...and it's a mother *ucker. Ed is even MORE amazing than I thought. The most difficult part is in the middle when it goes silent then he comes in with that kick @ss speed picking segment, before the tapping. That part is almost impossible to do right though I'm getting pretty handy with it now, after a lot of work. Try speed-picking a note then at the same time thrown in hammer-ons and pull-offs on another string while not interrupting the speed picking at all. He also does lightning fast ascending string skipping notes during this too up to the trills. I've seen a lot of guitarist play Eruption on stage over the years, but as we know ...it's never 'Eruption'. I'm working very hard to be the first, that I know of anyway, to pull this off live. Kudos Ed, ...you are AMAZING!! *Edit* (Changed thread title) Come on in and learn Eruption! Post! Post! Post! Any level ...but ONLY links to and from MLP members. Unless it's instructional - Please no "Look how good this cat does it" off YouTube, etc. Let's learn Eruption!!
