Ep69 Eruption Tapping | How Does It Work?

Guitar Music Theory

Oct 15 2020 • 49 mins

In this free guitar lesson, I demonstrate part of the instrumental track, “Eruption,” that is featured on the very first Van Halen record and performed by Eddie Van Halen. I explain how the finger tapping technique works, how the tapping uses arpeggios, and how those arpeggios create a chord progression that features modal interchange and harmonic minor. I also discuss how I dial in an Eruption tone and my reverb, delay, and phaser settings.
