Nicely done! Hey...maybe not note-for-note perfect but he hits all the great parts. And who am I to criticize...I can't do it any better than him so a tip of the hat to him.



I like Dweezil's version which IS played live in front of a crowd. If you don't wanna watch the whole video (even though the Van Halen story is totally worth it!) the song starts at about 5m10s!


I think John's being a little overly critical. This is an impressive cover of Eruption and an incredible cover of Ain't Talkin' About Love! Pete Thorn's version is absolutely perfect but, it isn't being performed live onstage in front of thousands of people. I'd be interested to hear Pete play this at a live show. I'm sure it would be awesome but, I doubt it will equal the precision of his tutorial video.



Not good at all. You want to see someone pull off Eruption almost as good as Eddie? Check out Pete Thorn. I believe there was a little too much alcohol in this rendition. Sorry Mr. McCready :(
