Learn how to play Eruption by Van Halen using our downloadable tab (Guitar Pro Tabs) & sheet music.
“Eruption” is an instrumental rock guitar solo performed by Eddie Van Halen. It is widely considered one of the greatest guitar solos of all time. It segues into “You Really Got Me” on the album Van Halen, and the two songs are usually played together by radio stations.
The song was also released as the b-side to the “Runnin’ with the Devil” single.
“Eruption” starts with a short accompanied intro with Alex Van Halen on drums and Michael Anthony on bass. The highlight of the solo is the use of two-handed tapping. “Eruption” was played on the Frankenstrat, with a MXR Phase 90, an Echoplex, a Univox echo unit and a 1968 Marshall 1959 Super Lead tube amp.
