100 Greatest Guitar Solos: No. 46 "Hot For Teacher" (Eddie Van Halen)
“I winged that one,” says Eddie Van Halen. “If you listen to it, the timing changes in the middle of nowhere.
"We were in a room playing together and I kind of winked at the guys and said, ‘Okay, we’re changing now!’ Because I don’t count, I just follow my feelings. I tend to do a lot of things in threes and fives, instead of fours.
“My weird sense of time just drives my brother Alex nuts because he’s a drummer, so he has to count. But generally he’ll say, ‘Well, Ed, you did it in five again. If that’s the way you want it…’ But that’s not the way I want it, that’s just what feels right to me.”
