Watch the Weekly Workout #31 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym Weekly Workouts: Vol. 4
Back when I started the Weekly Workout Series in the beginning of 2015, one of the main intentions was to give you all a peak into what I was working on at the time. Well, these days it's all about Eddie - Eddie meaning Eddie Van Halen, of course. I have a few Eddie projects I'm working on and in shedding some VH-esque lickage I came up with this four bar lick, which takes ideas from Ed's "Panama" and "Spanish Fly" solos. The first half delves into something I would call "bend tapping" while the second half is straight up legato tapping to open strings with a cool minor blues inflection at the end.
Have fun with it!
