    Default A bittersweet reminder of the brilliance of VH and EVH

    If you're in the mood, this reaction to LWAN is magic. Warning: you may find your eyes leaking.




    Michael is a humble, easy-going, easy-to-listen-to guitar teacher who has his focus on the things that matter guitar-wise.

    I am not doubting you, but there is no way I am watching some dude react to two hours of a rock concert!
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    You can always just go to sections, or just watch his heartfelt 5 minute intro. Or not. Just if you're in the mood

    There's nothing revelatory and not too much talking all things considered. Just genuine emotion and reaction that reminds you of what you felt when you were exposed back in the day as opposed to being 30+ years in the know and used to it all.

    Dude is cool. I've seen a few of his videos long time ago. This board hates reaction videos for some reason.

    The fact that "reaction videos" are even a thing is a sad commentary about the era we live in. Reactions are cool, like in "hey dude, did you hear the new VH record" "really awesome bro, I stood in line for hours in front of blockbuster but it was worth it." No one would've thought about getting a video camera out to actually film said reaction. The lack of quality new art forces people to just look at reactions to old art.

    The difference in what Michael does is that he watches along with a guitar and pauses frequently to break down or explain what's going on. It's more of an in-the-moment lesson than a reaction video.

    Till you get to a video like Amsterdam's outro solo where he just says "fuck it" lol

    Oh wow, I actually watched this back when he passed away and forgot about it. I subscribed to Michaels channel and needed to mourn a little with somebody who "get's it". My family, while sympathetic, didn't really understand. I knew you guys and some out there on the net would.

    I think there was a segment in Ed's solo maybe during Mean Street where Michael just shakes his head and comments "Mother fucker... sigh". It actually cracked me up because I had said that so many times watching that LWAN video and said the same thing. I knew he'd get it. lol It was good to laugh that day. I had lost my dad a month earlier, so it was just a big shitfuck year.
