How to Play Eruption
By Eddie Van Halen
(Tab)

Tuning:
E Flat

Guitar:
Any Strat style guitar with a Humbucker pickup at the bridge of the guitar.

Gear:
Eddie used a MXR Phase 90 script or something like that, use the newer  Block version if
want, but Eddie used a script instead of the block. He also used a boss equaliser, you
also use a MXR Distortion + if you want as well, just as good. He used sometimes two 
instead of just the one. And he also had reverb at about 2.5 Sec Decay time and a delay
about 500 probably 600 Mil Sec’s and a Tape Delay at the end. I would prefer a fender 
watt head amplifier stack but you choose.
