Tribute to Eddie Van Halen

I recorded this attempt at Van Halen’s ‘Eruption’ a few days after the untimely passing of Eddie Van Halen on 6th October 2020.

Eddie changed rock guitar forever – he was a huge influence.

We used to play this one in Backlash around 30+ years ago.

May he rest in peace – legend.

Pedalboard Upgrade – March 2019

Replaced a few old favourites including Tech21 Flyrig RK5, Strymon Flint, Boss CE-2, Xotic EP Booster & Pitchblack tuner & have taken my first taste of Helix with a Line 6 HX Stomp – well impressed initially & so much more experimenting to do – both with & without an amp. Kept some old favourites on board though – CS-2, Mini Dejavibe & have my old faithful Diamond Memory Lane Jr in the Stomps FX loop…

Gibson SG Standard – New addition! – July 2018 – Black Beauty

Delighted to get my hands on a nice Gibson SG again – this one’s a 2016 Standard.  I said bye to a nice strat (as a trade) but to be honest I’m preferring Tele to Strat this weather. Until now! – this SG is a dream to play.

Tele & SG for the foreseeable!

2019 – Deacci Upgrade!

SG upgraded with Deacci Pure Vintage ‘Zero’ (neck) & ‘Two’ (bridge) pickups

The Deacci’s have sparked the guitar into chimey phat clear goodness – cheers to Declan Larkin for working his magic again!
