at request of a buddy of mine Rob, he suggested that i do a video on the playing style of Eddie Van Halen. Although I don't claim to sound exactly like him, nor do I play exactly like him, I have been playing Van Halen music since the day I picked up the guitar. If it wasn't for Van Halen I never would have started playing the guitar. So in this video I give my tips on how to make playing like Eddie easier, as well as show some of his common patterns.
