I am going to reflect on a guitar player and his style of playing that I feel impacted the rock and roll guitar playing community forever. Mr. Eddie Van Halen. To this day, I can listen to most of Van Halen’s songs and his style still resonates within me and it never gets old. Even though I am no where near that style of playing today, I often drift back and time, crank the iPod, close my eyes, and imagine that I am Eddie. Thanks to Eddie Van Halen for all his inspiration to all of us.
