I'll never forget when the first album came out and how it influenced me...thank you EVH RIP

That makes 2 of us. He was a huge influence for me when I picked up the guitar. That brown sound was off the hook!!

It's funny how a lot of us can remember the first time we heard him. It's a testament to how completely mind blowing he was. There are only a few guitarists that left that kind of mark with me. Rest In Peace Eddie Van Halen. We've lost so many luminary musicians this year..... I sure hope 2021 gets better.

Yes Eddie was off the hook. Yes his technique was influential on the way I played guitar. But the one thing that has stuck with me since the first interview s I read in guitar magazines was that Eddie purposely never played the same solo twice, never played a cover song the same as the original, And used anything and everything down to the tremolo springs to get a sound out of his guitar.

Those statements alone changed my whole approach to guitar and music in general.
