Van Halen Goes Acoustic

Van Halen Goes Acoustic

I do believe that is a Tacoma acoustic that Eddie is playing..

In honor of Guitar World’s February 2014 cover, here’s a little acoustic VH for your listening pleasure.

This live in-studio recording is from a DVD called The Downtown Sessions, which was included within a special package of the band’s 2012 album, A Different Kind of Truth.

The recording features David Lee Roth on vocals, Eddie Van Halen on guitar, Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and Alex Van Halen on drums.

The DVD contains several songs shot live acoustically, including “Panama,” “You and Your Blues” and “Beautiful Girls.”

Here’s their Kinks cover, “You Really Got Me.” Enjoy!

Some big time birthdays today!

Eddie Van Halen

Today, January 26, marks the 57th birthday of one Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, or ‘Eddie’ as we have all come to know and love him. Undoubtedly one of the most innovative, talented, and prolific guitarists of all time, and still putting forth crushing guitar licks to this day!

Today also marks the 43rd birthday of one Matthew Rahn Redinius, or ‘Mage’ as virtually no one knows him. Undoubtedly one of the most unknown, unheard, and unrehearsed guitarists of all time, but still living the dream and loving it to this day!

Happy Birthday fellas!

Now go play your d@^^n guitars! :)
