Happy 64th Birthday Eddie Van Halen (Watch “Little Guitars” Live)

Van Halen has often been considered the greatest guitarist by many and was a bona fide rock star during the 80’s with many Van Halen videos in regular rotation on MTV. His use of two-handed tapping, natural and artificial harmonics, vibrato, and tremolo picking, combined with his rhythmic sensibility and melodic approach, have influenced an entire generation of guitarists.  In honor of Eddie’s birthday lets check out Eddie rip on “Little Guitars” live from ’82….
