I’ll be showing you a relatively unknown picking technique used by Eddie Van Halen. It can be heard in countless Van Halen songs, including "I’m the One," "Spanish Fly" and "Jump." This technique is based on a combination of hammer-on notes and alternate-picked notes. Eddie likes to take a fingering pattern and hammer on the notes on one string, then alternate pick the same pattern on an adjacent string.
The EVH Wolfgang guitar is the only way to go if you want what Eddie Van Halen plays today.
Based on Van Halen’s legendary Frankenstein guitar, the EVH Striped Series is a stripped-down speed machine with a single humbucker and volume control, plus Van Halen’s trademark striped finish in three different motifs—black and white, yellow and black, and red, black and white.
