    You know, I was thinking right now for the past 10 min trying to figure out what song would gel well with AFU? Lol, I came up with GU simply because the progression is similiar in that the scales he uses for these songs consist of two hand tapping on the low strings. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    A really good technique to have especially if you like to fly. I mean I don't have the beat count, youd have to ask a drummer, but it's incredibly fast. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Now for a choice and my explanation for both songs will start out at the loser, which would have to be GU. Yeah, I know but the some reasons in a negative feel for the song has to do with the brothers techniques. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    Al used electronic drums that sped things up unnaturally and Ed used the trans trem to raise the pitch 1-2 octaves than normal. [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]

    It sounds awesome though and I'm LOL because I feel that you guys are looking at my explanation and going, "yah, but it sounds great dude" I know, those weren't negative feelings though just thoughts that occur.

    Since I never did really care for Get Up, I have to go with AFU.

    See my problem with AFU is a lyrical one. I can't stand the line:

    "When my axe cuts me deep, I let it bleed, off the stage off the strings down my face, all over me...."

    Yuck- Crappy lyrics there, sorry Sam.

    That's why I gotta go with Get Up

    Hmmmmm.....let's see

    Get Up:
    I hate the electronic drums, love the guitar work, the ending rocks and builds to a great finish vocally, can almost imagine the fun Sam & Mike are having doing it, the one song that's a barnburner on the album.

    AFU:
    Love the drums, no bass. In the beginning (not the whole thing) of the solo, it just feels to me that something's missing, or could've been better--I can't put my finger on it, but it just doesn't sound good.

    AFU. Get Up just sounds like a jam they decided to record.

    I guess that's why I dig it Glenn [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Also I think it's got the greatest song ENDING of ANY Van Halen song in the entire catalog. (That's right I said it)

    (Mind you I did NOT say Greatest SONG, just greatest ENDING)

    I like them both musically but the lyrics and vocals suck in both.

    I agree EM, thats why I picked AFU over GU. The drums are smokin' and puts Al at no2. on my top 5 Al favs. I can't beleive the rythm he gets out of the double bass, makes me wonder why there ain't more double-bass songs in their rotation.
