it on one of the 1984 boots during his solo.

    I play it all the time. Its all on the low E string and goes from the 5th to 7th and 9th fret (I think without having a guitar in my hand) with the BOSS Octave pedal. Cool little easy lick,

    Here is me playing it a couple years back... just crank on that BOSS Super Octave and rip on that Low E and make sure to let it GROWL at the end....

    I read the initial title on this thread before opening it and my stupid brain through you mean Secrets off Diver Down.

    I've called that "The Majestic Riff" for years. -laughs-
    In 2008 he threw in bits of HBSD using the Octave pedal.
    I can only imagine what was to come for the Majestic Riff.
