Re: Van Halen playlist - add your favourites to the thread

We play Jump in my band (me on guitar) and that solo is really tricky. The reason its so "all over the place" is that it was created by the sound guys while VH were at lunch. It's a pieced together section of licks and riffs Ed was playing in warm up and noodling around, so they put it together and that was the solo for Ed to learn when he got back from lunch. That's what I've been told anyway.

My favourite is Right Now which I think has the better guitar solo on. I do miss Eddie, he was the benchmark for the past 40 years and will be for the next. Incidentally, another great guitarist left us a few days ago, Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom. A super fast riffer if every there was one, gone so soon at the age of 41.

I'll try and find a clip of my band doing Jump somewhere

There is already one on here somewhere we did it a theatre during lockdown in October, it was really weird because we all had to socially distance and there was no audience, just a bank of cameras. We also hadn't rehearsed for 7 months... which wasn't the best idea for a live stream performance

Anyway... here you go, I'm on the far right with the RayBan wayfarers on playing the blue guitar.
