In Honor - Eddie Van Halen

I have posted record loop topics often on Set List - where from time to time I will write about the same topic over the course of months or years.  I  suppose this is out of passion for the subject matter.

In this post, I am record looping Eddie Van Halen's "Eruption" solo as performed live.  This is out of pure passion for the performance.
