Since Eddie Van Halen’s “Eruption” is pretty complicated, I’ve broken it down into three separate sections. In the Intro video I play it at full speed and then slow. The following videos correspond to the three sections.

The tablature is here for all 3 sections, so be sure to download that first so you can follow along.

      Yes, Mt. Rainier, it’s basically in my back yard. But I have a place in Seattle too. Glad you are enjoying the lessons. BTW, we see these disasters on the news like Japan’s earthquake, tornados, just hope the mountain the beer is named after stays cool for awhile longer.
