I love this guitar solo. Go van halen!
Every little ten year old loves themselves for being able to play this, but I'd love to see them write something this awesome:)
DAMN!

nicslager
When I become rich and famous, I'll let ya know
EDDIE!!!!
Im glad to hear that you can play it. Can you write something this good though , nickslager ? Just sayin :-)
Classic!!!
nicslager
I'm 13 and I can play it
You can't play this w/o the following tune
If the youngest pro guitar player can play it anyone can learn it

Eruption.... . c h e e r s to eddie
Eddie is God
@def lep - agreed!!!
We need more music like this not the crap we have now
No one can play guitar like Eddie Van Halen. Especially people today. No one today can play any instrument either or sing

I freakin love Van Halen, and it does remind me of summer .
My old band mate Micha Scoville would warm up playing this then heartbreaker by led zep....at 15 yrs old
Steve Hackett invented the 3 note hammer on technique... G e n e s i s Return of the Giant Hogweed 1972
Theres this guy that was in my band, who could play this whole solo! It was Awesome!!!!!
You should here Ron thoul. He is bumble foot. Now plays with guns and roses. Look him up. His music is real. The album hands is amazing.
NOT OVERRATED ,However according to Eddie he once saw Jimmy Page years before use this fingertappin g / h a m m e r on deal while playing the guitar solo in Heartbreaker . God bless Eddie , but most of all GOD BLESS JIMMY PAGE !!
Overrated but still legendary. Van Halen is great.
Eddie Rocks
Attention all users!!!! All that noise is coming from a guitar by the way!!!! VH is a myth !
According to the Aerosmith book walk this way, when joe perry heard eruption and found out Eddie was 18 years old he wanted to quit playing guitar. I've said it many times, there's guitar playing before Eddie and after. He changed everything about the electric guitar with the release of the first van halen record.
Omg Edward!
Such a blast. Enjoy it. It holds up and is a great intro to thier cover of You Really Go Me. Peace.
badass like me

Its blowin mind!
lol, its so funny so many find it hard to believe that, before this little under-2-minu t e s solo, NOBODY played like this. Oh sure there were 70s jazz shredder types in silken robes soloing over jazz changes for hipsters. But nobody was doing this in hard rock circles, much less pop music!
Eddie Van Halen is a great guitarist, and this is a kick-a** instrumental , but there are better guitarist who have songs where they shred more.
They can't play Eruption back-to-back with You Really Got Me because of the stupid RIAA licensing.
eruption put a fire under every guitarists asses
It is exactly what it claims to be, an eruption. Quite possibly the greatest guitar solo of all time. Eddie at his PRIME!!!
eddie, great guitarist!
