    Default Eddie's Legendary Swing on Display: I'm The One Slowed Down

    This might have been posted at some point, but I just saw it, and listened to it.

    The opening of this song, this slow...you can just feel the swing that you knew was there all along.

    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Insane that in some parts it is still fast, even slowed down that much.

    I found ths ISO track some years back, and the first thing I did was play it at the slowest speed, 25% I think. I'd done my best trying to play it for years, but being able to slow it down opened all the doors. I basically started learning it all over again, playing along at 1/4 speed and gradually building up. It corrected so many mistakes on my part. It didn't make me Ed, but now it sounds and feels the way it should.

    It don't mean a thing without the swing. Still my favorite Van Halen song of all-time.

    I had to learn this song Pre- Youtube slow mo. I thought I knew it, found out I didn't. Was then told by my old man - who doesn't even play guitar: why don't you just slow it down to 18 rpm on the stereo with vinyl and tune the string you start on to that sound? Blew my mind.

    Great clip! Someone a couple years ago did a visual analysis of the audio file, and found that the cursor following Edís pick attack (the quite obvious frequency spike) would ALWAYS align, dead-on, with Alexís drum beat every (however many notes).

    INSANE.

    The tone on the debut is THE EVH tone. The greatest tone of all time. Don't care whe he said about it or what YOU say about it.

    Sounds like a Stevie Ray Vaughan riff slowed down like this.
