Top 10 Songs with the Best Eddie Van Halen Guitar Solos
Eddie rewrote guitar playing in 1 minute and 42 seconds as rock journalists have opined. I agree! The only one that is comparable is Hendrix Star Spangled Banner!. CASE CLOSED!.
One of the best solos ever... It Opens The Door to a complete new world of hard rock music and guitar, all thanks to Eddie, best guitarist ever behind Jimi.
This is the end all debate over who the greatest guitarist ever is! No talent is better than his innovation.
This is definitely an absolutely amazing guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen. A masterpiece.
This is certainly not the best Van Halen solo ever... but its undeniably an amazing treat to the ears! Just because this song appears in a pop album, rockers tend to dismiss it... In my opinion, from purely musical point of view, this Van Halen- Michael Jackson collaboration is nothing less than fabulous! One of the best pop-rock songs ever composed... a timeless classic! Van Halen's solo adds the electrifying feel to the song, and Jackson's sheer genius sparkles all along... Long Live Eddie... kudos to Michael Jackson!
Beautiful shredding solo, that fits in with an artist like Michael Jackson. Two of the most talented musical artists in their own right!
I didn't know he did the solo on this song.
Maybe not the best but maybe the only person to cram 29 notes in a measure evenly... hehehe
I love Eddie Van Halen's guitar solo on this song.
This song is ' incredible everything about this song is amazing the guitar, drums, Bass and vocals, whoever said takeaway david and Eddie sucks that's not true he is an amazing guitar player
Take away David lee Roth on Vocals and Eddie sucks!
Shredding all the way through, utilizes all of his famous techniques.
From the opening solo in which Eddie was emulating the popular 70s funk bass slapping technique, to the extreme string bending of the main solo, Eddie is demonstrating that he is not limited to his trademark finger tapping solos, and that he can do things with a guitar never before imagined by mere mortals. Amazing!
Eddie Van Halen's solo on Mean Street is very unique...I personally love it.
No Doubt one of the wildest Eddie solos I've heard besides Eruption
Love the reverb and the vibrato. I just sounds, and is, Amazing!
Extremely difficult to play and a testament to eddies amazing talent
It's definitely not the hardest solo Eddie Van Halen has done (Eruption comes to mind). But it really flows, and doesn't get the credit it deserves.
Awesome song and solo!
What not van halen
