His legato chops are pretty decent... other then that he's not much in the lead department. Some of his rhythms are pretty out there, but I love 'em. His tone is like no other... godly.
When you get your own signature equipment and make tens of millions of dollars from your music..........then........ and only then will I stop laughing at this comment. Goose asked a question and you tear apart a guitarist that you will never come close to accomplishing what he did with guitar and music?
I still don't get it, why won't a Big Muff work for solos? Gain shouldn't make a difference if you have good technique... but if for some reason he still needs more gain just get an overdrive pedal and use with the Big Muff.okay alow me to elaborate. i never said i wanna sound like van halen. or atleast thats not what i meant. actually, i personally have a jekyll and hyde, when i mix both channels together, it works great for that kind of soloing (doesnt sound like it, it just works). my buddy has got just a big muff for his main distortion. obviously dynamic solos arent going to really work there right? im going to buy him the kind of pedal that will help him achieve this for his b-day, no need to sound like van halen, just able to play solid sounding solos. this actually isnt about evh, my buddy just wants to solo properly!
btw, eddie rules.
...unlike the vast majority of shredders, eddie:
But then shredders run the signal thru a frequency delay which magnifies all their mistakes, and thats another part of the shred tone. There aint no masking in shred........And yeah, all those guys love to add delay to their lead tone.. you need it.. also masks a bit of sloppiness.
